SILENCE OF THE SHARKS - December 2015

Did you know? Sharks don't feed on humans. Humans feed on sharks. The official SILENCE OF THE SHARKS video invites you to watch, share and join the campaign to save lives and make a difference!

THE VOICE OF DIVING INSTRUCTORS

Diving instructor?
Care about the ocean?
Your destiny calls!
Here’s your opportunity to make a difference.

Organizing 500 divers in one dive site is a logistic challenge by all means, but fortunately, we have successfully led such a dive as the opening protest of this campaign and our experience only ensures this dive will be a safe, fascinating and enjoyable one. Just as during the dive held in 2015, each diving instructor will be leading a group of 10 divers throughout an organized, well-planned ahead setup. However, since the experience and safety of many divers depends on our team of instructors, we seek for only the most trained and responsible leaders for this job. Are you up for the challenge?
