People who have done it!

For me, the feeling you get diving at a dive school is most important. Beside the fact that Dive Division has branded itself as one of the most reputable programs around, it is above and beyond, and offers that ‘dive family’-feeling. I have enjoyed its PADI Pro program which is the largest on the island, making it a great choice for those thinking about staying island-bound longer term. Dive Division also has active conservation activities with plenty of options for visitors to learn more about marine biology and the center's eco efforts, which I think is great!

In 2018 I did the IDC on Curacao at the Dive Division location Blue Bay Dive which was a great course to do and next to learning it’s also important to have fun. I do recommend taking the IDC course and I would do it again at Blue Bay Dive, Curacao.

I chose to do the PADI internship on Curacao, where I joined the team to gain experience. Awesome teacher, but an even better mentor! Your best case scenario for becoming a PADI Pro is at Blue Bay Dive with Master Instructor Sharon.
