PADI Divemaster training Philippines, might be a burning wish that going to come true. Maybe it’s the beginning of a longer journey. Or maybe you choose to do it just for the fun and the challenge. Or maybe you are working your way to become a PADI Instructor one day. No matter what your reason is, many things are sure. You will become a much better diver, more knowledgeable, confident when your course is done. It will be the time of your life, time in paradise with loads of fun. We usually encourage our Divemaster Trainees to stay for minimum 5 weeks, or even extend this… If you have the time why not spend it diving everyday. The best way to get comfortable with diving is to do it every day, for a longer period. And of course, our training comes with unlimited dives! For a 5 star PADI dive center you’d need a boat. Did you see our 5 star dive boat, properly the best dive boat in the area!
Join a Divemaster internship with Bongo Bongo Divers!
Bongo Bongo Divers isn’t a “normal” dive shop we do everything a little bit differently. Our whole setup is less formal, than most other places. As soon as you start your internship, you become a part of the Bongo family. We strive to offer you the best possible training, and develop each individual, to become the best possible divers. And of course, in the end awesome Divemasters. Everyone is different and therefore our is training not always the same for all individuals. We expect a lot from our Divemaster Trainees. The more independent you are and the more you’r interested in learning. The more you’ll gain more through your stay and training. You’ll also get more responsibilities as you progress through your experience.
You should think that when you do the same PADI course, it should include the same training, no matter of what dive center you choose to do your course with. This is mostly how it is done, and all the the steps you have to go through will be ticked off at the end of the day.
There’s just always room to spend a little more time and spend a little more effort to push people a little extra. There are all the unwritten rules and things that are not described in the books. There’s also bunch of other skills that are easy to understand and read, but you need to practice it in real life until you learn it. And then you need to repeat it, and repeat it until it really sits. As we say, repetition is key to learning.
Bongo Bongo Divers got all, for your perfect PADI divemaster training Philippines. We have nice chill vibe. Awesome people and staff. We are a young dynamic team, who are all passionated in working and doing with what we love. Join our wicked lifestyle on the beach, diving, swimming, and once in a while go crazy in the local nightclubs in Dumaguete. You might end up getting stuck for another few months or years – who knows?! Check out our Tripadvisor reviews from our guests as too they were captured by not only us but also the diving scene where we are located plus the local vibes that won their hearts…
