Dive instructor internship

The PADI Instructor internship packages in Kenya with Ocean Tribe are designed for all starting levels from beginners working up, to Rescue Divers starting their Pro Training.

The internships cover a range of courses including your core PADI Diver Courses from Open Water to Rescue Diver but also first aid courses, specialty diver courses, and the pro-level PADI Divemaster and PADI IDC courses, when you learn to work in scuba diving.

You can even learn to teach non-diving courses with the Emergency First Response Instructor program, meaning you can offer first aid training around the world outside diving. This is coupled with work experience along the way in the African paradise destination of Diani Beach and other Kenyan hotspots.

Our combination of dive courses ensures that you emerge from the internship as a very well-qualified dive professional.
