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 17-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.

- Minimum age 18 years

Great staff, great food and great dive sites. Did 9 dives in 3 days so they were super busy and we thoroughly enjoyed all of it. A company that cares and it shows so highly recommended!

Cannot recommend this enough! It was such an amazing experience all over. The dive sites were not crowded at all so we could all see the amazing wildlife. Four dives a day during a 3 days, 2 nights-trip was really worth it - amazing to...
