We’ve designed our Divemaster programme to give you the maximum benefit from your time with us.
The PADI course covers 3 broad areas:
- Knowledge Development
- Practical Application
From the get-go we want you to become part of the team and fabric of Reef Gliders, and by completing your Knowledge Development and Practical Workshops early on, you'll have the foundations needed to be a Divemaster. Then we'll put your skills into practice as you start to assist our full-time instructors with recreational courses and guiding our divers on the reef. No-one's perfect from the start, which is why we’ll teach you how to approach everything, highlight your strengths and identify the areas for improvement. It’s a big learning curve and we’re here to take you through it. By the end of your course you’ll not only be a much more advanced diver, you’ll have the ability and foundations to build a great career in the industry.
What you need to begin:
- 18 years old
- Certified PADI Advanced Open Water Diver (or equivalent from another agency)
- Certified PADI Rescue Diver (or equivalent from another agency).
- Completed 40 scuba dives
- Completed EFR Primary and Secondary Care training within 24 months.
- Medically evaluated and cleared for diving
by a physician within 12 months
To complete the course:
- You'll need at least 60 dives (but you'll probably end up with many more).
- You will have completed all the required exams, workshops and assessments.
- You'll need night dive experience, which is a great excuse to jump on one of our many night dives.
- To complete the legendary snorkel test! (Ok, technically that's optional)
Whenever suits you. We can be flexible with the Divemaster Course and tailor it to your needs. You can get started with the elearning as soon as you book.
We include all the main pieces of gear, particularly the tricky ones to travel with such as BCD, Fins, Regulator etc.
We require you to have your own: Mask/Snorkel, SMB/Reel and Dive Computer.
We highly recommend all our professional candidates to have their own gear if possible.
When you land in Honduras most nationalities are eligible for a free 3 month tourist visa which can be extended to 4 months when your here on Roatan.
If you arrive overland your tourist visa is usually for 1 month only.
We think 6 weeks is ideal, however if you're short on time 4 weeks is sufficient. Likewise if you want to dive more and stay longer then no problem!
Yes, Roatan has lots of options for people wishing to stay for a longer period. We can use our local knowledge and contacts to help find a suitable place. It's a lot easier to find somewhere appropriate when you're here on the island, as most advertised places online are aimed at the short-term traveler. We do not include accommodation with our courses.
