Make a Difference during your Divemaster training
Here at Go Pro Costa Rica we are dedicated to conserving our oceans. We train all of our divers to be ambassadors to the ocean. As part of this our dedicated ECO divemaster program, the only one of its kind, we are partnered with the non-profit Marine Conservation Costa Rica. With them we incorporate a number of unique opportunities into our Divemaster training.
Why the Eco Divemaster?
- A unique Marine conservation and research course. A certification only available at this facility.
- The opportunity to work on our local coral rehabilitation project during your time here.*
- The chance to complete actual scientific surveys with the non-profit and other educational bodies.
This is a great opportunity for anyone looking to complete their Divemaster with a larger focus on Marine Conservation.
- *please note that to work on the coral restoration project we ask for a donation to the non-profit.
