Dive Master Internship

In 1999 Mermaids Dive Centre created the Worlds first Dive Master Internship. The diving industry required a more professional approach to the training of a dive pro and we took the lead. Diving instructor internships followed allowing Dive Masters to progress into scuba diving instruction seamlessly.

All of Mermaids scuba diving internships are FULLY inclusive of agency fees, unlimited diving, full equipment (to keep), dive courses, training, materials and accommodation. Being ALL-Inclusive allows you the professional diver in training to concentrate solely on education and experience. We want you to become the very best diving pro possible and enjoy a wonderful life working in the scuba industry.

Located in Thailand Mermaids offer Dive Master and Dive Instructor training 365 days per year. With a year-long diving season we’re well placed to receive divers any time that is convenient to them. The local diving creates a perfect training ground with several penetrable ship wrecks, deep and shallow coral dives, slack and ripping currents – we have a wide range of diving experiences on our doorstep.

Diving internships allow you the ‘wet-side’ training in order to be a diving professional. Additionally Mermaids operate dry-side scuba repair training in the form of dive equipment maintenance and servicing. We offer a Scuba Engineer Internship that includes diving equipment, compressor strip down, engine rebuild, scuba tank testing and much more. Dry-Side scuba skills are looked at by diving employers very favourably.

If you are looking to become the very best dive pro possible then Mermaids can assist you with your dream. It is our goal to make you as employable as possible as a diver and work prepared. Mermaids have hundreds of ex-interns working throughout the world within the diving industry.

Mermaids sponsor the Bournemouth Kawasaki Team IOM TT

Solo racer, James Hillier, has secured the number one plate for Superbike, Superstock, Supersport and Supertwins races on his Quattro Plant Kawasaki machinery.

Already a seasoned TT campaigner with a swathe of top six placings at recent events, the 28 year old from Ringwood, Hants, is seen by many seasoned TT pundits as a rider to watch this season of 2013.

Having starred in the award winning promotional video for the latest Kawasaki Ninja ZX-6R Supersport machine – filmed entirely on the TT course – Hillier has no qualms about being the first competitor down Bray Hill and over Ago’s leap and around the 37 ¾ mile course.

“Some riders have a favourite number, some like to follow and others are superstitious in other ways, the Isle of Man gets to you like that. Personally, I like the idea of being first away and having a clear road ahead. To be fair, it’s against the clock anyway so if I can have some time early on to myself to get dialled in then so much the better.”
