Reach the pinnacle...

Master Scuba Diver

Master Scuba Diver

The Master Scuba Diver rating is what every serious recreational scuba diver should be aiming for.  It is the pinnacle of the PADI recreational dive ladder.

The MSD rating places you in an elite group of respected divers who have earned this rating through both significant experience and scuba training. Fewer than two percent of divers ever achieve this rating. When you flash your Master Scuba Diver card, people know that you’ve spent time underwater in a variety of environments and had your share of dive adventures.

FREE MSD application

At Aquatic Adventures, your PADI Master Scuba Diver application is FREE.

We believe that, once you've completed all the pre-requisites, you've definitely earned your Master Scuba Diver rating, and therefore you shouldn't have to pay more for it.

With all our Master Scuba Diver students, the PADI fees for your certification and your MSD card are waived.

Every diver, who is at least 12 years old, should aim for Master Scuba Diver.  You earn it by completing the following:

At Aquatic Adventures we won the PADI award for the most Master Scuba Divers qualified in Victoria in 2018, and this is because we dedicate a lot of time to helping our customers build their dive skills and undertake the training they want to do to grow their diving.
