Professional Level Scuba Training - Divemaster & Assistant Instructor

We believe in training dive professionals for the real world. The scuba industry demands highly trained individuals with excellent people skills who can handle logistics, safely supervise certified divers, and make the sport of diving a fun activity for all skill levels. Our Divemaster and Assistant Instructor courses are sanctioned by the Professional Association of Diving Instructors and are conducted in Monterey. The local area is physically demanding with typical ocean temperatures of 50 deg F and 15 - 25 feet of underwater visibiity. Drysuits are common with the locals but not necessary. Open water students-in-training typically dive in 7mm rental wetsuits. Hoods, booties and gloves are essential along with the extra lead required to sink it all. If you are considering a career in diving, Monterey will challenge you, hone your skills, and thoroughly prepare you for this exciting and demanding industry.
