KOH TAO C.O.R.A.L (Conservation Of Reefs & Aquatic Life)

Our Divemaster and Instructor programmes on Koh Tao include marine resource management seminars and coral and fish identificaiton workshops. On Koh Tao we also offer our candidates the chance to participate in coral reef regeneration, with programmes beginning for seahorse breeding and reintroduction.

This one-day course is available to anyone who has completed a PADI certified open water course, and for those who wish to make a difference. We at C.O.R.A.L concentrate on the value of keeping our natural resources abundant, with minimal impact on aquatic life and natural habitats.

The C.O.R.A.L experience involves a morning where you learn to understand captive propagation of corals, under controlled conditions, and a hands-on ‘fragging workshop’ to prepare new specimens. The afternoon consists of two dives where captive specimens are re-introduced back into the reef, and new coral colonies are collected for analysis upon return. We aim to record data from all dive sites in Koh Tao to get a better understanding of why certain species appear, and what preventative measures can be taken to help save our reefs. Our future objectives are to re-introduce lesser-seen species to Koh Tao, such as sea horses, rays, shrimps, and even sharks…do you want to learn more and be part of the solution?

COURSE COSTS:

One Day Course – 3,500 THB

Unlimited Experience – 9,500 THB

We also encourage you to take that knowldege further with envrionmental internships that Dive Careers conducts in conjunction with CORE Sea on neighbouring Koh Phangan. These internships are the only diving internships with a credible scientific base conducted in the Gulf of Thailand.
