There are many exciting career options for those who love the ocean and are passionate about Scuba Diving.
One of the most popular career paths is to become a Scuba Diving Instructor, where you teach others to dive. This is a job that can be done all over the world, where you are able to explore some of the most beautiful parts of the world – underwater! Scuba Divers often become specialists in different types of diving, may it be wreck diving, cave diving, ice diving, or diving with new technical equipment.
There is no shortage of Dive Instructor Jobs being advertised internationally, from working on Live-aboard dive ships, cruise ships, managing dive centres to dive instructing in the tropics. We also have a strong Dive Industry in our own beautiful country, with such an incredible coast line which offers spectacular diving as well as being a haven for hunter and gatherers.
Being a professional Scuba Diver also opens up potential for all types of work that involve working underwater, to name a few:

Underwater Photography and Videography
Marine Science, Marine Biology and Research Diving
Commercial Diving – Engineering/Welding/Construction Underwater
