Our internship is different. It is lead by our in-house PADI Course Director, who is very hands on when it comes to teaching. You will interact with the CD daily, and he will personally conduct many of your divemaster training sessions. You will also be paired with a mentor, who is an experienced instructor; you will work one-on-one with your mentor while they teach real students! You will get hands on experience, tons of feedback, and a great opportunity to hone your skills.
Once you are a PADI Divemaster, it’s easy to take the next step, and become a PADI Open Water Scuba Instructor! This is a job we all love: teaching people to blow bubbles underwater! You get to share your love for the ocean, for diving, for adventure, with like-minded people from all over the world. And when your work day is finished, you debrief at the pool side bar.
