Our SCUBA professional training program is flexible so you can join in at the phase that suits your experience level. The training part of the program covers 4 to 6 months, from complete novice to experienced Dive Master.

The Diving

Aliwal Shoal is one of the best training areas in the country due to its diversity of conditions and marine wildlife.  You will be exposed to dynamic diving conditions with varying currents, temperatures and visibilities. The diversity of marine life on Aliwal Shoal is unmatched throughout Southern Africa. The shoal is abundant with sharks, whales, rays, fish, turtles, nudibranchs and much more.

The Lifestyle

Life on the SCUBA professionals training program is based around morning SCUBA diving, shark expeditions and SCUBA training. Afternoons are focused on workshops and career training / experience in running a dive centre. Evenings and some weekends will give you lots of opportunities to experience the local culture, attend fun social evenings, join excursions to nearby game parks & socialise with other students while working with the Blue Wilderness team.
