When you first learn to dive your instructor teaches you how to dive and how the equipment works but there are other guys and girls there at the dive site helping you out so you do things right, but who are these noble divers helping you out? These are Dive Masters. Dive Masters are the first tier of professional scuba divers in the PADI training regime and they act as skilled assistants to Instructors so you’ll often have one Instructor and a few Dive Masters on your course keeping you safe and teaching you how to dive because your Instructor can’t be everywhere at once.

Dive Masters have a rough life in the professional diving community and we do make fun of them but that’s because we were all Dive Masters at one point in our diving career, and much like the military or prep school there’s always a culture of bullying those beneath you. There are two main types of Dive Master out there; the leaders and the teachers. Leaders have just toured guides that lead groups of qualified divers around dive sites and getting them back to the boat safely and teachers are what Dive Masters are really made for, to act as teaching assistants as a sort of secondary Trainee Instructor.

But as with all diver qualifications Dive Master has it’s pros and cons so let’s look at Why Becoming A Dive Master Sucks… (and also why it rules)
