Superb Staff & Course

Clearly a well organised company with very experienced staff.

If you want to be an instructor I'd highly recommend Course Director Bas of Dive Careers,

Great time.

Buddha View is big enough to meet a great variety of people and yet small enough to get to know people. A great place to learn to begin your diving or advance to a diving career! Awesome course directors!

Well Prepared IDC

Was recommended to Mark and Marco by a friend in the dive industry. Was very happy that I went with them instead of one of the bigger centers on the island. Small groups, personalized attention and lots of staff puts them above the others. Was a bit anxious about the IDC, but ended up passing with flying colors. The classroom sessions were balanced with hands on, in the water training, though would have loved a few more remedial day to dive more. All in all, great preparation of the IE. Thanks.

Excellent... Highly Reccomend

I couldn't have been more prepared and confident going into the IE. Already reccomending Dive-Careers.com (Buddha View) to all DM's and DMT's who asked how my IDC went. Information and presentation preparations were done in a way that was easy to achieve and put into use. The facilities were top notch and made for a great study environment. The staff is EXTREMELY competent and professional but keep things very fun to. Without a doubt, you will get out what you put in to your professional development with Dive-Careers.com.

Great fun and learnt a lot!

I've had a lot of fun throughout my Idc and have definitely learnt and improved my own diving skills under the guidance of some top notch course directors and staff instructors. Would recommend this Idc program to anyone I know looking to become an instructor. Onwards to my msdt!!

Course Director Bas- Malapascua

I recently completed my IDC, IE and speciality instructor ratings with Course Director Bas and his wife and Staff Instructor Marie.



I was really impressed with their professionalism, knowledge and the support I received throughout the course. Everything was explained in detail at a reasonable pace, extra time given to parts of the course I was less confident with and they also provide extra advice and help beyond the course itself. I would fully recommend this team for all professional dive courses!

Great teaching, great experience

I chose to complete my DMT, IDC and MSDT with Dive Careers at Buddha View, Koh Tao, as - haveing spent time diving here a year before - I trusted their professionalism, felt at home in the environment and enjoyed the company of the other divers at the centre. The IDC was well run, challenging and enjoyable. The pace was quick enough to maintain interest and motivation, but slow enough to ensure ample opportunity to revise and review areas of weakness. I would highly recommend Dive-Careers/Buddha View to anyone contemplating becoming a PADI Instructor.

Fantastic training

The training at Buddha View with Mark and Marco was really great. I have been very selective about the diving schools for all of my training and I was extremely happy with the IDC.

The classroom sessions were well structured and thorough and I felt it was a very supportive environment. When in the pool and ocean it was always really clear what was expected of the candidates and we were all confident going into the IE. The materials we received go above and beyond what is required and it's really clear through he whole course that we were benefiting from lots and lots of experience.

After care has also been great, the course directors and staff instructors are clearly passionate about what they do and this is a great way to start a professional diving career.



Thanks again guys! I loved every minute :)

Marco was great

I did my IDC/IE through Thresher Shark Divers, Marco Gervaisi was my CD. Marco was great, very helpful, very easy to understand even with the accent. I feel that had i completed the IDC through him at his own premises i would have had better result. I felt that he was held back by thresher Shark Dives.
