Entering the world of professional Diving is an exciting prospect for anyone who loves the ocean and becoming a qualified PADI Divemaster is the first step into it.

Based in the beach lovers Mecca of Byron Bay, this experience provides everything you need to get started in the world of Scuba Diving, all provided by a fully certified, PADI Dive Centre run by amazing Divers with a whole heap of experience the world over.

With accommodation, equipment hire, all course materials and even return airport transfers, you really can just kick back knowing you are well on your way to living the dream and turning the ocean into your office.

Throughout the Dive modules, you’ll be taught everything from the very basics of forming your Open Water certification, advanced certification, equipment maintenance and first aid right through to teaching techniques and PADI Dive specialities.

With a healthy mix of pool training, classroom sessions and, of course, open water dives, you’ll clock up a solid amount of time underwater, solidify your dive skills and gain the knowledge and confidence needed to pass on your Dive stoke to the next generation of SCUBA Divers.

Of course, that all adds up to an amazing CV primed to open up career paths across the world, from the warm waters of Thailand to the pristine reefs of Australia.

Our Byron base offers the best of all worlds, with custom made Dive facilities including multiple classrooms, wet rooms and a spacious training pool.

But, of course, the real fun is to be had at the infamous Julian Rocks, just a 5 minute boat ride from the sandy beaches of the Bay.

This immaculate Dive site has been voted amongst the top 10 Dive sites in Australia, boasts an ocean temperature of between 20-27 degrees year round and a whole heap of epic marine life.

Grey nurse shark season (May – November) is a massive highlight but throughout the year this marine reserve is home to Manta Rays, Leopard Sharks, Turtles, Wobbegong Sharks, Bull Rays and of course a beautiful array of corals and marine life on a smaller scale!

Byron Bay itself offers some great non-dive activities too. Whether you head up to the lighthouse for a sunset, kayak around the many beaches and bays or try your hand at Surfing some of the amazing surf spots this area is also famous for, it has something for everyone.

So get stuck into the world of Diving, gain a world recognised qualification, learn in an amazing location and get stoked for the amazing travel and working opportunities it could open up for you. We won’t lie, getting there will sometimes be hard work (the Practical Rescue course modules are a beast!) but all that hard work will be quickly paid off when your underwater surrounded by shoals of fish in your new ‘office’.
