    EXPERIENCED certified DIVE MASTERS and INSTRUCTORS to join us for the whole season (October-April) or for a minimum of 6 weeks. We are currently not taking newly qualified dive masters sorry.

We need you to work as a staff member and get involved in everything, please not to treat it as just a holiday which we have experienced.

    In exchange we will offer you a friendly and relaxed environment, along with free accommodation and traditional Sri Lankan breakfast (bread and dhal) and lunch (rice and curry) on your working days. We can also provide you with basic necessities such as tea, sugar, salt, oil, etc

    Unawatuna really gives you the chance to experience the hustle and bustle of the Sri Lankan culture, but also take some time out on some quiet beaches or inland forest areas when needed. Unawatuna beach is a very fun place to be in the season and there's always something going on like live music, cultural dance shows, cooking classes, beach parties and more! We would love to have a like minded person joining us who is open, carefree and fun. We also know diving can be very tiring so do not worry, you are not expected to continue your day with us when you are finished.. please spend your free time how you want!

    The diving school is also connected to a beautiful beach restaurant serving all kinds of food and good vibes.
