Divers at the Ambassadors of the Sea Dive Center in the South Caribbean are PADI recreational divers, many taking on "lay" underwater archaeological training, certified by the Nautical Archaeological Society (NAS). They consider themselves and train themselves to be "purposeful divers". Their goal is to protect marine ecosystem systems, the life and culture of responsible fishing and the historical legacy that has emerged from the relationship of the coastal population with the sea. In underwater archeology, the recreational purpose is: re-create the stories of the historical legacy that lies on the seabed, contributing its grain in salt along with the empirical knowledge of its communities, combining it with the expertise that brings knowledge of related sciences. They call that purposeful recreational diving.
