The first step in your professional journey begins at Divemaster level. If you want to be there as people begin their Discover Scuba Diving experience for the first time or lead them through your favorite underwater exploration, this rating is for you. The stress of teaching an entire group belongs to the Open Water Scuba Diver Instructor, but as a Divemaster, you get to know all of the students, revel in the successes and help them through their struggles. As a PADI Divemaster, you can manage divers on a dive boat, lead divers at a resort, assist instructors, teach diving refreshers and even introduce non-divers to the underwater world during a Discover Scuba Diving course!


Unlike most courses, the course’s schedule is rather flexible. In fact, other than a few set dates, you are the person that determines how long the course takes. Depending upon your schedule and availability, this course typically takes between 2 months and one year to complete.  


The price for the full, semi-private course is $850. The price covers course instruction, materials (crew pak, instructor manual w/binder, slates, Divemaster manual, Diving Knowledge workbook, and eRDPML), and pool time. Any additional boat tickets, rental gear, and Divemaster Application fees are not included.
