becoming a certified padi divemaster

The PADI Divemaster Course is the first level of the PADI Professional rating. As a PADI Divemaster, you will hold the minimum rating for professional employment in the diving industry. Your qualification will allow you to supervise recreational diving activities (either boat or land-based), work as an instructional assistant on all PADI courses and is just one step away from a PADI Instructor rating.

Our 19-day course is a combination of theoretical classroom sessions along with practical application sessions, covering a variety of pool and open water PADI courses. Your course includes two, three-day liveaboard trips on board Pro Dive Cairns, where you will complete up to 20 dives (a mix of compulsory and recreational). 

Please Note: some medical conditions may prevent you diving and you will be required to complete a waiver and medical statement prior to the trip. If you have recently/continue to suffer from an illness or condition that may affect your dive fitness,  or currently taking any prescription medication, you will need to consult a doctor for a 'fit to dive' medical certificate. 

Compulsory Prerequisites 

  • PADI rescue diver certifications or equivalent
  • Dive medical
  • Minimum age 18 years
  • Minimum 40 logged dives (additional dives can be organised)
  • Current senior first aid certification completed in the last 24 months

It was awesome

My partner and I did a 3 day trip. We are both certified divers. We really enjoyed the 11 dives on beautiful and different dive spots at the Great Barrier Reef. The crew on the boat was awesome, made you feel home and very helpful. We hat a nice room and great food. In total we had a wonderful time

5 day open water course

Did my open water course with pro dive with Flo as my instructor. The whole course was excellent and made so much better by Flo who is very knowledgeable, calm and fun! The 5 day course with the liveaboard included is such good value for money and once you're certified you get to go off with your buddy and explore the dive sites yourself. I initially thought that would be daunting but the whole crew are very supportive and give you excellent briefings.Overall I would highly recommend

The experience of a lifetime

Booked the Open water/Adventure dive course. Spent 2 days in the dive centre learning in the pool and completing theory. Spent 3 days 2 nights on the reef. What an experience. Mike was our instructor in the pool and on our first five dives on the reef including 1 night dive. Excellent knowledge of diving and a brilliant instructor throughout. Calm, cool and collected. Reassured my gf when she was slightly panicking during a mask exercise. Calmed her down and she completed the task. Our other instructor was Kevin. Kevin completed the theory with us in the class room and instructed us on our last couple of dives which were a deep dive and an underwater navigational dive. Like Mike, he was relaxed and full of knowledge but also the funniest man on the reef. Had the entire boat laughing from start to finish. A great character. The staff on board were also fantastic. Marine made us delicious food at regular intervals to keep us full of energy for our action filled days. Special mention also to Matty, Courtney, Caro and Chris. Extremely nice people and provided a great atmosphere to learn to dive. Will 100% be back to dive again with Pro dive Cairns. An experience of a lifetime. Thank you and all the best, Cathal and Elaine.
