Diving instructor careers start with the first pro SCUBA diving level, which is Divemaster or equiv.  Boracay has some great dive sites to keep your diving instructor careers varied.  There are wrecks, like the Tribird ‘plane above and the Camia, shallow and simple enough for the PADI Wreck Diver and Instructor course.  You may even see a whale shark here!  There is good depth at these sites, at Virgin Drop and the wall at Yapak.  White Beach Boracay is one of the best places to start your dive instructor careers.  There are plenty of dive centres for you to find work after your IDC and begin your diving instructor careers.  Take your IDC with Dan at WaterColors and your diving instructor careers advice will start now.

To commence your diving instructor careers, you will first need to pass an Instructor Examination.  I have a 100 per cent. first-time pass rate at the PADI Instructor Exam.  I keep my class size small and logistics could not be much more easy.  If you are a good fit with Dan’s team and if he needs your skills, then he may hire you.  WaterColors offered work to a diver on Dan’s last IDC on the night of their IE party. 🙂

Many passports get 30-day visas on arrival.  You can get an extension on Boracay.  You can get other visas at overseas consulates.  Working visas and work permits should not impede your diving instructor careers here as much as in other places.

KLO Kalibo Airport on Panay has direct flights from e.g. KUL Kuala Lumpur’s klia2 with AirAsia.  You may also fly to MPH Caticlan from MNL Manila.  A transfer from KLO costs c.PHP 600 Philippine pesos.  For ForEx rates, you can.


You may stay at our 2015 TripAdvisor Travellers’ Choice Award-winning (again 🙂 ) nine-room beachfront boutique hotel, #4 of 190 B&Bs/Inns on Boracay as at the date of this piece and #9 in the Philippines.  This is at Boat Station 1, which is a c.half-hour walk along White Beach from our IDC class at our other store at Station 3.  You may choose to stay at the same hotel as Dan at Station 3.  This has lovely staff, is quiet, with big rooms and comfy beds and pillows, air-con and breakfast, warm water and international TV and book swap.

Begin your diving instructor careers by passing first-time the next PADI IE on Boracay on 9 and 10 October.  PADI will charge you AUD A$785 Australian dollars to sit it.  PADI fees are at for e.g.
