Your adventure into the professional levels of recreational scuba diving begins with the SSI Divemaster program. Working closely with a SSI Instructor, in this program you expand your dive knowledge and hone your skills to the professional level. SSI Divemaster training develops your leadership abilities and qualifies you to supervise scuba dive activities. SSI Divemaster is the prerequisite certification for both, the SSI Dive Control Specialist (Assistant Instructor) and SSI Open Water Instructor certifications.

During the SSI Divemaster program you will develop leadership skills through both classroom and independent study (SSI Science of Diving). You complete water skills and stamina exercises as well as scuba diving training skills (SSI Dive Guide), that stretch your ability to organize and solve problems as well as help others improve their scuba diving. You put this knowledge into action through a structured internship or series of practical training exercises.

In the SSI Divemaster course you will expand your diving skills, hone your skills and increase your self-confidence. As a SSI Divemaster, you will use these attributes to lead, mentor and motivate other divers and experience the joy of seeing them transformed by the majesty of the the acquatic realm.

We provide more than just the basic Divemaster training here at Aloha Diving. We realize that many people will eventually want to continue on with their diving career and become SCUBA Instructors. Therefore, we also teach you additional dive theory so that you are prepared for when you come to take the Instructor course. Without this additional training, the step between Divemaster and Instructor can be a big one.

Learn how a busy and successful dive center operates by being a part of our team and helping with the day-to-day running of the dive center.

Get a really good deal on the price of your instructor course if you choose to continue your adventure with us!

At the end of your internship, you will have earned your ticket to travel and dive the world!

Fantastic experience, couldn't recommend more. Three of us signed up for the Open Water Diver course, 2 beach dives and 2 boat dives. We were lucky to have a super relaxed instructor and another trainee instructor to ourselves, which particularly helped ease me when I had a mini panic attack on first entry in the beach dive. The equipment seemed state of the art, from the deep container pool at the training centre to the wetsuits, regulators, diving computers etc. And we got amazing photos in the mix! Seriously above and beyond what other diving centers appear to offer, and a really high bar to beat for our future dives!read more

I just did 2 day trips with Aloha Diving and it was simply perfect. Thank you! To be more precise: The communication with Alice and Simon (owner of Aloha Diving) prior to the dives was easy and both were very responsive. During the day trips, which they do in corporation with another company, everything was well organized, they have good rental equipment and most important safety matters for them! To conclude: I can highly recommend Aloha more
