Let your passion become your profession…
Whether you are looking to take your first step as a dive professional, build your personal dive skills or get a taste for a totally different lifestyle, at Takata Experience we can help you to achieve all of these and more through our PADI Divemaster program!
We are not just a PADI 5 Star Dive Center – we have a dynamic and busy Research Center and during your internship you will have the opportunity to be involved in our conservation efforts in Mahahual!
At Takata Experience, we conduct the PADI Divemaster program as an internship, usually running from 3 to 6 weeks, depending on your schedule. You will become part of our team as you gain dive knowledge, fine tune your dive skills and act as a role model to our students and customers. You will work closely with our team of experienced instructors as you learn about supervising divers and assisting with diver training. During your internship you will learn about the logistics and workings of a dive center, invaluable experience for those looking to build a career in the dive industry.
If you are under time constraints, we can offer the PADI Divemaster program over 2 weeks. We would require that the Dive Theory is completed online beforehand and you have at least 50 logged dives. Contact us for more information on the shorter program.
