Scuba Diving in St Kitts

Dive Boat Calm Seas

Here in St Kitts the weather is very reliable, we have sunshine almost everyday.

St Kitts scuba diving visibility is excellent, usually in the 60ft (18m) plus range.
Water temperatures are warm enough for a 3mm suit, up to 84° in summer, down to 79° in winter. (26°-.28°C)
St Kitts scuba diving is on the well sheltered Caribbean (leeward) side of the island.
Strong currents here in St Kitts are virtually unknown, this makes for ideal conditions for both beginners and experienced scuba divers alike.

What is a Master Instructor?

Every Padi Instructor starts out as an "Open Water Scuba Instructor"
After further training they will become "Padi Master Scuba Diver trainers" (MSDT)
The Padi Master Instructor is unique in the Padi system - it is the only one you cannot earn by taking a training course.
After qualifying as an IDC Staff Instructor, you must have at least 2 years experience as an Instructor PLUS certify at least 150 students across all courses AND have certified a minimum of 10 EFR students. In addition you have to attend Padi seminars and demonstrate a complete understanding of the Padi system of teaching.

What Padi Says about Master Instructors.

"PADI Master Instructors are recognized as elite scuba diving educators who, through dedication and hard work, have proven to be dive industry leaders. You earn the Master Instructor rating by exemplifying what it means to be a scuba diving professional through your teaching efforts and professional conduct."
