The Bazaruto Archipelago National Park (BANP) is one of the best locations in the world
3. Engage in marine science
As BCSS’s primary mission is to conduct research, you will experience what it is like to live and work in a marine research station. With daily research expeditions by boat and lab work being done on a continuous basis, there is plenty of opportunity to learn more about subjects like environmental issues, the Ocean Observatory and shark tagging. Our residential scientists are happy to show you what their work looks like on a day-to-day basis.
Becoming a professional diver opens up a whole new world, quite literally! As a dive master, you will be a leader and take charge of diving activities; whether it’s a recreational dive in the tropics or assisting scuba classes in a pool in Europe. As you will gain extensive dive knowledge and supervision abilities during your twelve-week training, afterwards you will be able to work as a dive professional and turn your favorite activity into a career. You will be qualified to work at dive centers, resorts, NGOs and even on yachts that cross the globe.
At BCSS, we like to thoroughly walk you through every part of the course with attention. This is why we only offer the Dive Master Internship as a three-month long commitment. Our dive instructor Mauro will make sure you are always safe and comfortable in the water and will be able to repeat segments of the course as often as needed. He will walk you through the dive master book and explain the theory during classroom sessions. As for the diving itself, he will make sure you can execute every skill perfectly and understand every part of the practical tests.
6. BCSS is a 5-star PADI Center
The research station is a 5-Star PADI Dive Center, ensuring high quality training and equipment. To gain a 5-star PADI Dive Center Certification, a dive center needs to provide a full range of PADI scuba diving education programs, exciting experience opportunities and equipment in excellent condition, while encouraging responsible diving practices and promoting marine life sustainability. BCSS has a test tank to conduct confined water training, and a comfortable RIB boat (001 Expedition) to bring you to the best dive sites.
7. Great value for money
Where average dive centers charge a separate price for the course, PADI fees, equipment rental, accommodation, food and transportation, BCSS offers a clear package that includes all of this for a minimal price. Once you arrive on Benguerra Island, there is no need to pay for anything else (unless you choose to take on another course e.g.) during your twelve-week stay. Our in-house chefs cook three nutritious and delicious meals a day and the sustainable accommodations is comfortable and includes daily housekeeping.
