Knowledge Development – the PADI Divemaster manual covers topics such as risk management, customer perspectives and career opportunities within the dive industry.

There is a 400m swim, a 15 minute tread/float, an 800m snorkel swim and a 100m tired diver tow. This section also assesses your rescue skills with an unconscious diver scenario. Finally, you will be assessed on your ability to demonstrate the 24 basic dive skills. You will be given ample time to practice these during the course as Big Fish instructors pride themselves on creating Divemasters able to give Instructor-quality demonstrations.

Practical Application – A lot of time is given to this area of the course, where you will find yourself assisting instructors on a variety of dive courses, mapping a dive site, conducting an equipment exchange underwater with another diver and carrying out 2 PADI Divemaster conducted programmes

Divemaster Costs – As well as the Divemaster course fees payable to us there is also an application fee payable to PADI on completion of your course. You will also need to have your own set of PADI Divemaster manuals which you can buy yourself or we can help you buy them once you are here.
