SSI Dive Courses

Marine Ecology Course


Exploration, Emotion, Experiences

The Marine Ecology course is a general marine biology course, but in our dives we dedicate especially to our environment: the Costa del Montgrí area and the Medas Islands Marine Reserve.
Why? Because when you learn more about underwater ecology, and about aquatic animal and plant habitats, you will observe behaviors and see creatures that may have gone unnoticed before… and this makes you learn more about our local ecosystem.

Who can take this course?

The SSI Marine Ecology courses are perfect for those Open Water divers or equivalent (SSI, PADI, ACUC, CMAS 1 *, etc.) who want to continue advancing in their training as a diver.
The requirements to access this course are:
– Have the aforementioned qualification
– Logbook (in digital or paper format)
– Be at least 10 years old
– You must fill out a medical form (if this is correct, you do not need a medical certificate, but If any contraindication to diving appears, then it will be mandatory to provide a medical certificate of aptitude for diving)
– Diving accident insurance in force (in the same way, if you do not have one you can hire one directly in Xaloc, cost: € 40 for annual insurance or a daily insurance at € 6 / day)
