Beautiful Oceans is an exciting new training organization. While similar to PADI or DAN, they are unique, distinctive, and specialize in coral reef marine science courses for dive professionals and their customers. Prior to 2006 if a scuba diver or professional wanted to learn more about marine biology they would have to enroll in a college program, join an expedition which could be expensive, time consuming, and beyond the scope of their needs with too much excessive information, or enter an existing environmental programs which did not fulfill their needs.
The founders of Beautiful Oceans are marine biologists from prestigious and world renowned McGill University in Canada and have participated in numerous expeditions and conservation programs in the Caribbean. Their knowledge and experience are unsurpassed and their programs reflect years of education, training and experience.
Beautiful Oceans programs lead to the distinctive Science Instructor rating and certification, designed to provide dive professionals with a detailed understanding in selected topics of marine biology, ecology, species and ecosystems. Science Instructors are authorized to teach coral reef biology to divers and snorkelers while at the same time providing them with the tools and the know-how for conducting state-of-the-art dive briefings.

My PADI Divemaster course was the most thorough training I have ever received. In the Bay Islands I got to know Divemaster trainees at other schools, and no one elses program compared .
