Dive-Careers.com have been conducting IDCs in conjunction with Calypso Diving in uShaka MarineWorld, Durban. It is great facilites with some of our shallow water sessions actually taking place in the aquarium with rays and groupers cruising past. Excellent diving off the coast of Kwazu Natal, with some of the most world famous shark dives off nearby Aliwoal Shoal. They programs have been really successful as you can see by the below Scuba Tribe reviews. Our candidates have doen really well on the instructor exam, but, more importantly, we have helped launch them on great careers in the dive industry.


"I did my IDC through Dive Careers in South Africa this past month and I was blown away by the amount of knowledge and guidance I was given! Having come from Mozambique and diving all day everyday to sitting in a classroom was not a pleasant thought, however thanks to Bas who was an incredible Course Director I could not wait to get in there and learn! I left with more confidence and a renewed passion to go out and teach diving to the rest of the world! I would definitely recommend this team if you want to get out and join the PadiPro world ! Big thanks to the team for all they did for us and for going the extra mile to get us ready for the world of teaching! Dive Careers gives you that step ahead and and constantly inspires you to achieve success! Top marks or in exam terms ...5/5 !!!" Matt
