A Thought , becoming a PADI Divemaster is often not enough to compete for the best Divemaster jobs. In a world where people are more and more concerned about the well-being of our oceans and coral reef ecosystems, more knowledge is needed about this pristine environment.
Since 2010 many of our internship students always wanted to improve their knowledge about marine life and marine biology. On the other hand, many of our PADI Divemaster candidates wished they would have learned more about the underwater world. So why donít we just combine those two aspects in one Unique Internship so we did.

So why Our program ?
From its inception in 2010 Our Eco-Divemaster Internships were designe to go beyond the standard courses offered by Training and Certifictaion agencies. The Dive Industry is crying out for quality knowkedgeable Dive Professionals. Unfortunately most courses leave the Candidate with still much to learn. So our PADI Course Director Gary Miller put together a program that filled the gaps and trained Candidates to a level of competence required to succeed in the Industry. By using the PADI Divemaster Course as a foundation we added an Internship format and then went 10 steps even further by adding in Lectures and Dives on Corals - Reef Fish and Creatures and Ultimately Sharks.
Shark Conservation : We'll include Shark Conservation lectures and a chance for at least 2 Shark dives during your Internship .
All Shark Dives are completed at Roatan's Famous "Cara a Cara Point" Dive site .
The bases of the Shark Conservation part of the Internship is to cover the aspects of what effects the sharks on the surface and underwater . Sharks are crucial to marine ecosystems.
The Shark program you will be participating will include observation, quantification and Id of different individuals of Caribbean Reef Sharks, if you have a digital UW camera you will be shown what aspect of the sharks you would take a photo of so you could use it as a way to ID a specie or individual you will also have a briefing on shark conservation .
