Our Level 4 dive master is the first professional level: Enjoy your passion while working!
Scuba divers look up to dive masters because they are leaders who mentor and motivate others. As a dive master, you not only get to dive a lot, but also experience the joy of seeing others have as much fun diving as you do.
The dive master trainee will learn to assist instructors on every course (Try dives, level 1 open water, level 2 advanced, level 3 rescue, Speciality diver, diving for kids, and even snorkelling tours), how to lead others, and supervise diving activities.
Working closely with an instructor, you’ll fine-tune your dive skills, like perfecting the effortless hover, and refine your rescue skills so you anticipate and easily solve common problems. You’ll gain dive knowledge, management and supervision abilities so you become a role model to divers everywhere.
Most of our dive master program will be on real situations, with real students, real boat trips, and the dive master trainee will decide when he wishes to assist, according to his own schedule. He has up to a year to complete the whole program and assessments, but if he prefers doing an every day training he can obtain his certification within 2 to 3 weeks.

  • Be at least 18-year-old
  • Have logged at least 40 dives (60 on the day of the certification)

There is lots of coral and algaes where our favourite animal likes to hide: The sea horse.
It is also very common to see octopus, lion fish, sea stars, sea urchins, nudi branchs, small rays, crabs, cray fish, prawns, schools of fish like herrings or yellow tails, butterfly fish, cuttle fish.
