Is he including passes to the Hard Rock casino, a bottle of scotch, and a all expense paid night at the Cheetah in Pompano?

Well, there may be a happy ending at the end of the class. He is in Palm Beach and he is focused exclusively on wealthy clientele.

A scuba diving instructor's salary is not easy to explain as it depends on many factors. Some instructors earn almost nothing, some make an average salary and others have a great income!

Interesting video! Thanks for sharing! If anybody is interested in data... I conducted a survey on dive instructors salaries, how much they invested to become an instructor, and a few other things, in collaboration with InDepth magazine:

Initial results, here:

The Economics of Being a Recreational Scuba Diving Instructor: Survey Results

There is a lot more we can learn from the survey results, once I find the time to crunch some numbers...

Cheers!

Brilliant summary of insightful responses to the open-ended questions at the end.

This should be a landmark reference and required reading for those considering entering the industry.
