You have a question for us?
If you are a certified SSI/PADI Open Water diver or equivalent, you are eligible to participate in Reeflog. A level of familiarity and ease with dive equipment and dynamics will allow you to better enjoy spotting marine life, which is the essence of the survey dive.
We recommend that you contact your nearest Reeflog partner dive centre to lead your Reeflog survey dive. Your Instructor/Divemaster will walk you through basic marine life ID skills and survey techniques in a briefing. You can then use our Reeflog data collection slates to record your sightings during your dive. Once you are back on land, log in to our website and upload the data you collect!
As of now, our focus is to conduct underwater surveys working with scuba divers only.
