What is a Divemaster?

Divemaster is PADI's first professional-level qualification (there are equivalent levels with SSI or BSAC). It mainly qualifies you to conduct dive tours with certified divers, but it also enables you to assist instructors in teaching the courses you have completed, and to perform various other supervisory roles. It teaches you to be the guy in charge: you'll plan the dive, brief the divers, lead them and point out the underwater sights, deal with any issues, and bring them all back safely. The increased standard of your abilities also allows you to dive to the maximum recreational depth of forty metres.

Alcohol, anonymity, exotic locations and a lack of inhibitions; it's going to happen. Holding hands you stumble back to your hostel, stealing glances, the occasional kiss and then it occurs to you; where do we go? Hostel sex is one of those topics that a lot...
