Our 5-day Snorkelling for Marine Biology residential allows you to explore the UK waters which are full of amazing marine life, but they are often under-appreciated. This course will give you a taste of our fascinating underwater world and will qualify you as a British Sub Aqua Club Snorkel Diver.
Aimed at beginners, this progressive course will cover practical skills and theory sessions.
Each day will take you on a new adventure at the astonishing Scottish coast. Time out of the water will be spent learning about marine habitats and species, marine conservation and current threats to our oceans. Talks will be from centre staff and guest speakers.
Our residentials also give you the chance to develop a range of transferable skills. These types of skills help across many areas of life and are particularly good for including in job or education applications. Here are some of the transferable skills that are likely to be covered in this residential:
– Communicating with others
– Working as a team
– Managing your time
– Taking the lead
– Keeping focused
– Problem solving
– Decision making
This course is open to young people aged 16-25. When you book, it is essential that you enter the age and attendees name in the Order Notes at the checkout. If the attendee is under 18, the booking must be made by a parent/guardian.
