“I couldn’t have asked for a more beautiful place to complete my divemaster training!

– Sarah, UK

Your base for your 4 weeks of divemaster training is the stunning island of Fulidhoo in the Vaavu Atoll, based in the world famous Maldives – where palm trees line the beach and crystal clear waters lap onto the sand.

And although accommodation isn’t included in the course we can certainly help you pick the right base on the island – check out the info tab for more details on this.

You’ll get to experience some incredible dive sites – drifting in the current across colourful coral gardens, cruising alongside curious white tip reef sharks, through huge schools or fish and even get to experience the adrenaline fuelled night dive with the local nurse sharks – which is something you will never forget!

By the end of your divemaster course in the Maldives you’ll be a confident and competent dive master – ready to embrace the world of professional diving and pass on your stoke to other beginning their journey into the big blue.

And if you’d like to take a bit more time completing your Divemaster training in the Maldives this course can be extended to 8 weeks giving you more time to dive, gain on the job experience, chill out and enjoy paradise – just contact us for more details on visa options.
