PADI Divemaster internship information
We accept all levels of diving certification and even non-divers who want a new challenge are more than welcome. Age is no barrier to becoming a diving professional either. The minimum entry age is 18, as for the oldest, there is no restriction. We have had candidates “retraining” for their new career after they had retired from work at 59 years young!
During your time with us you will learn to be a dive guide and teaching assistant. You will also learn how to interact with clients and students as well as various aspects of sales, customer services, equipment maintenance and obviously lots and lots of diving!
Throughout your PADI Divemaster internship our Team will be on hand to ensure you will have a great time and give you loads of assistance.
All diving is FREE for the whole duration you are with us, some of our interns manage over 100 dives! Every intern gets the minimum required number of dives required for certification.
On staff we have a PADI Master Instructor, PADI Staff Instructor’s and PADI Divemaster’s, who are all there to ensure your Divemaster internship runs smoothly, and that you make the best of all of the opportunities that are presented to you.
The majority of our PADI Divemasters have gone on to use the qualification for employment in some form or for continuing their education. Some are now working DM’s others continued on to be PADI Instructors.
The internship candidate places are limited, and on a first come, first served basis.
We run the internships all year round, however in the summer places are very limited due to our popularity. We are unique in allowing YOU to decide when your internship starts! We dont have start dates as we understand everyone has different schedules and at the end of the day, its YOUR internship!
Not PADI certified, don’t worry, as there are crossovers for all levels of BSAC, SSAC, CMAS, FEDAS, SSI, NAUI, SAA, SCOT SAC etc, so just let us know what agency and what level you are and we will tell you the next PADI level required or check our our crossover table here.
English not your first language, no problem, we have had candidates on our internships from more than 25 countries ( check our World of interns map). The PADI materials come in many languages, although you must have basic conversational English to start the internship. During your time with us your English will improve HUGELY and who knows you can teach us a few words of your language too.
To begin the internship you must be:
- 18 years old
- Be fit for diving
- Ready for a life changing experience
