Program Overview

Program Description:

Become Divemaster certified and a PADI Open Water Scuba Instructor this summer. Start on a catamaran, sailing the blue waters of the Caribbean and diving off the deck as you earn Divemaster skills such as diver rescue and various open water scenarios. Now that you have perfected these abilities yourself, learn to teach them to others. Go ashore to work towards Open Water Scuba Instructor certification by practicing what you‘ve learned and training at a development facility and in exciting new dive locations.


Gain a different perspective of your surroundings as you take a break from all this training and explore seaside towns, an uninhabited island and white sand beaches. If you dream of spending your 9 to 5 career in a deep blue office with sea turtles and barracuda as office mates, this training will prepare you for all you need to know. Earn the certification and life skills needed to be a dive professional, and then explore the different paths you can take as a certified scuba instructor..

Setting Description:
St. Barts is the perfect vacation, an exciting island full of French cuisine and beautiful beaches. It is also perfect for learning, especially underneath the gentle waves. The Leeward Islands are the ideal setting for various dive certification courses because of its diverse marine ecosystems and inspirational views. Watch the sunrise aboard a catamaran and then dive below to explore towering pinnacles and friendly sea creatures.
