PADI Divemaster

Start your career with Sea Spirit Diving Resort!
The first step in becoming a dive professional is the PADI Divemaster. Your dive education has made you into a great diver so far – during your Open Water you learned how to dive, in your Advanced Open Water you developed and fine-tuned your skills, and you learned how to care for others with the EFR & Rescue Diver. But now it’s time to take your diving to the next level and become a leader! Becoming a Divemaster gives you the opportunity to be outside in the sun, dive in the sea and show others the beautiful underwater world! With this job, you will always feel free! 

When you become a PADI Divemaster you will be able to guide certified divers on fun dives, conduct a Scuba Review for certified divers who want to refresh their diving skills, assist on PADI courses, and so much more! It all starts with the Divemaster Internship. The internship gives you unlimited dives, as well as the opportunity to assist courses, enhance your diving skills, learn from experienced dive instructors, work with other passionate divers, and much more. All this experience will make you an employable and competent dive professional in the future.

What we offer during the training:
During the Divemaster Internship we will focus on your diving skills, problem solving, briefing and guiding groups. We make sure you complete all the required components of the PADI Divemaster Course, such as the Search & Recovery Workshop, the Deep Dive Scenario and the Discover Scuba Diving Workshop. Furthermore, you will gain extra experience by working directly with our customers in all aspects, and become a skilled deckhand by assisting the skippers on our boats and being confident in emergency procedures. You will improve your skills regarding compressor handling and dive equipment maintenance. For the theory component, you will sit down with one of our PADI Instructors who will conduct lectures about various topics, such as physics and decompression theory, to gain a high level of academic knowledge. Assisting instructors will allow you to learn about possible problems that may occur with students, how to help them, how to communicate and how to position yourself during both confined water sessions and Open Water Dives. When you assist a Divemaster, you will learn what to say in the briefing, group management, how to work with differing experience levels, and how to keep everyone safe.

Open Water Diver

Imagine being weightless and seeing the most beautiful fish and other underwater world creatures this world has to offer. Imagine you could ‘fly’ through the water. This is really possible! Your dreams of jumping into the water and going diving can become true with Sea Spirit Diving Resort Taormina. Learn to dive and join us in Taormina, Sicily, Italy. The PADI Open Water Diver Course is the world’s most popular scuba course, and has introduced millions of people to the adventurous diving lifestyle. This PADI Course, is your chance to learn all the basic knowledge and skills you need to become a certified diver.

PADI Open Water Diver Course Online:
The most popular option is the PADI Open Water Diver Course with E-learning! As a new diver you can do the E-learning at home before you come to Taormina Sicily so you are already prepared and know the basics of dive theory. The E-learning part of PADI includes all theory, quizzes and exam. Once you are in Sicily we will review the theory and there is time to ask questions, talk about the different aspects of diving with the instructor and have the chance to interact with the other students to share your first experiences under water! When you will be certified, you are allowed to dive to a maximum depth of 18 meters together with a buddy or a PADI Dive Professional. This certification is valid for life!
Our first time under water will be in the swimming pool of the UNAHOTEL Naxos Beach in Giardini-Naxos Taormina. This way you can get used to breathing underwater and your buoyancy in a comfortable environment. You practice different skills in order to get used to the equipment, the breathing and the weightlessness we call buoyancy. This takes a half a day.

After the swimming pool we will practice everything you learned…. but this time in the Open Water at the Isola Bella Marine Park in Taormina! Here it all really starts! The sea will reveal it’s mysteries to you when you put on your mask, breathe from your regulator and descend together with your Instructor and your buddies. The first 2 dives are to a maximum depth of 12 meters and the last 2 dives will be at a maximum depth of 18 meters. You will do 2 dives a day, during our daily dive program.
For 10-11 year olds, it is possible to complete the Junior Open Water Diver Course in Taormina. The schedule and the content of the course are exactly the same. The only difference is that the maximum depth of the course and the certification is 12 meters. After certification the Junior Open Water Diver must dive with a parent/guardian or PADI Professional. Also the parent/guardian must sign all the administrative forms.

For 12-14 years olds, we also offer the Junior Open Water Diver Course in Taormina. The course is the same as the normal course. The Junior Open Water Diver must always dive with an adult certified diver, and a parent/guardian has to sign all the administrative forms.

Our experienced team of PADI Professionals is excited to teach you how to dive! We are waiting for you here in Taormina, Sicily to help you develop into confident and competent PADI divers.

Snorkeling in Taormina, Sicily
Snorkeling is the best way to discover the coasts of one of Italy’s most beautiful island. Simple and fun! You can admire some magnificent views such as “Isola Bella” and “Grotta Azzurra” and you can snorkel along the vertical walls in the bay of the blue cave and in the marine park of Isola Bella, surrounded by a vast variety of flora and fauna. The morphology of the coast and the sea beds is unique in its kind.

All our tours consist in interesting detailed explanations of the area’s history because there are many archaeological traces of the Greek/Roman period. Refreshments are offered to all guests during the tour and the staff will create a friendly feeling so that you can fully enjoy the magical atmosphere of this wonderful island.

Snorkeling and scuba diving are the best activities to admire Taormina’s wonderful sea beds – the coral and sea grass are not to be missed!

What is snorkeling?
Snorkeling simply means swimming on the surface with fins and a mask with a tube called snorkel. The snorkel is a curved tube, generally made from plastic and is also used in scuba diving. One end of the tube is made from silicone and shaped in an ergonomic way so that it can be comfortably inserted in the mouth.
It is used together with the mask so that it is possible to breathe without lifting your head up from the water, allowing you to continue swimming whilst looking at the sea beds.

Created for use in spear fishing, it is now an essential object for tourists whenever fins and masks are used. Snorkeling is not particularly a hard activity, however, there are some rules that must be followed. It is always advised to be guided by the staff of Sea Spirit Diving Resort who are experts of the area. They will safely accompany you during this wonderful experience with a high level of attention and professionalism.

Both boats have a fully-kitted first aid kit and pure oxygen tank.

Our resort is equipped with an air-conditioned classroom, an LCD-TV for all PADI-courses offered, a bathroom, an equipment- and cleaning area for our SCUBAPRO dive equipment, and a relaxation space surrounded by lemon trees. For all confined water aspects of the PADI Courses, we utilise the Olympic swimming pool in the hotel. The Olympic pool is just a few steps away and available every day at all times. To make your diving experience as comfortable as possible, we provide high-quality SCUBAPRO equipment. We have 20 complete SCUBAPRO equipment sets. To guarantee a safe dive with high quality, clean air, we use a Coltri Compressor to fill all of our tanks.

Oxygen is available and is taken to every dive site. First Aid facilities are also available at the resort and First Aid Kits are taken to the dive sites with all staff being EFR trained.

All dives are within the recreational no decompression limits and as safe practice 3min safety stops are incorporated into all of our dives.

We are available for diving 7 days a week during the season (April – October) and are able to offer very flexible dive packages and training courses.
