What is Project AWARE?

Project AWARE is a global movement of scuba divers protecting our ocean planet – one dive at a time. Focused on the critical issues of Sharks and Rays in Peril and Marine Debris, Project AWARE empowers thousands to work together for a clean, healthy and abundant ocean planet.

What Part Do You Play?

If you have a passion for the ocean and everything within it. If you want to ensure that the ocean and its wonders can be enjoyed not only by yourself but also by generations to come. Now you can! Fins-on, or fins-off, you can make a difference.

If you’re thinking about learning to dive or looking to expand your dive education, completing your scuba training with Scubatude ensures that your dive center and instructor is in line with your own outlook and beliefs and is making an effort to support and protect the marine environment.

Being 100% AWARE

Scubatude is proud to be 100% AWARE! We have partnered with Project AWARE, and we have made a commitment to the environment. This means that we make a donation to the Project AWARE Foundation for Ocean Protection on behalf of every diver we certify!

It also means all our student divers will receive a Project AWARE limited-edition card when they complete a PADI course with us. Our goal is to train divers to the highest standards and to create divers who can interact safely, without negative impact our oceans.

What Does My Contribution Support?

As a 100% AWARE Partner we are contributing vital funds to protect the ocean planet and your support is paramount! Our donations are currently supporting the following two core areas of focus:

Marine Debris Prevention: Collecting data and removing devastating debris worldwide while tackling policy efforts to address long-term solutions.

Shark and Ray Protection: Securing protection for the world’s most vulnerable shark species. Together, we’re strengthening shark finning bans and closing policy loopholes in countries that matter most.

Our Goal

Project AWARE connects the passion for ocean adventure with the purpose of marine conservation. At Scubatude we want to ensure that Project AWARE is part of every certification that is earned. We are devoted to making great divers and protecting our world’s oceans.

We want to educate our students about the importance of protecting the marine environment and hope to inspire our divers to take part in Project AWARE activities. 

Our Project AWARE Specialist course is for divers and non-divers alike who care about our ocean and want to make a difference.

Project AWARE Dive-Against-Debris Specialty turns divers into Citizen Scientists who can make real change in our oceans.

Don’t just count your dives – MAKE YOUR DIVES COUNT!
