Becoming a PADI Divemaster is a dream for many divers. Being a professional diver and making a living from your passion is the ideal lifestyle for many divers around the world. We have developed a 1-4 month Divemaster internship in Bali - Nusa Penida in order to and prepare you for the professional world of diving.
Completing the PADI Divemaster training is easy, but becoming a good Divemaster with all the qualities that dive centers around the world want to employ is quite another thing. This is our goal, to train you not only to pass the Divemaster exam or to tick the boxes of the exercises, but to really develop all of qualifications required to excel as a professional Divemaster. Becoming a Divemaster is not only about safely guiding divers on vacation; the job of a Divemaster requires much more than that! The Divemaster is essential to ensure the success of diving trips and provide divers with a good experience. It is thanks to the Divemaster’s knowledge, logistical support, presence and above all customer service, that makes a safe, unique and memorable dive trip.
Moreover, we have always trained our PADI Divemaster candidates as if they might later become a diving instructor. Each of our students in PADI Divemaster training in Nusa Penida will be an integral part of our team and will participate in the life of the dive center, including working with students and instructors.

Nusa Penida Divemaster Internship"
I have not yet completed the prerequisite courses to start my Divemaster, is this a problem?
What if I don’t have 40 logged dives?
I do not have the EFR Primary and Secondary Care Training. What should I do?
Can you help me to sign up for dive insurance?
Rental equipment (mask, snorkel, fins, wetsuit, BCD and regulator) is included for the first month of your course. (You may find, however, that you are more comfortable in your training with your own wetsuit, fins, mask and snorkel.) After the first month, we offer a reduced rental rate for scuba equipment if you do not yet have your own.
In addition, as a dive professional, certain equipment is mandatory such as the surface marker buoy (SMB), a whistle, a dive knife, a compass, and most importantly, a dive computer. As a future professional we ask our Divemaster candidates to have these items. Bali Aqua offers all equipment for sale at a special Divemaster Candidate rate. Alternatively, we are happy to help you buy your gear in Bali.
While learning your future profession in an idyllic setting with a relaxed and professional atmosphere, Divemaster candidates are expected to act as members of the team. You will be integrated into the Bali Aqua team and will be expected to assist our Divemasters and Instructors.
Some of your duties will include: welcoming the students and divers, preparing equipment, and assisting clients with PADI paperwork. Divemaster candidates also answer questions and brief divers on the functions of the dive center.
During courses and recreational dives, you will assist divers under the supervision of your instructor. You will be asked to prepare safety equipment, the dive boat roll call, conduct boat briefings for all divers.
After diving, you will be asked to help with cleaning and organizing dive equipment and logging dives with clients.
There are many other things that you will learn to do all of which will prepare you for a future as a dive pro. Fortunately, when surrounded by the ocean and many smiling faces, it won’t feel like work!
The Divemaster course can range from very intense to really relaxed. It all depends on how long you spend completing your training. While, according to PADI, you can complete your course in two weeks, at Bali Aqua, we believe the minimum time frame is four weeks. However, ideally, we recommend at least two months in Nusa Penida… and the longer you spend in training, the more diving experience you will gain to start your professional diving career.
During your PADI Divemaster course in Nusa Penida, you will develop a very different relationship with your instructor than that of your prior dive courses. Your instructor will function as your guide, trainer, and even advisor for your future career in scuba diving. It is very common to develop a bond with your mentor that lasts for years after you complete your Divemaster certification.
The PADI Divemaster Course Consists of Four Sections:
The course begins with a general orientation to cover how the training will be structured. After orientation, the course will be customized based on you and the current environment and schedule.
Divemaster theory is divided into nine topics. You will complete these through independent study of the Divemaster Manual, with PADI videos, and the Encyclopedia of Recreational Diving. Of course, your instructor will help you along the way to ensure you are mastering all information shared and will complement the manual with local information and examples from his or her experience. Upon completion you will take two theory exams.
The 9 Chapters of PADI Divemaster Training:
During your PADI Divemaster training in Nusa Penida, you will master 5 skills essential to becoming a PADI professional.
