Tanzania's coast is home to some of the most spectacular diving in the world. The crystal clear waters host a wealth of marine habitats and wildlife, making this a perfect location to scuba dive and explore this pristine and magical underwater world.
The PADI Divemaster course is the first rating on the PADI professional ladder and the first qualification that makes you employable as a dive professional in the industry. PADI Divemasters supervise recreational diving activities and act as assistants to PADI Instructors conducting diver training. This internship offers you the perfect opportunity to enhance your current dive experience and enter the world of professional diving.
You will work with dive instructors in real life scenarios with our Mafia Island research staff and volunteers who are working in line with the Mafia Island Marine Park conservation efforts. This project is a combination of learning dive theory in the classroom and confined water, and open water diver training to transform you into a role-model dive professional. You will also contribute to the vital marine research and conservation projects to provide local communities and government bodies with the information they need to sustainably manage this priceless marine ecosystem preserving it for future generations.
Mafia Island is an awesome place to learn to become a Divemaster with great diving and a busy tourist industry.
