Frequently Asked Questions

How much notice do I need to give to get a PADI Diving Instructor on board my Superyacht?

The more notice we are given the easier it is to ensure we have the right PADI instructor available. However the minimum time would be 10 days and would also depend on travel. Last minute bookings cannot be guaranteed but we will always aim to assist whatever the timescale.

Can I get a PADI Diving instructor anywhere in the world?

Yes, however, it would all depend on travel times and cost. Our team are happy to fly anywhere in the world but the expenses and travel time would be charged to the vessel.

What is the cost of instructors to teach scuba diving?

The costs are on this PDF. The only variables are travel, sustenance, visas and accommodation.

Where can I get an Audit?

Audits can take place anywhere in the world and we always aim to fit around your boats schedule. We have agents in Montenegro, Barcelona and Monaco who are able to assist with this service.

Can the PADI boat manager be any member of my crew?

Yes, the PADI boat manager should be a member of the crew. This person does not need to be a trained diver, though knowledge of diving is useful but not a necessity. We will assist in their training during the audit process.

Who will be auditing the vessel?

A Dive Superyacht auditor trained and managed by Dive Superyacht

Can I run diving without an instructor on board?

There needs to be a minimum of a PADI Divemaster managing any dives.

How can I be sure that the instructor will deliver at the correct level for our guests?

We will have a full consultation with you with regard to the needs of your guests and ensure you get the right person for the job.

Do the instructors understand how superyachts work?

Yes, as we specialize in Superyacht Diving all of our instructors will be briefed on how superyachts work and they will be trained in the PADI specialty ‘PADI Superyacht Diver’.

Do I need to contact PADI?

No, we will manage everything for you.

Will PADI professionals need assistance for diving from a member of the crew?

During all times a member of the crew will be required to ensure our divers work within the boats operational guidelines. This can be any member of the crew but we would recommend they can also drive the tenders for diving courses.
