The Ocean Pro Difference 

100% AWARE

We are partnered with Project AWARE, a global non-profit organization that is Protecting Our Ocean Planet - One Dive at a Time. They are focused on the critical issues of Sharks in Peril and Marine Debris, and we're supporting

them by donating $10 for every student we certify. 

Free Air

During your IDC Staff Instructor course we want you to gain experience as a diver so we encourage you  to go out diving as much as possible. To  help you do that, for the duration of the course we fill your tanks with air for free!

Learning Materials Included

Most shops advertise a nice low price for their IDC Staff Instructor course. A low price always looks good, but in this case low prices are full of hidden fees. Most shops don't include any of the learning materials in the IDC Staff Instructor price. We don't agree with that, so we make sure all learning materials you need are included.

Low Ratios

We keep our student to instructional staff ratios low to ensure you can progress a pace that is comfortable for you. We keep our numbers to a max of four students to one instructor or less.


  • Be qualified as a PADI MSDT

  • Be at least 18
