PADI Dive Master

The Divemaster course is where your professional level of training begins. During the program you will work closely with our instructors, assisting with student divers and developing your leadership abilities.

Our course covers all aspects of being a dive pro from understanding the physiology and physics of diving, to using a SMB and mapping a dive site. You will gain valuable experience and dive skills, improve your confidence and expand your dive theory.

Our Divemaster Program is very flexible, allowing you to start your training when convenient and extend your training to maximize your learning experience. The course takes an average of 2 months to accomplish.

Doing your divemasters in Tofo’s challenging waters will make you, not just a divemaster, it’ll make you a GREAT divemaster.
