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.

Beat The Golf Pro Challenge

Charity Golfing Day in Pattaya, Thailand

Mermaids sponsored Golf Pro Andrew Scaife Charity Beat the Golf Pro – Thailand Mermaids Dive Center sponsored the golf professional Andrew Scaife whom teamed up with his work colleague Tyrone Renglli to raise money on the charity driven “beat the golf pro challenge”. Andrew teaches professionally at TPR Golf Academy in Pattaya, Thailand.

The format for the charity golfing day was team texas scramble. This meant that both professional golfers played against determined competitors as a foursome ball (playing alternate shots). There were some winners on the day that managed to collect a prize at the end of the hole and walk to the next tee with their heads held high. Everyone enjoyed the fun of playing against two professionals. The day was a great success, ran very smoothly and saw many happy faces in the clubhouse after enjoying some food and drinks. The professionals managed to raise 17,100 Thai baht throughout the day contributing to a total of around 500,000 bht (approximately £10,000 / $16,000 US) for the Camillian Charity.
