Here, the true odyssey ignites—a captivating three-week transformational journey that molds you into a dive professional, a Dive Master. The adventure of a lifetime unfolds, and you stand poised at the threshold of mastery.

Embark on the Marine Conservation Divemaster Program: A Pathway to Excellence

Our summer program starts on the first Monday of May each year and moves forward on a rolling four-week basis. Each four week period starts with a “Training Week”, where we’ll teach you how to dive or advance your existing dive qualifications. Following this we’ll have three “Project Weeks” working on our marine conservation projects, before we reset and start again.

The Marine Conservation Divemaster program beckons to those intrepid souls who crave to venture further into the depths of possibility. Irrespective of whether you possess a fragment of diving experience or none at all, a tailored route awaits you.

Our program is ingeniously modular and grants you the power to seamlessly drop in at the next optimal spot for you, based on your level of scuba diving certification and diving experience. To become a Marine Conservation Divemaster you will need to have the following prerequisites:
+ Hold PADI/SSI Open Water Diver Certification
+ Hold PADI/SSI Advanced Adventure Diver Certification
+ Hold PADI/SSI Stress & Rescue Diver Certification
+ Have completed within the last 24 months a recognised Emergency First Responder training course, which includes CPR, AED use and secondary care first aid.
+ Have logged at least 40 scuba dives too.

If you have No Diving Experience fear not! Over an 8-week period we can start you from the very beginning and provide you with all of the training and experience you need to become a Marine Conservation Divemaster

The cost of the Marine Conservation Divemaster program hinges on your current diving certification level and the number of dives you have logged. If you hold the level of a Rescue Diver and have experienced more than 40 dives, we can deliver the core Divemaster training in as little as 3-weeks from only US$2,625.

For those venturing in as novices, unacquainted with the depths, our extended eight-week program will be the one for you, providing you with the training and experience you will need to start to work in the scuba diving or conservation industry from only US$8,040.

Due to the modular nature of the program and its very flexible options, the best advice would be to connect with one of our Program Staff and we will be able to create the best options for you.

The below courses are optional, additional training you can elect to take. Please let us know, as part of your application, if there are any additional training courses that interest you.
