As pioneers in sustainable marine tourism, Dive Ninja Expeditions announces a new PADI divemaster internship in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico unlike any other in the industry. Encompassing conservation, skill proficiency, and professional experience, this 4-6 week program is designed for those looking to expand their careers in this unconventional industry and make a positive impact for our oceans.
Dive Ninja Expeditions has built a reputation on sharing the beauty of Mexico’s abundant oceans while fighting to protect them through full circle ecotourism & conservation projects. Over the years, they have partnered with Sea Shepherd, Nakawe Project, and Empty The Tanks, just to name a few. Now, they are extending their resources to others wanting to share their passion for sustainability through this exclusive divemaster internship.
“Becoming a PADI dive professional has allowed me to share the underwater world with countless people from all over and be a part of a community that shares a common goal: fighting for the future of our oceans. Now, we have a chance to empower other dive professionals with the best tools to make an even greater impact in their future careers using the platform we have created here at Dive Ninjas.”
—Donna, Team Ninja Instructor
Based on years of experience building ecotours, such as their citizen-science striped marlin and mobula ray expeditions, they have created conservation workshops for dive pros where divemaster candidates will learn everything from working with local scientists to designing their own eco tours. In total, they have built 12 specialized modules for the new curriculum that are then intertwined with the PADI Divemaster course to create their Ninja PADI Divemaster program. These cover a range of topics — from shark biology & conservation to learning scuba equipment maintenance. During their divemaster internship, candidates are also mentored by the team in all aspects of the dive business, not just the diving. The aim is to help them become a greater asset when they start working in the industry.
The course is also tailored to each individuals’ specific goals and diving aspirations with options to add on technical diving, photography, and other skills & certifications. The opportunities are endless with Dive Ninja Expeditions under the leadership of pro-photographer & conservationist, Jay Clue. Introduction to photo and video services, resume building, working in remote areas, marine conservation, and other skills that build a solid foundation for a well-rounded dive professional. A divemaster that has the tools to make a positive impact wherever their career may take them.
