4 Weeks – 4 Months

Have you already tried Diving or already possess a Dive qualification?

Do you love to explore the underwater world?

Why not turn it into the perfect way to work and travel the world?

Jumping into the world of Divemaster training (no pun intended!), you’ll find yourself based on the island paradise of Koh Tao, one of the Eastern Thai Islands. This place is a Mecca for Diving, with a great variety of Dive sites and marine life, including the infamous Whale Sharks.

Your Divemaster training will prepare you for life as a Dive professional, you’ll clock up a whole heap of Dives and learn how to transfer your passion into a job, which could see you bouncing around the globe and living in some truly beautiful places.

“Becoming a Divemaster has not only improved my diving but it’s opened up a great way to travel and work”
Aaron, UK

Taking in Dive specialties like night dives, deep dives and marine identification, you’ll leave Koh Tao with a worlds worth of knowledge and a solid amount of Dive experience… That is of course if you ever leave Koh Tao!

Our professional team of Divers can qualify you for either SSI or PADI Divemaster (they’re same same but different!) and will take you through all the modules to solidify your confidence, teaching techniques and Dive skills, leaving not only an all round better Diver but with a world recognised qualification which is your first step into professional Diving.

The island itself is a work hard, play hard place, as a backpacker haven, it’s not short of some great nightlife. So if you have a day off, you can join the pub crawl, let curiosity lead you to the ladyboy cabaret or simply kick back in one of the beach bars with an ice cold Chang and good company.

One of the best parts of this experience is that you can take your time finishing it up.

Only got 6 weeks, no worries!

Got a few months? Perfect, gain even more Dive experience and have a bit more room for some days off!

How long you want to take is pretty much down to you!

As a worldwide qualification, it will allow you to work as a professional Diver all over the globe, you can’t really ask for more than that!
