Our resorts are based on tropical islands – Bunaken Island, Lembeh Island and Nusa Lembongan – and you will have a full Indo island hopping experience!
You will be interacting with the local staff to get what you need (eg tanks loaded on boats), learning some of the language, helping to deal with guest and courses, doing lots of diving, and doing your PADI courses to a very high & professional level. Its great to do the Divemaster course with us, but be warned as you will definitely be spoilt – there is no other diving like this in the world!
Unlike your previous courses, the Divemaster course relies on mentoring and you will develop a strong mentor-type relationship with your instructor. This is why all our Instructors that teach our PADI Divemaster Internships have already taught many Divemaster courses, and therefore have the necessary experience to give you a very high quality course.
We do not use our Divemaster candidates as cheap labour as they do in some other shops, where you work in the dive shop and do the minimum number of dives. One of our strengths is the number of entry-level and advanced courses that we run, and we regularly use our Divemaster candidates on these where possible.
We even try and use our Divemaster candidates when possible to help our guides with the guests so that you can get some experience with looking after certified guests underwater as well as on the land. Our benefit is that we can provide a better level of service for our diving customers.

PADI Divemaster Course and Learning Online
The PADI Divemaster course is the first professional level within the PADI System of diver education and allows you to work as a training assistant on PADI courses and programs, supervise certified divers during pleasure diving experiences, and conduct some PADI programs independently. Becoming a PADI Divemaster consists of the following segments: knowledge development, practical application and the Divemaster final exam. The online portion of the course, PADI Divemaster Online, covers nine topics that prepare you for the practical sessions needed to complete the Divemaster course. Through PADI’s eLearning® system and practical segments of the Divemaster course, you become well prepared to work as a PADI Divemaster.
Prior to enrolling in PADI Divemaster Online, you must be at least 18 years old, have a current medical attesting to your diving fitness signed by a physician within the previous 12 months, and be a certified PADI Advanced Open Water Diver and PADI Rescue or hold qualifying certifications from another dive training organization. You must also have completed a Emergency First Response (EFR) Primary and Secondary Care course (or other sanctioned first aid and CPR course) within the past 24 months and be able to prove that you have completed at least 40 dives (60 before being able to complete the Divemaster course with experience of deep dives, night dives and underwater navigation). If you have any questions as to whether you meet the necessary prerequisites, please email us direct.
After enrolling, PADI’s eLearning system presents you with interactive presentations that include videos, audio, graphics and reading. Short quizzes let you gauge your progress and review and correct anything you might happen to miss. This lets you move through the program efficiently and at your own pace.
The eLearning portion of the course is $200 (US) nonrefundable. This is an additional cost to the price of the course.
Other costs – There is a separate application fee due to PADI that needs to be submitted with the Divemaster application once the course is successfully completed.
Materials – The PADI Divemaster Online program will provide you with perpetual access to an ebook version of the PADI Divemaster manual, a required material. However, to complete the PADI Divemaster course, you also need a current PADI Instructor Manual, both the Table RDP and eRDPML, The Encyclopedia of Recreational Diving, and a set of the PADI Divemaster slates. These will be provided by us as part of your Divemaster Course.
Please contact us to discuss total courses costs, equipment, materials and logistical requirements.
Once you successfully complete Divemaster Online, you will need to successfully complete several practical assessments, workshops and other assignments with us in Bunaken or Lembeh. You will also need to complete the Divemaster Final Exam as well as meet the professionalism criteria.
The eLearning segment of the course is available for one year from the time of course registration. Though you must finish the online portion of the course within that time frame, you will have perpetual access to an online version of the PADI Divemaster manual.
Once you finish the eLearning portion of the course, your dive center is notified that you have completed it and that you are ready for the practical phase of the Divemaster course. At the end of the eLearning program, you can print out your eRecord and bring a copy of it with you when you visit us on Bunaken or Lembeh.
