Divemaster Internship


Koh Tao Divemaster Training Schedules


To begin with you will sit an Orientation. This is conducted by one of our two dedicated ‘Divemaster in Training co-ordinators’. Our DMT Co-ordinators will be responsible for supervising your entire course and overseeing your schedule from Day 1.


As well as scheduling they personally conduct the following modules:


Skill Circuits
Knowledge Development; Knowledge Reviews & Exams
DM Workshops
Deep Diver Workshop
Search & Recovery Workshop
Water Assessments (swim tests)
Underwater Mapping Project
Emergency Assistance Plan (EAP)


Early during your DM course you will be assigned a ‘mentor’ from our Instructional team. They will personally oversee your progress and ensure your course is progressing as you wish (and as we wish too!). You will spend some of the course ‘assisting student divers in training’ and although you will have the opportunity to assist a variety of our Instructors, when possible you will assist your mentor.


We will schedule your training in sequence, building up your diving skills, confidence and experience step by step whilst you enjoy Koh Tao’s fantastic dive sites and marine life. We’ve got over 25 dive sites close to the island ranging from shallow coral reefs, giant boulders, small caves and swim-throughs to deeper outer laying pinnacles. There are also two wreck dives within a 25 minute trip.


As your Divemaster internship progresses, you’ll gradually assume more responsibility, becoming more and more part our team.


You’ll be assisting with:


Boat & dive centre logistics
Assisting our certified Divemasters with certified divers
Delivering briefings to divers
Assisting our Instructors with student diver training
Guiding certified divers on underwater tours
You can dive as much as you want so expect to log many dives, working together with people from all over the world.


Crystal Dive Resort has three purpose built swimming pools. All confined water training activities including the Divemaster course skill circuits are conducted in one of our pools.

We also have 3 medium to large dive boats. Our dive boat runs twice daily; two dives in the morning (from about 07:30- 12:00), then again in the afternoon (from about 12:30 till 17:00) with night dives usually every second night.

Accommodation on Koh Tao


Alongside the Divemaster course we can help organize a range of accommodation to make sure your stay here on Koh Tao is comfortable.


Most long term Dive internship trainees stay at a nearby guesthouse. You can get your own private room with cable TV, fridge, en-suite bathroom, wifi etc. The prices vary depending on size, a/c or fan cooled, whether you want a hot shower and also the season.


If you budget for 10,000 - 14,000 THB per month you will not be disappointed although there are places available from as little as 7,000 THB.


If you prefer something more up market, there are detached private bungalows or houses with multiple bedrooms, kitchens etc. These range from 18,000 - 30,000 THB per month, depending on location, size. etc.


We’re happy to show you around all room options on arrival and help find somewhere you are happy with. And if you have any special requests, please feel free to let us know and we’ll do our best to help.
