PADI Divemaster

Take the first step in your dive career and become a PADI Divemaster. Working closely with a Mentor Instructor, you'll expand your dive knowledge and hone your skills as you become a dive professional. PADI Divemaster training develops your leadership abilities by training you to supervise dive activities and assist Instructors with student divers.


What can PADI Divemasters do?

  • Work at local dive centers, on live-aboard dive boats, yachts and at exotic resort locations

  • Assist PADI Instructors with students in training

  • Lead PADI Scuba Divers on guided dive tours

  • Teach and certify PADI Skin Divers

  • Teach PADI Discover Snorkeling programs

  • Conduct PADI Scuba Review programs for certified divers

  • Lead certified divers on Discover Local Diving experiences

  • Teach Emergency First Response programs after successful completion of an Emergency First Response Instructor course.

What do I need to start?

  • PADI Advanced Open Water Diver

  • PADI Rescue Diver certification

  • A current Emergency First Response certification

  • Medical clearance signed by a physician

  • 40 logged dives

  • 18 years old

What will I do?

  • Learn dive leadership through classroom and independent study sessions

  • Complete water skills and stamina exercises in confined and open water

  • Practical application exercises to test organizational and problem solving abilities

  • Assessment assisting with courses of all levels and supervising certified divers

  • For a finale, we may turn over a Splash Day to you, either collectively or individually to run. This is not a part of the PADI course requirement but think it is a good challenge and a great way to finish your Divemaster course with Splash.

How long will it take?

  • The Divemaster course can take quite a while to do in Hong Kong as many people can only commit to weekends and the odd evening. At Splash we feel that professional level training should not be hurried. A Divemaster program with Splash Hong Kong would probably take at least 2 months.

The cost for this course is HK$8,800, excluding certification and course materials.
