Divemaster Course

$1450 USD

The PADI Divemaster course is the first professional level in the PADI system. It develops your leadership abilities by training you to supervise dive activities and assist instructors with student divers. It is the first step in your scuba diving career. 


During the PADI Divemaster course, you will learn about:

  • Supervising certified divers

  • Assisting with students

  • Risk management

  • The physiology of diving

  • Dive equipment

  • The physics of diving

  • Decompression theory

  • The recreational dive planner

  • Diving skills

  • The underwater environment

  • Independently conduct specific PADI programs and courses


The Divemaster is the first step on the PADI professional ladder, and the more you put into the course, the more you will get out of it. 


You will be assigned a Lead Instructor who will mentor you during the course; this personal touch is what makes all the difference. You will be working with many other Barefoot instructors during your training, but the Lead Instructor is there to be your guide to becoming the best Divemaster possible. 

This close working relationship often continues long after the course finishes.


Senior instructors at our home beach in Cozumel conduct all of the academic and confined water sessions. We carry out our educational modules in our state of the art classroom, and we generally do the open water work at our beach.

Note: We can arrange trips to the boat and other inland sites (cenotes).


The most important part of the course comes after you finish. Once you have the DM license, how do you get the experience? At Barefoot Dive Center, we offer 2 weeks of course shadowing to all of our trainees to get that vital experience needed to progress in the dive industry. 


PADI has recently awarded Barefoot Dive Center for our ‘Outstanding Contribution to the Diving Industry,’ so join us today and become part of the team.


Although the Divemaster Course has a cost, we need to earn the certification. 

We are incredibly confident that we will provide everything needed to have a fantastic time on a tremendous course.
