Dive Safety Internship

The Aquarium of the Pacific has Dive Safety internship opportunities year round. These interns will be trained to provide daily support to the staff and volunteer divers above and below the water. Through hands-on training our interns will become competent in the care and maintenance of our dive equipment and learn to supervise and plan safe under water tasks to assist the Dive Safety Officers run daily dive operations.
