Master Diver vs. Dive Master

The two terms, Master Diver and Dive Master, sound very similar, but they are quite different.

The progression of certifications along the path to the to Rescue Diver is: Open Water, Advanced Open Water then Rescue Diving. Once you have achieved the level of Rescue Diving you can consider progressing on to Dive master or Master Diver.

Master scuba divers is the highest level an amateur scuba diver can hold. Note, the “amateur” designation has to do with the fact that Master divers, unlike Dive masters are not diving as a profession.
