Join our team

PADI SCUBA Instructors & Divemasters - recruitment for Spring / Summer 2022/23 opens in August 2022!


Waiheke Dive & Snorkel is an award winning located on the stunning Waiheke Island; we were recipients of the Qualmark 100% Pure New Zealand Experience Award 2021. 

We believe in engaging with our community, and are active in local sustainability and conservation projects and we regularly run dive against debris events. 

We are NZ's only completely no take & conservation focused 'full service' dive shop. Our market is a mixture of Kiwis from all over NZ and Waiheke locals.

We’re proudly a small business, with a small team and a local feel, so all of us get hands on and stuck in with whatever needs to be done.

About you

As an Instructor then you may be conducting a DSD with clients visiting Waiheke in the morning and then snorkelling with a school group in the afternoon, or perhaps a private 1 to 1 open water course with a VIP Island guest.

As a Divemaster, you may be guiding clients on a shore dive in the morning, and then in the water for a guided snorkelling tour in the afternoon. 

The ideal candidate will have great people skills, an infinite passion for our oceans (particularly in conserving them - if you’re all about hunting then we’re not the dive shop for you!) with the ability to receive and communicate important information effectively.

You will need to be adaptable and able to give 100% to every customer that you engage with.

We're a busy shop, so you do need to be able to thrive under pressure and operate independently while maintaining our high standards of customer service and safety first approach to activities. 

You must be / hold;

  • an in-status PADI Instructor or Divemaster.
  • Hold a relevant and valid Certificate of Competence (C.O.C)
  • Have an Occupational Diver Medical Clearance 
  • a full NZ driving licence
  • have the right to work in NZ. 
  • Fully vaccinated against COVID-19.
  • Happy to work weekends

In return, we offer a fun and engaging workplace with a stunning office for you to enjoy, awesome perks and fair remuneration. We will assist with ferry costs for those living in Auckland, so please don't let that be a barrier.

Staff pricing on dive gear is very generous (we’re dealers for Scubapro, Mares, Shearwater and so much more) and there's plenty of other adventures to be had! 

Please send a C.V. and covering letter to
