Some people define success by their job title, where they live, or what they drive, but that type of success isn’t for everyone. Becoming a PADI® Master Scuba Diver™ is for those with a passion for exploration who value experiences more than things. It’s an elite rating, true, but becoming a Master Scuba Diver is as much about the journey as the destination. The road to Master Scuba Diver includes:

Open Water Diver
Advanced Open Water Diver
Rescue Diver
5 PADI Specialties
and 50 logged dives

Customize your Master Scuba Diver experience based on your interests. For example, if you’re interested in marine biology, include the Fish Identification, Underwater Naturalist and Peak Performance Buoyancy specialties in your course plan. If you hope to start a career in diving (divemaster, instructor, public safety diver, etc.) Master Scuba Diver is a great way to pick up essential skills such as navigation, emergency oxygen administration, and how to use a lift bag (search and recovery).

You can also use your Master Scuba Diver journey as a way to explore the world. Pick up a different certification as you visit dive destinations throughout the world. Many offer rare distinctive specialties such as Manta Ray Diver or even Hot Springs Diver.
