PADI Divemaster Information Evening

Become a PADI Dive Master!
A Divemaster is primarily a “dive leader”, who leads and is responsible for the safety of other certified divers.  They organise groups, logistics, and manage any issues that might occur. Dive Masters are responsible for the planning, dive briefings, rental gear allocation, boat coordination as well as underwater activities.  PADI Divemasters are also able to assist Instructors with courses, and run ReActivate & Skin Diver programs.

Dive Like A Pro! 65% percent of Divemasters wanted to increase their dive knowledge and skill set.
