Divemaster Stories

Divemaster Reviews

Dive briefing

I came to Rich Coast Diving in August of 2022 as a divemaster intern. As of October 31st, I've officially received my divemaster certification!! My time here has been one of the most significant experiences of my life. The lasting friendships that I've formed, the knowledge and skills that I've gained, and getting to see myself overcome my struggles and hardships during the course to achieve my goals is invaluable to me. This course is designed to prepare you for the real diving industry, so don't expect to be pampered as a customer may be - you'll be learning the ins and outs and of how (and gaining the experience needed) to be a valuable asset in any dive crew! The diving varies from day to day - temperature, visibilty, weather, surge, and aquatic life - so you'll get a wide arrange of underwater experiences that make you a better diver.


During my stay, I lived at the intern/staff hostel. Staying at the hostel definitely made my time here feel more communal, as everyone staying there worked together, lived together, hung out together, and ate together. Getting to have time to study, work on projects, and exchange ideas with other DMT's and instructors certainly helped me get through the course. Coco is quite a small town, so if you stay here for any bit of time, you're bound to make some local friends as well. Be ready for some beautiful views and the daily stunning sunsets :) I'm extremely contented with how my time at Rich Coast has been and so grateful for all of the opportunities I have been given since being here 🙌🏻 If you want a real life experience, I'd highly recommend the divemaster internship at Rich Coast Diving.

  • What is the best time of the Year for the IDC in Costa Rica ?
    During the IDC you will spend most of your time in the classroom attending seminars, workshops and presentations. Then there are several pool sessions and a few training dives in the ocean. All of our training dive sites are conveniently located within 15 minutes away. We have access to great training dive sites with shallow and deep water. Conditions underwater can change from day to day but generally the water temperature ranges from 26 - 28 Celcius. So a 3 mm shorty wetsuit will be sufficient to keep you warm.

Divemaster life in Costa Rica

¿Cómo es el día de un aprendiz de divemaster?

Generalmente se empieza temprano, pedaleando hasta la tienda de buceo con el desayuno en la mano y saludando calurosamente a los lugareños con 'Pura Vida'.

A las 06.45 a.m. te embarcas en tus actividades de prácticas de divemaster, ya sea una sesión de entrenamiento en la piscina, preparar los barcos para los viajes de buceo de la mañana o ayudar en un curso de aguas abiertas o un curso de especialidad en conservación. Como PADI CDC, impartimos una amplia gama de cursos y obtendrás mucha capacitación y conocimientos adicionales al ayudar en estos fantásticos cursos.

Si estás en el barco te sumergirás en las profundidades de los mejores sitios de buceo de Costa Rica. Tortugas, tiburones, rayas, peces grandes y bancos de peces pondrán una gran sonrisa en el rostro de sus invitados y ¡esto le alegrará el día! Después de dos inmersiones regresarás a la tienda alrededor del mediodía.

Después de descargar y enjuagar el equipo preparamos la tienda y los viajes para el día siguiente.

Una vez a la semana pasarás la tarde en la tienda, lo que generalmente significa que podrás dormir hasta tarde ese día y empezar alrededor de las 11:30 y atender a los invitados hasta las 5:00 p.m.

De lo contrario, todas las tareas del Divemaster se realizan alrededor de las 14:00 y usted pasa la tarde descansando en la piscina del alojamiento del Divemaster o paseando por la playa y tomando unas copas para contemplar la puesta de sol junto a una fogata.


¡Bucea, come, duerme y repite! Esta es la vida de divemaster; pronto también será la tuya.
