The Deep Environmental Educational Program (DEEP) is a marine science program that integrates scuba training and scientific applications. DEEP was created by Thai Ocean Academy (TOCO) in partnership with marine scientists from Aow Thai Marine Ecology Center (ATMEC). DEEP strives to instill refined understanding and passion towards the marine environment from a young age, as early as 10 years old. The goal of the program is to educate students through an in-house developed curriculum by partner marine biologists, to a level that will be setting the bar for marine education worldwide.
By exposing students to broad experiences in the marine environment, ranging from reef monitoring to coral spawning and more, DEEP acts as a gateway to a deeper understanding of the natural world. Led by well-established scientists, conservationists, and leaders in the SCUBA diving world, our collaboration provides a unique recipe of skills and education to support the development of any curious mind.
The Program provided is split into 6 different levels, ranging from levels 0-5
