PADI DiveMaster Course

As a divemaster, you not only get to dive a lot, but also experience the joy of seeing others have as much fun diving as you do. You’ll gain dive knowledge, management and supervision abilities so you become a role model to divers everywhere. We want you to participate on courses with our experienced Master and IDC Staff Instructors and on a wide variety of dive courses and dive tours. Working with your mentors gives you a good overall view of different ways to teach and guide divers. As a PADI Divemaster, you’ll lead others as you supervise scuba diving activities and assist with diver training.

Love scuba diving? Want to share it with others on a whole new level? Take the PADI Divemaster course and do what you love to do as a career. Scuba divers look up to divemasters because they are leaders who mentor and motivate others. The PADI Divemaster course is your first level of professional training. Working closely with a PADI Instructor, you’ll fine-tune your dive skills, like perfecting the effortless hover, and refine your rescue skills so you anticipate and easily solve common problems.


The course is scheduled over 4-8 weeks (if you’re short on time, we can adjust this), which is a more relaxed training schedule than with most operators, which gives you a better opportunity to see how a busy dive school is run, take in a few more fun dives as well as spending more time with your instructor and our team of divemasters. The Divemaster program can be combined with the Master Scuba Diver program, to improve job placement opportunities.

Learn to help impart that love of diving to people taking their first breaths underwater and to celebrate at the completion of their course. The Divemaster course involves developing your knowledge of dive theory, assisting on a dive courses, to develop control and problem-solving of diving activities; guiding tours, underwater navigation and customer relations. Our dedicated Divemaster Training Program (headed by Master Instructor Manu Valdes & IDC Staff Instructor Tina Major) is very flexible to accommodate every candidate.


Not forgetting the hard work and role model standard you will be working towards, there is also the fun side. After your training, we offer job placing opportunities and our optional 2-week Internship program to give you a head start in the job that is your passion!
