Divemaster

Go Pro..... PADI Divmeaster is the first step in becoming a dive professional within the recreational dive industry. From here you can move onto become a PADI Open Water Dive Instructor and Specialty Dive Instructor.

Our Divemaster program is run over three months (minimum) and is designed to take you through the diving theory, skills practicum and diver management skills you need to guide diving groups locally, interstate & overseas.
