Sustainable Diving

with Aloha Diving

Also, we as divers can contribute to the protection of our reefs and oceans and reduce the impact to a minimum.

Here are some hints for our diving customers

  • Be attentive: report to your dive center any environment violation you have observed
  • Avoid trash: (also during your vacation) Collect rubbish during your dives wherever possible
  • Behave under water: more knowledge about the marine life allows you to adapt better to it
    (grab the opportunity to increase your knowledge)
  • Mind your buoyancy and don’t forget: Your legs became much longer with the fins!
  • Avoid sun lotion, better wear our UV protection shirt
  • Avoid the use of ‚one way’ plastic items wherever you can!

Marine Ecology

This program provides a general understanding of the complex and exciting science of marine ecology, which is the study of how organisms interact with each other and the environment, the flow of energy through communities, and the link between ocean ecosystems. You will earn the SSI Marine Ecology Specialty certification after completing this program.

Marine Ecology

We have a foundation to protect the nesting turtles in Phuket as well as to promote clean seas and beaches on the island. It’s called Mai Khao Marine Turtle Foundation which is located at JW Marriott Resort and the Department of Marine and Coastal Resources making big efforts to protect, hatch and treat insured turtles at the Cape Panwa and Tablamu.

Coral Identification

Coral Reef Conservation is a to target of Department of Marine and Coastal Resources. Many Hotels joined forces to and develop own conservation programs like Thavorn Hotels and Resorts with their website: https://www.phuketcoralconservation.com

Manta & Ray Ecology

Manta Trust focus on conducting robust RESEARCH to inform important marine management decisions. With a network of over 20 projects worldwide, they specialise in COLLABORATING with multiple parties to drive conservation as a collective; from NGOs and governments, to businesses and local communities. Finally, they place considerable effort into raising awareness of the threats facing mantas by EDUCATING people about the solutions needed to conserve these animals, and the wider underwater world. Thailand is blessed with beautiful coastlines on both sides of the country. Through multi-faceted research, the Thailand Manta Project is working to shed light on the manta populations on both sides of the nation, and the threats that are impacting them.

Shark Ecology

Shark conservation is the practice of protecting shark species and their habitats. Sharks play an important role in balancing the marine environment and provide stability to many other marine ecosystems. For Shark Guardian, the goal of shark conservation is to ensure that sharks will be around for future generations to enjoy and also to recognize the importance of sharks for humans and other species alike.

Fish Identification

The ocean is filled with fascinating and beautiful fish of every shape and size. This non-diving specialty program teaches you the skills and concepts required to identify the common families of Caribbean, Indo-Pacific, and Red Sea reef fish. You will earn the SSI Fish Identification Specialty certification after completing this program.
