Have you ever been scuba diving and asked yourself or your buddy, "What is that fish?” or wanted to learn more about fish behavior?

If so, the Fish Identification Class is for you!

Denise will be doing a Fish Identification Class on Sunday morning, in combination with a 2 tank boat trip out of West Palm Beach. There is manual to review (with quizzes) to do first (anytime between now & then, on your own schedule), and then you will hit the water. Students will do 2 dives (wreck & reef) between 730pm-noon that day.

The Fish ID class is a VERY fun class; afterwards divers find they enjoy their dives even more when they recognize the fish they see.

The skills learned throughout this class can be used on ALL future scuba dives, because once you learn the main fish families and their characteristics it will help decipher fish species you see all over the world. For example, an angelfish in the Caribbean has a similar shape to an angelfish in Southeast Asia, but their colors and markings may be totally different. If you know what fish family a particular fish belongs to, it becomes much easier to look up the local name or at least be able to intelligently ask the locals what you saw. That works better than asking about a “yellow thingy with a funny tail fin.”

To enroll in this course, you need to be advanced open water certified, and have/rent your scuba gear.

When you sign up for this class at Dayo Scuba, you will get your FISH ID manual (to complete your at-home study), a fish ID Slate and a Fish Record Card.

Course fee is $249, which includes your academic materials, scuba gear, boat diving, dive training & certification card.

This class can also be counted for divers completing Specialty Classes for their Master Scuba Diver Rating (with either SDI or PADI).
