Here is some info on our PADI Divemaster internships. We also offer some IDC internships which you can find out about on our PADI IDC page.
Why a PADI Divemaster Internship ?
If you are looking to gain more experience as a Divemaster and want to dedicate at least 2 months to hands on training as a scuba professional then this divemaster internship is for you! You will be assisting in all areas of a resort dive center, whilst you complete your PADI Divemaster training.
Please note, this is an educational internship not a full work exchange as you cannot work in a dive resort as a guide until you have completed your professional training. As such, we offer a discount for helping out during your classes and training.

How will I spend my days during the Divemaster Internship ?
During your Divemaster internship, you will be diving most days, assisting both certified divers and students and learning how to become a certified assistant. You will be expected to come to the dive center 6 days a week with hours from 7.00am until 3pm or 10.30am until 5pm. Days can vary, sometimes finishing earlier than that, other days later, depending on courses and trips. It is always a fun day and there is plenty of time to hit the beach, surf or take part in other activities in the area too.
There are a couple of different focuses for your internship depending on your interests, have a look at some examples below.
