Become a PADI Pro in 2024

DM, IDC and EFRI have been scheduled and locked in. Will you join us this year?

A scuba diving career is one of the best jobs in the world, where you teach others doing what you love the most. This is why our Divemaster and Instructor Development Courses focus on quality more than anything else.

At our beautiful resort near Manado we teach you to become a true diving professional, walking away with a certification and the confidence that you will be able to teach people the joy of diving yourself.

Whether you want to do a Master Scuba Diver Trainer course or a full-blown IDC combined with an internship, we offer an unforgettable experience where you make new friends, dig into a treasure of deep knowledge, and learn a lot about yourself in the process.

PADI Course overview

Love scuba diving? Want to share it with others on a whole new level? Take the PADI Divemaster course and do what you love to do as a career. Scuba divers look up to divemasters because they are leaders who mentor and motivate others. As a divemaster, you not only get to dive a lot, but also experience the joy of seeing others have as much fun diving as you do.

If you like people, have a passion for scuba diving and want an extraordinary life – become a PADI Instructor. Teaching scuba diving allows you to share your love of the aquatic world with others while doing what you enjoy – being in, around and under water.

CPR and first aid are key skills that are important to everyone, not just scuba divers. As an Emergency First Response Instructor, you teach skills based on internationally recognized emergency care guidelines, and you can offer courses to anyone. The great thing about EFR courses is they make learning easy by providing a comfortable environment to practice emergency care skills. 

Scuba diving is a way to explore the underwater world in new and different ways. PADI Specialty Diver courses teach you new techniques and give you the tools to enhance your exploration. 

Simone’s teaching is straight to the point and her methods ensure the material sticks in your head forever, because she is passionate about shaping divers properly. My IDC at Thalassa was exactly what I had wished and hoped for, especially compared to my prior Divemaster course elsewhere.

For beginners

If you have zero experience diving and you’ve always wanted to try scuba diving for yourself, our skilled instructors make sure you will learn everything you need to know to become a great diver.

For intermediates

Haven't dived in a while? Our Re-Activate course will get you up to speed in no time. In addition, doing an Advanced Open Water course is a great way to improve on your existing skill-set.
