Looking for a Dutch or American PADI Instructor

Do you want to work on a beautiful Caribbean Island with year round diving?

To save your time and ours, please note that we will only respond to applicants with Dutch or American passports who meet the role requirements.

The Dive Bus is Curacao’s #1 PADI 5 Star IDC Centre and 100% AWARE Dive Center, thanks in no small part to our awesome PADI instructors.

Besides guiding dives on our stunning house reef and around the island, and teaching PADI dive courses from DSD to DM, you’ll also be involved with retail sales, reservations, admin, logistics, equipment maintenance, taking care of the building, grounds and vehicles, and a whole bunch of things we haven’t even thought of yet. You will also have the opportunity to build on your current PADI Teaching status during our IDC’s.
