One Chance

The first thing to consider when deciding where to take your PADI Divemaster course is that you will only ever take this course once. Secondly, you are now entering the professional realm of diving. What can be more important at this stage of your career than receiving the best training available?

With such a wide range of choices of where to go it can get confusing. PADI Resort, 5 star IDC center, 5 star CDC center - which one? Ultimately the most important thing is who is going to teach you. This is where we excel with our highly experienced and enthusiastic instructors. Check out our Sharkey team page for more info on each of us and also our Why Sharkey? Divemaster Section on more reasons to come dive with us.

Diving Phuket

There are many places around the world where you can take your course but having a wonderful place to stay and great diving as part of the course is a must. With a large variety of dive sites and marine life you can get to experience some truly excellent diving around Phuket. We also offer excellent discounts on any dive trips including Similan liveaboard trips after you have completed your Divemaster course. Check out our Why Phuket? Divemaster Section for more info.


At Sharkey Scuba we believe that to be a good divemaster requires building experience as well as just completing the necessary training. During the course we offer 25 dives, mainly boat, some beach, visiting most of the major dive sites around Phuket and Phi Phi. We also offer a number of pool training sessions which in our view are as essential and rewarding as the open water dives.

From our many years of experience we know that it is impossible to turn out a quality Divemaster in too short a period of time. For that reason we insist on a minimum of 3 weeks to complete the course. Generally we recommend that our trainees spend 5 to 6 days per week on their dive training. However, schedules are flexible - after all, you are the customer! Also, it is not necessary to take the whole course in one go so if you wish to complete it over a multiple visits to Phuket then this is easily arranged.


We are very pleased to have had a lot of positive feedback from our guests over the years.
