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.

Divers Toga Party Pattaya

Divers Toga Party- Pattaya, Thailand

Toga – Fancy dress fun in TQ2 and on the town.

The diving brings all together to meet here with a passion in common. Training and learning together daily brings all together very strongly indeed. We get to share the fun of diving but what about other times … yes daily!

The Mermaids divers dressed in Roman garb. laurel’s and swords ruled the evening.

Steve Blumenthal hosted an extravagant Toga party for one and all in the Mermaids favorite Venue – TQ2. Merriment ensued and continued throughout the night. The party started on Soi White house at the dive shop. Needless to say that a large group of dive interns turning up clad in bed sheets did turn a few heads.

Moving on from Soi White House in a pack formation the interns took TQ2s by storm , Roman punch flowed freely and battles commenced. In good Roman form, after drinking TQ2 dry of King’s Ales and other , they went on to hit walking street where the party was continued long in to the night and in to the wee early. All were careful not to get fed to the lions. Please do have a look at some of the pics – they open in a new window.
