GoBLUE Divemaster Internship

We all recognize that the oceans are not only home to the things that we love but are essential ecosystems for our Blue planet's survival. With this in mind and believing that conservation must start with education, our team at GoPro Anthony’s Key have reinvented our Dive Master Internship to include programs like Shark conservation, Coral restoration, and Lionfish hunting.

 

Working with one of our PADI Staff Instructors who will act as your mentor, you will help on the courses they teach and the dives they lead to learning from them firsthand how to be a 5 Star PADI professional. Using this system they can pass on years of experience that just cannot be learned from books, and by utilizing the huge variety of customers we have at the resort, we can guarantee you that you cannot get a better and more varied selection of courses to work on.

 

Our DM internship program is run by PADI Master Instructor Diana Miller and with her team of PADI Staff Instructors and two in-house PADI Course Directors, the level of experience we have to offer cannot be beaten and you will be trained to the highest level.

 

What does the program include?
