A PADI Divemaster serves many functions including assisting PADI instructors with courses, conducting PADI programs, and leading certified divers. The process of becoming a PADI Divemaster is a transition from a recreational level diver to the ranks of the professional. It takes dedication, professionalism and attention to detail. You will go beyond your current undertanding of diving physics and physiology, explore the history and current state of equipment and technology, interact and assess the environment and become a master at dive planning and briefing.
We do not believe in rushing people through this most important step. For that reason we do not offer internships or guaranteed time frames. We will work with you to make sure that you feel comfortable with each section of the course and that by the time you've completed your course you feel like the PADI professional that you've become.
