PADI Divemaster course in Phuket

Our PADI Divemaster course in Phuket is organised together with Sea Fun Divers Phuket. Sea Fun Divers is a PADI Career Development Center – the highest PADI dive center rating – and has 4 offices in Phuket. Sea Fun Divers is one of the few dive centers in Phuket that run their own dive center, equipment service center, boat and minivans.

Our main divecenter is located inside the luxurious “Le Meredien Resort” from where we have access to awesome training facilities and a private beach and house reef.

During your Divemaster training, you will get an opportunity to gain hands on experience in working with a busy dive center and retail shop. You will spend time with customers and staff and will be fully prepared to become a scuba diving professional!

Best of all, we offer unlimited shore diving to our Divemaster Candidates to help them gain more under water experience and increase their logged dives.

Divemaster course options

Our Divemaster course takes three to five weeks. There is no fixed schedule, you can start when you like. The time to complete the course depends on your experience and effort but also on the number of courses / customers that we have and on the weather conditions.

Prerequisite to start the PADI Divemaster course is Rescue diver. If you are not a Rescue diver yet, you can complete this course with us in a couple of days. Normally you also need a minimum of 40 logged dives to start your Divemaster course. Because we are PADI CDC center, you only need 20 logged dives to start the DM course with us.

Typically, our Divemaster candidates log about 40-50 dives during their course.

Things to remember

It is highly recommended that you use your own dive equipment on the Divemaster course. Anyway, if you are planning to work in Thailand, it is good to know that most dive centers will expect you to bring your own equipment.

We do not sell dive equipment in our dive center but all main manufacturers have retail centers in Phuket and we can buy divegear for you at discounted prices. Please ask us about the details.
