Marine Scientist Training

Dive Training- We provide PADI Open Water & PADI Advanced Open Water Training as well as Emergency First Response Training.  We are accredited as a PADI Dive centre with fully certified instructors.  Gain your education with us and jumpstart your career!

Marine Science Training- Learn about the underwater environment when you dive! We will teach you marine biology, conservation techniques, tropical ecology and more.  We offer advanced PADI training, PADI underwater navigator training and PADI Project AWARE Fish Identification Course to enhance your education. Make the most out of your training!

Reef Surveys- Apply your knowledge! Work with our partners, the Bahamas National Trust, to protect the reef by surveying and collecting data used to sustain the environment.  Help make a difference and make a lasting environment so that the reef can be around for generations to come!

Marine Conservation & Dive Management-  Once you become an expert diver, take your knowledge further by gaining boat handling experience, survey dives, and archive sessions & science.  On completion of the course, those who have a relevant degree will be considered for a role as Chief or Assistant Scientist with Gapforce, and for those without a relevant degree there is the opportunity to stay on as a Trainee (all expenses covered) for an additional phase. Don’t miss out!

Community Involvement- Come up for air once a week and volunteer on projects and activities with the local children of Staniard Creek.  From basic lesson plans teaching about fish to teaching children to swim, make a difference in a child’s life.
