When investing in becoming a Divemaster, obviously, you want to choose the best! You also want to select the one that will give you the most experience to get the most out of your training. Learning to become a divemaster in Komodo will present many different challenges and situations which will give you extensive and valuable experience which will stay with you for life. You know what they say “if you can dive in Komodo, you can dive anywhere!” We say “if you get your Divemaster in Komodo, working in diving anywhere else will be a doddle!”.
So that’s why you should choose Komodo, but why should you choose Uber Scuba? At Uber Scuba we provide a supreme program lead by highly experienced professionals in a serious yet fun, friendly and safe environment.

“After wanting to do my dive master training at somewhere not only challenging but also has great marine biodiversity, I decided to come to Komodo. I’m more than grateful that Uber scuba took me in and I absolutely had the best diving time of my life! A couple of months before my arrival, I emailed several dive shops and Uber Scuba gave by far the most detailed information and the fastest reply! Jessika was really patient with my question bombs and was the only person that suggested me to walk in and talk to the dive shop before I commit into such a lengthy program. If anyone wonders the same, please just book ahead, I guarantee you they are the best in town!! Upon my arrival, I was given another detailed briefing on the divemaster course itself and the professionalism of the shop was just beyond the limit! The office ladies, Tanya, Cristina and Charlie and the little boss cookie the monster had been really welcoming and helpful!! Their passion for not only helping people picking their right choices but also always having customers’ safety as top priority assures that everyone on the boat is having a great time! All the instructors (Kev, Fikih, Tom, Paul, Diego) and divemasters (Faldy, Rian, Jordan, Ody, Afri) make Uber the way it is! They know Komodo by heart and will show you the biodiversity of the park as well as putting safety as top priority. Each and every one of them is very knowledgeable and passionate about the ocean and are willing to share all the information with everyone. The boat crew was probably the best crew I’ve ever encountered! The food on the boat was so amazing that I’ve missed it on my day offs. They are willing to help you with the gear as well as getting in and out of the water. Gino, Wiro, Yima, Yasin, Tayep and many many more, without whom our daily routine wouldn’t be as smooth and wonderful as it is now. It’s been about two weeks since I left and I absolutely miss diving there already! Can’t wait to come back to more laughs and amazing dives! Thanks so much for such an awesome summer break!!“

“I recently completed my PADI Divemaster training (DMT) with Uber Scuba Komodo and it was 6 incredible weeks: great learning experience and lots of fun at the same time. The dive center is very busy and very well organized which means each task is clearly defined and everyone knows what to do and when. Great structure to discover the diving industry!! Uber Scuba number one priority is “SAFETY FIRST!!” From day 1 you are treated as part of the team and the daily tasks include: welcoming guests to introduce the dive center and the diving programs; preparing equipment, doing briefings on the boat; learning about dive sites, marine life and currents; assisting instructors/dive masters and… DIVING a lot. I did over 100 dives in 6 weeks!! The staff is very friendly and professional, they will treat you as part of their family and they will try to teach you as many things as they can. The diving in Komodo National Park is out of this world and you will surely love it! Get ready to play with manta rays, sharks and turtles on a daily basis. There are also very high chances that you become what we call a “current junky” which means addicted to drift dive! I am extremely satisfied by the decision I took to do my DMT with Uber Scuba Komodo and to have Kevin as my mentor. I highly recommend this DMT program as well as all the other diving courses to anyone looking for a fun and professional training.“
