Your Divemaster course will consist of dive theory, workshops & practical applications. You will have a dedicated experienced instructor to work with you and mentor you throughout your training.

Usually your Divemaster course will take a minimum of 3 weeks to complete, but a 2 week intensive option is possible if you already meet all of the above prerequisites. Total duration will depend on your current certification level, number of logged dives and comfort level in the water - we are happy to tailor a dive package for you which will give you all the necessary experience and confidence in the water to become a diving professional. Additional costs may apply - contact us to find out more!
