The Divemaster internship offers you the chance to combine conservation training with commercial diving experience. Spending 10 weeks on our expedition site you will build up to your PADI Rescue Diver whilst learning about the importance of coral reefs and learning how to identify the different species of fish, corals and invertebrates through the Skills Development Programme. After this you will then go onto a local PADI Dive Centre for 10 weeks to complete your Divemaster training.  This will enable you to see the other side of diving from a tourist’s point of view. Go to our Divemaster Internships page to learn more about this fantastic opportunity.




This Medical Elective lasts for 4 weeks and is aimed at medical students wanting to get experience in the field. You will be based at a rural hospital local to our Philippines site.
