At 3W Dive, we offer a comprehensive divemaster apprenticeship. Enjoy up to 4 months of unlimited diving and full access to our shop. We provide everything you need to launch your professional diving career: work experience, networks, and references.

Our divemaster trainees are at the centre of their program. Each intern is assigned a mentor to guide them through their training, ensuring constant progress.

Becoming a divemaster isn’t just about fun; it’s about stepping out of your comfort zone to handle the job’s demands. You’ll finish the program ready to work anywhere in the world.
While the course isn’t free, we offer invaluable hands-on experience and unlimited diving. We go beyond basic training, teaching you all the tricks of the trade.

Why become a Divemaster?

Through your divemaster training in Indonesia, you will discover a career that can take you to so many other incredible dive locations. Or, just take a break in paradise. Become part of the tight-knit Gili Air community, an island where lifelong friendships form over cold beer and breathtaking sunsets.

At 3W we recognise that everyone who is becoming a divemaster has different needs and aim to meet them all. That’s why we dive in small groups no bigger than four people and have an instructor to guide you throughout your divemaster training. Your Divemaster certification will be delivered by SSI. Many of our SSI instructors also have a teaching background in other scuba diving organisations such as PADI or CMAS, so you will benefit from their broad knowledge. You’ll also get hands-on experience with guests and the day-to-day operations of a dive shop. We will go above and beyond the basics of Divemaster training, teaching you all the tricks of the trade.

To give your Divemaster training the edge it needs, we offer additional courses:

  • Deep Dive
  • Sidemount
  • Nitrox
  • Coral Diver Course
And if after completing your divemaster internship you’re interested in taking the next step in your professional development, we’ll make sure you’re fully prepared for your Instructor Development Course.

Divemaster Interns Day

Wake up early for your day of divemaster training and cycle to the dive shop – breakfast in-hand while calling out a tonne of ‘pagis’ – ‘good morning’ to all your local friends.

Get one of 3W’s espressos in you before starting your divemaster internship day with a pool session, some theory or head out on the 8.30am dive.

You’ll help your customers gear up and have a chat with them about the dive or pool skills their about to do, sharing with them your infectious love of diving and even how they could become a divemaster.

Then head out on the second dive at 11.30. As you fall back into crystal clear warm waters surrounded by green turtles, moray eels and many other underwater creatures, re-member to soak every moment of your divemaster internship up!

Help the tribe unload the boat and rinse off the equipment before it’s time to grab some food and log your dive. We have a heap of fish ID books which you can use to learn more about the different creatures big, small, ugly, cute or see-through! We seriously love fish.

Spend the afternoon learning more about the underwater world from the comfort of your own bean bag or enjoy the 2.30 dive before happy hour hits.

Finish up at 5 pm and grab dinner with the tribe over a classic Gili Air sunset.

Dive. Eat. Sleep. Repeat. That’s the divemaster internship way of life, make it yours as well!
