Program Overview

Program Description:

Teach others to experience the joy you find spending time underneath the ocean waves. Spend your summer on a tropical island, exploring its beaches and coves as well as yourself to see where your passion for scuba diving can lead you. Gain the skills needed to complete PADI’s Instructor Development Course with confidence. This in turn will prepare you for the Instructor Examination needed to become a PADI OWSI. Spend time in the warm waters of St. Martin, putting your knowledge of PADI teaching philosophy to the test as you travel to impressive dive spots off the coast and prepare presentations that will benefit novice divers and Divemasters alike.


By perfecting your dive skills in the French side of St. Martin, you will be poised to complete dive training demonstrations and the written exam you have been preparing for ever since your first Broadreach dive. Let your excitement take you to the next level and learn to teach. Maybe one day, you can be that person who instills a love of curiosity and the sea in a young diver, just like an instructor once influenced you.

Setting Description:
Saint Martin will be your island home for this adventure. Anse Marcel, a picture perfect beach on the French side of the island, will be your classroom. The white sand beaches give way to bright blue waters, perfect for relaxing in after an intense day of open water dive drills. Cross the border and enter Dutch territory on the other half of this small island. Set sail and visit Creole Rock, an impressive formation off the coast, known for it’s rich diving potential. Practice shallow water dive skills as you keep watch for friendly dolphins and swooping pelicans. This idyllic island contains every aspect of Caribbean life to inspire you during this summer of adventure and learning.
