The Divemaster course is an amazing experience and Xcalak, Mexico is one of the best places to do it


Congratulations! You’re obviously thinking about taking your first step on the PADI professional ladder and we’d love to help you achieve your goal! The Divemaster course is an amazing experience and Xcalak, Mexico is one of the best places to do it – we’re sure that you will enjoy hanging out in our marine park with our manatees and eagle rays whilst gaining this incredible experience!
The course itself builds on the problem-solving skills that you have developed in the PADI Rescue Diver program and extends their application from accident management and prevention to supervisory situations with students and certified divers. You will form the appropriate leadership attitude and feel prepared to make sound judgment calls.
You will learn how to problem-solve safety-related issues and to have a positive, solution-oriented attitude toward customer service, business and operational challenges with practical, hands-on experience in a working Dive Centre. Most importantly, as an XTC intern, you will learn to be an environmentally-aware Divemaster and help to preserve this fragile environment for future generations.
