Chris is a PADI and BSAC instructor and has dived in the UK, the Mediterranean, USA, Maldives and extensively in the Red Sea. He was involved in the EDMA Dugong Survey and has regularly delivered presentations on dugongs and other marine life.
Emperor Divers, Hurghada, is presenting a 'one-off' chance to discover fascinating facts about undersea ecology that will enhance your diving experience and give you a new respect for the underwater world. Chris explains...
In the evening we will talk about Coral Reef Ecology and Symbiosis (the way different animals live together) before seeing it in action on some of Hurghada's liveliest coral reefs the next day.
Now the fun really starts; you'll learn about all about Dugongs, an endangered species and regularly spotted at Marsa Abu Dabab. You can join an optional excursion to this site near our sister centre in Marsa Alam (€45 supplement) where you'll dive with giant green sea turtles, guitar sharks and hopefully see the main event - a bone fide Dugong.
The next day you will visit two dive sites which are famous for their camouflaged life and your dive guide will give some tips on how to best spot them (and will hopefully find some for you as well)!
On the penultimate evening you'll look to the future, considering what may happen to the world's oceans and what you can do to help shape the future of our seas. On the final day of diving there will then be a chance to take action and help with a beach and dive-site cleanup (optional), before heading off to a special Divers' Night party to celebrate a great week!"
