Live the Dream

Make your passion your profession...


Do you dream of living and working on a tropical island? Have a deep love for the ocean? Are you longing to swap your desk job for a new adventure? Then maybe it's time for a career change! Go Pro and become a PADI Divemaster. Within 4-6 weeks we can help you expand your knowledge and diving skills to a professional level. We can tailor the course to your individual needs, but remember, the more you put in, the more you get out of it! Your qualification will allow you to supervise recreational diving activities, assist on PADI training courses, and means you are just one step away from becoming a PADI Open Water Scuba Instructor. You will be working closely with a mentor as well as other dive professionals and trainees at the resort, expanding your knowledge and honing your dive skills to the professional level. PADI Divemaster training develops your leadership abilities, your personal dive skills and your understanding of the underwater world.

The Divemaster Program

Divers prepare their equipment for the next dive.

Getting Started

You will start your course assisting Divemasters and Instructors with their day-to-day job. Through immersion, you will learn the daily routine and what it takes to prepare a dive trip every day. In this phase, you learn about dive sites and how to read water conditions, practice your navigational skills and study your Divemaster manual. You will also begin practising your "skill circuit" with other divemaster candidates, learning how to properly demonstrate skills to beginner divers. Of course, this is all in addition to getting in as many dives as possible!

Learning from Others

Throughout your training, although you will learn from all instructors, you will have one mentor to help guide you throughout the process. Over the next days, you will tag along different courses until you are ready to assist actively on courses and help teach together with an Instructor. These assists are crucial, as they are the first stepin preparing you how to teach divemaster led workshops such as scuba reviews. Surface intervals will be filled with mapping a dive site, developing an emergency action plan and practising dive briefings. We will also help you perfect your rescue skills and theory knowledge.

Finishing Up

You will be the star of your own course. Now, it's up to you to be in charge of organising a dive trip. You will prepare dive equipment and boat roster, give briefings and guide certified divers – all under the watchful eyes of your mentor. A "stress-test" in the swimming pool will mark your last in-water exam before you become a real PADI Divemaster. Finally, your course will conclude the course with the legendary snorkel-test. But that's a whole other story...
