As many of us sit at home, still working our way through lockdown, we are dreaming. What adventures may lie ahead? And we have plenty of time to dream at this moment.

Costa Rica has fared relatively well in the global scheme of things especially with its response to the lockdown. Our beaches and jungles are slowly opening back up and our ocean is always there waiting…

So to entice you would be travelers back to our amazing paradise, we have put together some additional great offers in our already awesome packages. Not only to prepare you for your career in scuba, but to also share with you our love of the ocean and all that is brings to us.

PADI ECO Divemaster now with Coral Restoration certification

Our already amazing ECO divemaster program is the only dedicated ECO Divemaster program in Central America. What makes it awesome? It teaches you about the ocean and has integrated into it unique certifications around marine conservation and research. With the work that we do alongside our non-profit Marine Conservation Costa Rica, we thought we would get together and add some additional fun and giving back. With anyone signed up before the end of 2020, you will receive the PADI Coral restoration certification with your ECO Divemaster course. This will allow you to work and help with the research part of our coral nurseries!

PADI Divemaster with Resort training module

Your PADI Divemaster is your first step onto the dive professional ladder. With this certification you can work in the dive industry as a guide and instructors assistant. Truthfully though, it’s very tough to get a foot in the door. Already here at Go Pro we include additional specialty certifications with our programs but what more do you need. How about a complete module dedicated to resort operations? Yes, thats what we are including, out dive resort operations training which covers many aspects of behind the scenes work. It gives you a much better insight into the workings of a dive center so when it comes to working, you are better prepared.

For all of our budding instructor candidates we are keeping our well rounded education program going, with your 5 dive instructor specialties included. We have the largest selection of continuing education programs in Costa Rica and they cover all aspects of scuba diving. Whether it is marine conservation or technical diving, we have the specialty instructor program for you. Following on from your PADI IDC, this gives you a good outline to bring to your teaching.

We still have our other additional workshops included and will be adding extras centered around the marine environment. As a scuba diving professional you are an underwater ambassador. You must bring aspects of marine conservation into all of your training. We assist with this, covering it in training and workshops. To fire your passion even more we are including an introduction to our coral restoration project run with our partner non-profit. A chance to see real studies in action.

If you stay and complete a short internship with us following your program, you will also receive additional resort training and equipment servicing workshops.

So, what are you waiting for?

All of these great offers are available from now until the end of the year. Don’t forget we also have our internship discount available if you want to spend additional time in the wonderful waters of Costa Rica! Stop dreaming and start planning now!
