independent instructor program

Pura Vida Divers is dedicated to supporting you on your journey as a dive professional. We want you to have the best resources at your fingertips as you grow your career. Because of this, we offer exclusive discounts and promotions to our alumni through our Independent Instructor Program. 

program benefits

When you become an Open Water Scuba Instructor you can teach independently, rather than through a dive shop. While there are many pros to this, it can become costly. To help our alumni with operating costs, we offer exclusive discounts to former students of our programs.

Pura Vida Divers is proud to offer its instructor alumni discounts on charters, rental gear, facility use, and more. These discounts apply to both you and your students. We also have a commission program that you can take advantage of should you assist your students in purchasing gear at our shop.
