Discover Scuba DIving

DIVEMASTER

WHAT IS A PADI DIVEMASTER?
The first step in being a dive professional is becoming a PADI Divemaster.  As you progress through your Divemaster course, you’ll expand your diving knowledge, hone you skills and increase your confidence. Then, as a PADI Divemaster, you’ll use these attributes to lead, mentor and motivate other divers and experience the joy of seeing them transformed by the majesty of the the acquatic realm.

  • Supervise both training and non-training-related activities by planning, organizing and directing dives
