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 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!

Lots of Instructors, Lots of Experience

We have over 20 Instructors and Divemaster on our staffing team, and between them all we can teach almost all specialties. That means whichever specialty you want to take, we have a wealth of different experience and knowledge bases. Many of our instructors have been teaching for 15+ years, so you'll be sure to get extra knowledge from vast experience. 

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 OWSI

  • Be at least 18

  • Be certified at student level for the specialty you wish to teach (can be done in conjunction)
