Frequently Asked Questions

What is it like being a PADI Divemaster?

Have you ever spent time while at work wishing you could be diving? You could be! PADI Divemasters dive all over the world and are an integral part of the SCUBA diving world. Divemasters take visitors and locals diving and show off their favorite dive sites. Divemasters also assist with classes and provide crucial help to new divers. Divemasters also work on dive charters and cruises, traveling around the world, diving!

Why should I do my Divemaster program at Beyond Land Adventures?

There are many places that a student can start the Divemaster program, but none will parallel the experience and learning available at an elite PADI Dive Center with exceptional dive staff. We specialize in training future dive instructors and Divemasters. Our program is not about checking off boxes on a list, but rather about a combination of knowledge development, mentoring, experience, and challenge. If you are looking for the “easy Divemaster program”, then we are definitely not the right shop for you. If you are looking to be challenged and mentored so that you can become an exceptional Divemaster, give us a call!

I am happy with my job, but I want to learn more about diving and improve my skills; can I still take the Divemaster course?

Absolutely! Divemaster is the first professional level certification, but that does not mean you have to work if you are a Divemaster. Many divers take the Divemaster course just to improve their understanding about diving and challenge themselves to improve their dive skills. Regardless of whether you work in the industry or not, the Divemaster course will brand you as an exceptional diver and subject-matter expert.

What are the prerequisites to starting the Divemaster course?

To begin the Divemaster program, you will need to have the Advanced Open Water certification, Rescue Diver certification, a current, within the last two years, CPR/First Aid certification, and 40 logged dives. If you have any questions about these requirements or need help with them, please give us a call at (619) 366 - 6266 or email us at
