Is as far as you can go as a recreational diver, and PADI Divemaster is the first rung of the professional diver ladder. If someone is a Master Scuba Diver, that means he or she has significant experience and scuba training. Fewer than 2% of divers ever achieve this rating, which makes them an elite group.
The PADI Master Scuba Diver rating is not a course in itself, but a set of requirements that need to be met before you can apply:
- 12 years old
- PADI Rescue Diver or Junior Rescue Diver
- Minimum of five PADI Specialty Diver Courses
- Minimum of 50 logged dives
One of the best ways to become an active diver is to experience new and exciting adventures. That, in essence, is what the PADI Master Scuba Diver program is about.
By taking part in the broad range of activities possible with the PADI Master Scuba Diver program, you can explore new dive sites, experience new conditions, meet other divers and even try out different types of equipment and specialty gear.
Most importantly, you can stay active, gain confidence and earn the respect of other divers around you. Upon completion of the challenge you will have the highest non-professional PADI rating in recreational diving.
Along with all these new skills you also get your Master Scuba Diver certification card, a certificate signed by PADI’s President and CEO and a Master Scuba Diver badge.

Evaluation & Medical Forms
The Alegria Provincial Government established a Marine Park Entrance Fee System based on tickets. Tickets are purchased for a fee of 100 Pesos (about 2 $) per dive. The local government will utilise these funds to finance a number of high priority conservation programs in the area, including patrols and enforcement to abolish destructive fishing practices such as blast and cyanide fishing, village improvement programs within the park, collection and disposal of plastic and other wastes entering the park’s waters, marine conservation education of village children and adults, and reef and mangrove rehabilitation. Tickets can be purchased through Sta. Filomena Marine Sanctuary in Alegria or at Alegria Dive Resort. We greatly appreciate your support and cooperation with this entrance fee system. Conservation of Sta. Filomena’s spectacular marine habitats requires funding, and your entrance fee is a valuable contribution to saving Alegria’s reefs.
