Looking to make a career out of your diving hobby? Your adventure begins with the PADI Divemaster program at Joe’s Gone Diving in Bali. We have two options for you, either our 2-week Divemaster training in which you learn everything you need to know to be a Divemaster. Or our 1-Month Divemaster Internship program in which you will get some extra training including workshops such as Sidemount, Equipment, Photography, Tank Filling and Conservation for free. If you have a lot of time, you could even extend your Divemaster Internship on Bali by 1 month.
During the dive training you learn how to supervise dive activities and how to assist PADI Dive Instructors with their courses. Once you are a certified PADI Divemaster you can guide dives with certified divers, assist with dive courses and independently conduct different PADI programs such as Discover Scuba Diving and Snorkelling, Skin Diver and PADI Reactivate. Anywhere around the world!

At Joe’s, we are not just focused on meeting the basic PADI requirements of the divemaster course, you will work closely with our experienced PADI Dive Instructors to expand your dive knowledge & skills to a professional level. So that if you decided to continue and become a PADI Dive Instructor, you will already have all the skills in place to get your Instructor Development Course off to a flying start.
You will work with multiple, experienced dive staff and for each specific topic with true professionals in their fields. Wherever possible you will work with real divers and students.

The PADI Divemaster course consists of a mix of dive theory, workshops, stamina tests, practical skills assessments and practical experience. At Joe’s we want you to know more and go beyond the standardized divemaster course, as diving nowadays stretches out in different directions. If you take our 1-month divemaster internship, we will give you extra training in Sidemount, Photography, Conservation, Tank filling and Equipment. With those extra components, you will stand out in the professional world and be prepared for whichever needs your future dive customers have. Everything designed to bring your diving skills to the next level while having lots of fun at the same time. A brief overview of the main elements:
- Dive theory: physics, physiology and dive equipment

Besides various pool sessions to fine-tune your diving skills, your course will take you to a variety of dive sites across Bali as we dive on different dive locations every day. As Bali's dive sites are so diverse, you will get to experience many different dive conditions. Plus make some great dives!
TIP: Your dive theory can either be done here on Bali or you can already start preparations at home through eLearning. This last option means you have already covered most of your theory by the time you get to Bali, leaving more time for diving.
