PADI Open Water Diver Course PADI Open Water Diver Course

At Eco Guide Cafe,
we cultivate environmentally friendly Green OW Divers.

The benthic (seabed) impact caused by divers is significant, especially when it comes to coral damage, which has become a serious issue.
Mistakes by inexperienced divers frequently lead to contact with the seabed. To address this, we offer the Green OW Diver course.
We train Green OW Divers who have acquired neutral buoyancy skills, ensuring they can maintain a stable position underwater.

  • Eco Guide Cafe's OW Course

    This course is an active learning based on diving and aligned with the SDGs (Sustainable Development Goals).
    It includes "Awe" learning to cultivate a sense of awe for the diverse organisms, such as corals and benthos, and practical learning of the "Green Fins" code of conduct recommended by the United Nations Environment Programme. It also includes training on the "No Touch Coral" skill to protect baby corals. Optionally, you can learn about Green Nutrition to incorporate an SDGs lifestyle into your daily diet, and Green Economics to achieve a sustainable society.
