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.
Together with the Shark Legacy Project the Shark curriculum and dives were added to the Internship with the help of Shark Biologist Giacomo Palavicini a unique program evolved.From there Marine Biologist Jonathan Clarkin added in a in-depth Coral Lecture and now for 2015 4 deicated coral I.D Dives .
