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

One of the best experiences of my life

One of the best experiences of my life!!!I did the 5 day open water course and liveaboard trip. The instructor, Kevin was fantastic. Knowledge and safety presented with a sense of humour. Small class of 5 new divers was the perfect size and we all became great friends.The boat was very well equipped, the food was good, and the crew were amazing. And most importantly the diving was incredible.So well organised and enjoyable.

My friend and I went SCUBA diving, but I lobster and never flounder.

Just came back from a 3 day / 2 night trip to finish my open water scuba certification! Except for the weather, everything was excellent. Special shout outs to my instructor Lisa who made me feel comfortable and safe in the choppy water and to Kevin who was hilarious and who kept the group in good spirits during briefings and announcements. Would highly recommend!

Must have this life changing experience! Above and beyond my expectations ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

My friends and I did a 4 days e-learning open water course with 3 days 2 nights liveaboard. All the crews, instructors, divemasters were super professional, helpful and knowledgeable. Food was delicious, hot shower was fantastic. Special shout-out to our instructor Flo who made our learn to dive experience so enjoyable, she took good care of all students from the pool to the ocean and made sure we all grasped the skills required for diving. We are now certified adventure divers and are confident to apply what we’ve learned to dive in the future. It was a very pleasant and memorable experience, will definitely book dive trips again in the future with Pro dive! 100% recommended!!
