Do you have what it takes to be a leader in diving?

We operate a dive charter vessel on the beautiful Gold Coast ex Runaway Bay Marina. Our specialty is certified diving at our local reefs and wrecks on 4 days per week. We are always looking for friendly and capable divers for the role of in-water dive guide. For this purpose, we have 3 roles available.

1. Paid Divemaster
2. Volunteer Dive Guides
3. Divemaster Internship

Paid Divemasters

To be considered for this role, you must be available on a set roster including midweek on a permanent basis (no excuses). The only reason why we hire and pay a dive guide is for the sake of consistency in our operation and for the difficulty in finding suitable candidates that can cover our midweek trips. If you can’t commit to this ongoing engagement, then you may still qualify for our volunteer roles. Further requirements for a paid position are.

– Be a friendly and healthy person with a professional attitude,
– Be great with customers,
– Be a PADI Divemaster in active status or higher,
– Possess a Drivers License,
– Possess current Oxygen Provider Certificate,
– Possess current First Aid and CPR Certificate,
– Be available preferably on Wednesday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

If you are interested in this role, please email us. See contact details below.

Volunteer Dive Guides

If you are passionate about diving and enjoy taking the lead, then our volunteer dive guide roles are made for you. Enjoy diving for free plus other benefits such as free air fills, free gear hire and dive gear at whole sale rates. In return you will lead a small group of divers, usually no more than 5 whilst on our tours and help us with preparation and clean-up afterwards. To be suitable for this role, you should be available on weekends at least once per month or more. You also should be proactive and keep asking us for opportunities. We can’t chase you. You need to chase us! Further requirements are;

– Be an experienced diver,
– Be a confident diver even in challenging conditions,
– Be a good underwater navigator
– Be physically capable
– Be good with customers
– Be self motivated

To be clear, you are not expected to be a Divemaster or Dive Supervisor. You are purely a piece of mind for divers in order to help them with local orientation. Email us if you are interested.

We are combining three exciting brands under one roof; Gold Coast Dive Adventures, Sea the Gold Coast and The Scuba Coach.
