Join us for 2 Wednesday evenings, 18th and 25th August 2004, from 6-9pm, and learn about those apex predators of the deep. Evening 1 kicks off with a slide show presentation focusing on shark biology and the ever-intriguing shark attack! We take a look at shark attack studies and statistics and apply it to us as scuba divers. We also do an up-to-date case study of an incident earlier this year. Our first evening is then wrapped up with an IMAX DVD screening and popcorn!
There is no exam or worksheet for this course! However, those adrenaline junkies amongst you stand to win a white shark cage dive to the value of R1350! All you have to do is request your assignment topic on the 1st night and present it the following Wednesday. The best assignment wins!
We are then visited by Zaid Manchest, guest speaker from the Two Oceans Aquarium. He will brief you on what to expect from your aquarium dive in the Raggie tank as well as chat about "Maxine's" release from captivity earlier this year.
Immediately following Zaid's visit, we'll receive another guest speaker all the way from Gansbaai and The Great White Shark Diving Company.
Saturday, 29th August, is the proposed date for our specimen dive. We'll take our slates, select a suitable dive site for collecting various bottom-dwelling sharks e.g. cat- and shysharks. Dive teams will carefully collect their specimens, put them in the tank and make various observations, take photos, measurements etc. Specimens will then be released without harm.
The 2nd and final dive for certification will be made on Sunday 30th August at the aquarium in the I&J Predator Exhibit. Your course cost includes the dive, aquarium visit, free entry for one spectator and discount for all other spectators/visitors wanting to come along.
An optional extra for this course, at a cost of R200, is a dive on the Birkenhead wreck in Gansbaai. This dive must be done in very specific conditions so a date will be decided on once course commences. Come into the shop and read the articles about this very exciting dive.
Minimum certification for a N.A.U.I Speciality is Advanced Scuba Diver.
Qualification for the Birkenhead dive will depend on student certification and no. of dives logged.
Course cost for this fantastic package is R1200. Book your course at Alpha Dive Centre through Boslife! Call 082 331 2127
