Training and developing highly employable PADI Divemasters and future Instructors who are ready to take on the dive industry



Roatan Divers emphasizes the safety of our guests and staff as our highest priority. Learning the importance of scuba safety is imperative to becoming a safe and responsible PADI professional.


During your PADI Divemaster Internship, you are representing Roatan Divers. You will work with our international team of highly experienced PADI Instructors and boat captains to learn from their years of experience in the industry.

personal attention

We take maximum three candidates at a time so that you get the attention you deserve. While you will work with all of our team, you will have a main mentor throughout the program to guide you through the course.


Roatan Divers is located in the heart of West End. Our private dock makes boarding our boats a breeze, and provides tranquility from the hustle and bustle of the main road of West End.

Easily one of the most professional, friendly and hilarious groups I’ve met. Working with all 6 instructors was a great laugh, everyone mentored me from day 1.

You get a real taste for how the dive industry works, see how a shop should be run and get treated like a valued member of the RD team (not a dive slave like so many others). Karl and Saaya do diving RIGHT - and you get to be a part of it.

PADI is the most recognized name in recreational scuba diving worldwide. About 70% of worldwide dive certifications are PADI, meaning PADI Divemasters and Instructors are highly employable in the dive industry. Being a PADI dive professional opens you up to a long list of exciting locations to call your office.  

More than just developing your abilities in the water, the PADI Divemaster program and PADI Instructor Development Course develops your leadership skills and will qualify you to supervise scuba activities and assist instructors with student divers.

I did my divemaster training in August/September and Roatan Divers was definitively the best dive center to do it. The owners, Saaya and Karl, have managed to create a very professional and customer-centric dive center with a very friendly atmosphere.

I did my Divemaster training with Roatan Divers and I do not have one bad thing too say about this shop, staff (including captains) and the owners Karl and Saaya.
The way they treat people/customers is something I haven’t experienced in a while. It seems to be their mission to help others.
Not only I enjoyed every single dive with well serviced equipment and the probably quickest boat on the island but also the Vibe in this shop is amazing.
