Become a Pro Scuba Diver
Our Divemaster Internship Program is for non-professional divers who want to pursue a career in the recreational scuba diving industry.
The program will qualify you, at the end of the season, as a PADI Divemaster – the first professional level qualification. Our program works like this: in exchange for working for us for the summer season, our interns get their dive education – all the way up to PADI Divemaster – for free.
Duties of a Divemaster intern include all aspects of the dive industry from assisting on the dive boat with courses and guided dives, filling and carrying scuba tanks, servicing equipment, and equipping divers, to working in the dive shop in sales or office duties. As their education progresses, interns take on duties such as leading groups of qualified divers and assisting instructors with courses.
Our interns gain, in addition to many dives by the end of the season, a valuable insight into this industry and experience in dealing with customers, including qualified divers, course students, and beginners. We ensure that with our program, you will definitely become a pro scuba diver, ready to work anywhere in the world as a professional diver.
The learning curve for the courses is quite steep and there’s quite a lot of theory to study in addition to the day-to-day job, so self-motivation is essential. In addition to diving experience, desirable – though not essential – attributes of interns are a full driving license, spoken European languages, media, design and computer skills, and sales/retail skills.
You should know from the start that the hours in this industry are long and the work is sometimes hard, but if you have a passion for scuba diving and working with people, the rewards are immeasurable. If your goal is a career in the recreational scuba diving industry, this internship will teach you everything you need to know and more.
While we pay for interns’ accommodation and food, they need to pay their own travel costs to Greece.
Also, you can complete all the required studying in the comfort of your own house and then just have fun diving once you’ll arrive on the island. Click the following link to download the necessary materials to apply for the course, here.

To apply, please send a short CV with a recent photo (showing any easily visible tattoos) and references, along with a covering letter describing why you want to become a PADI Divemaster and take part in this adventure.
