Ocean Guardian Camp

Snorkel, Scuba, and Marine Life Education Camps

Dive Into the Beautiful, Clear, Hawaiian Waters to Improve Scuba Diving Skills While Learning How to Protect the Precious Underwater Ecosystem.

Scuba Divers, snorkelers, and water enthusiasts know all too well the fragility of our marine environment. As underwater explorers, scuba divers have a unique obligation to protect this space to the best of their ability. The Ocean Guardian Dive Camp strives to create conservation-minded divers through education and training. This camp combines the NOAA Ocean Guardian Dive Club program with the PADI Underwater Naturalist and Peak Performance Buoyancy specialties; students gain both a richer understanding of the Hawaiian marine ecosystem and the skills to enjoy it responsibly.
