    [SIZE=-1][SIZE=-1]Get your Divemaster course for free in exchange for divemastering for us. It is also a program designed for Non-Divers who like to go from the beginner course all the way to the professional level of Divemaster.

Would you like to spend a good measure of time in a tropical environment? We are looking for divers and non-divers who would like to get a diving education up to Divemaster.

    We are accepting people from beginning of October till end of February who would like to continue their diving education, become a professional and take the opportunity to gain valuable real world experience.

    A Divemaster candidate will be thoroughly familiarized with customer service, dive planning, in water supervision, equipment maintenance and servicing and many more aspects of being a pro. This experience along with the fact that the intern will have worked as a Divemaster allows us to issue a job reference to successful candidates.

    The offered program will also ensure experience is gained with PADI diving courses by assisting our instructors (planning, conducting and course standards). Therefore, if after the program the aim is to become a diving instructor the preparation is already done! At the end of the program a candidate will have at least 100 – 120 dives.

    Living on one of the most beautiful and famous islands in the world – enjoying the culture and living style of the Thai society in a tropical environment and at the same time experience a completely new world – the incredible variety of the aquatic realm of the Andaman sea. Many internship candidates have by the end of the program seen almost all famous things there are to encounter for divers – from whale sharks, manta rays, various other sharks and turtles to ghost pipe fishes, seahorses and different nudibranchs – not to mention the typical lion fish, scorpion fish and different kind of moray eels.

Diving being a very social activity – just the team you learn and work with provide an unforgettable time in terms of team work, camaraderie and shared experiences.

    I saw your annoucement in Scubaboard for a DM Internship, and I was very interested. I'm from Brazil, and fluent in Portuguese, Spanish and English. I have a PADI Divemaster certification and about 400 logged dives. I have dived in many places like Egypt, Bonaire, Curacao, Bahamas, Brazil, USA, Greece, Portugal and in some grat liveaboards, always as a customer. Worked as a dentist my whole life and now I'd like to make scuba as my way of living.
    If you could give some more information on how the internship works I'd appreciate! Thank you!
    Sunny regards,
