Want to become a PADI Professional?

The first step to becoming a PADI Pro is to become a PADI Dive Master. 

We offer PADI Pro courses from Dive Master all the way to Open Water Scuba Instructor!

Aqua Windie's is a PADI 5 Star Instructor Development Center and offered their first Instructor Development Course in January 2023!

PADI  Instructor Development Course

The first Aruba IDC program  with Pro Dive Vibes  took place in January 2023. 


It was a big success with all 5 Instructor Candidates passing the IE! 

We are ready to plan the next IDC! Would you like to become a PADI Instructor or advanced your current instructor training?

Contact Aqua Windie's or Pro Dive Vibes for more details!


Lead the Adventure as a Dive Master!

Are you ready to dive like a pro? If you love a challenge and want to expand your diving knowledge and underwater skills beyond that of a recreational diver, then the PADI® Divemaster course is for you.


Think PADI Divemaster is only for those who want to work as dive professionals? Think again. While it is true the Divemaster course can help prepare you for a career in diving, many divers take the Divemaster course to enhance their own dive experiences. These divers want to hone their skills and techniques to be better divers – while also becoming the diver others look up to.

Dive Master courses are offered all year and take 2-6 weeks to complete.

Total cost of the course is $1250 including eLearning and crew pack.


PADI fees are additional and paid directly to PADI at the time of application.


Assistant Instructor

The first step to becoming an OWSI

Do you want to be part of the PADI instructor team?

The Assistant Instructor Course is perfect for those who are thinking about becoming an OWSI. 

This course is the first part of the IDC and successfully completing the AI course results in a PADI Assistant Instructor qualification. When an AI is ready to progress, attending an OWSI program allows entry into an IE to earn a full PADI Instructor rating. 

The AI course is taught in English and Dutch by our

two PADI Elite Staff Instructors! 

It is offered 4 times a year.

The total cost is $1150 including eLearning and PADI fees.

to become a PADI  Instructor.

Emergency First Response Instructor

CPR and first aid are key skills that are important to everyone, not just scuba divers. As an Emergency First Response Instructor, you teach skills based on internationally recognized emergency care guidelines, and you can offer courses to anyone.

The only requirements are that you're at least 18 years old and have Emergency First Response Primary and Secondary Care (CPR and First Aid) training within the past 24 months. An EFR Instructor rating is required to become a PADI Instructor, but you don't have to wait until you're ready to go pro. You can complete or refresh this training during your PADI Instructor training.

This course is offered all year and costs $780 including eLearning and PADI fees
