Training to become a Divemaster anywhere is a fantastic way to spend several months abroad. There are few other travel activities that can provide you with this much adventure and fun, and of course the excitement of being underwater in a completely different world totally different to everything your used to. It is highly addictive. On this course, it is particularly special because it is located in the Caribbean, on the world’s second-largest barrier Reef, with some superb dive sites so you will really enjoy your days diving in crystal clear seas.

Honduras has it all underwater, superb network of caves, canyons and underwater channels. Some first-class wreck dive sites, made even more special by the excellent visibility you find in the Caribbean, and of course the extremely diverse and special marine life that you find in Honduras. At one dive site in particular, named Texas, you will find plenty to harass barracuda, elusive Sargassum trigger fish and will no doubt be diving with Dolphins on several occasions.

Itinerary

Divemaster internship Honduras (14)There is no set itinerary during a Divemaster course, each day is different with different dive sites and different things to learn depending on which stage of your Divemaster internship you are at. Typically a day would involve waking up bright and early, packing equipment jumping on the boat and then going for a spectacular dive before breakfast, some days you will be shadowing instructors, other days taking clients the dive is leading them through the dive sites and giving them their pre-dive safety briefings, and of course there is some theory and study about the safety of diving and everything you need to learn to become a Divemaster.

Accommodation

Divemaster internship Honduras (1)We use a variety of different accommodation options usually your own cosy apartment or a shared apartment close to the dive centre.

Please note that the included accommodation does not cover your utility bills, and there will be a local payment necessary to cover your bills at the end of the stay. On average this costs US$100 per month although this does depend on your own personal usage.

That means if you run your air conditioning all the time you will end up paying more however if you take care to turn your air conditioning off and your lights off when you go out that your bills will be next to nothing.
