Not all roads that lead to becoming a Divemaster follow the same map. While the PADI Divemaster program is a straightforward training path, blending academics with simulations, the Divemaster Intern Program is unique in that you work with actual students. Phase I takes place on St. Martin and St. Barts. Candidates live on support boats, undergoing hard training and dive skill demonstration. Learn dive theory, attend navigation and rescue skill workshops, and assist instructors.
Time to put it all together out in the real world, with real students. Candidates shift to Broadreach program boats where they take on a support, yet leadership-focused role. Assist the resident scuba instructor and sailing skipper with all aspects of the program. As you sail to St. Kitts, Nevis, Statia and Saba, you discover multiple opportunities to lead and inspire a group of eager teens. You are rewarded when one of them demonstrates a skill learned from watching you.
“Limited group size was probably the single most significant factor that made this experience personalized.” — Mary Faytis, Sanibel Island, FL
This journey is not just about mastering your own dive skills and earning a Divemaster certification. It’s also about leading others to great achievements in their lives too. Nothing better encapsulates the essence of being a Broadreach staff member than the Divemaster Intern Program.
