Gain experience for your scuba career
Here at Go Pro Costa Rica we offer a comprehensive PADI Divemaster internship and a short Instructor internship. Designed to prepare you for a career in scuba diving, we offer additional training during our internships to ensure you have the the best experience possible.
For the Divemaster program we extend your training depending on the dive numbers that you have so you can get more experience in the water. We give you the chance to gain real world experience.
For the Instructor program, for a short period of time after completing your Instructor exam you can team teach alongside our instructors. You can get some certifications under your belt and prepare yourself for continuing your scuba teaching career. For more infomation on the IDC internship please contact us directly.
Please note, the Divemaster internship 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.
What is included in the Divemaster internship?

Free self reliant dive training

How will I spend my days?
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.
