Diving Courses for Kids

PADI Bubblemaker

What a great way to introduce children to scuba diving in a pool in less than six feet of water. Celebrate a birthday by throwing a memorable, exciting Bubblemaker party with friends and family at your local PADI dive shop or resort. It’s fun, easy and safe. Youngsters can join in the family fun of scuba diving or even start a trend! Children should be comfortable in the water, but they don’t have to be super swimmers. With youngsters in mind, the maximum depth is only 2 metres/ 6 feet. Typical sessions last about an hour (sign up, gear up and fun included).

Prerequisites: Must be aged 8 or above.

The Course: Kids get a chance to:

  • Experience what scuba diving is like under the direct care and supervision of PADI Instructors.
  • Take their first breath underwater,

Maximum Depth: 2 metres.

Equipment: Children use all the basic scuba gear, which is made for their size and stature.

Materials: Ready to blow bubbles? The Bubblemaker crewpack gives kids a memento of their visit to the underwater world and is full of fun surprises. The pack includes: a kid-sized beach towel, log book, certificate, temporary tattoo emblem and the adorable and a popular Bubblemaker “action figure.” Adults love them, too.

What's Next? Bubblemakers can continue the adventure to complete AquaMissions during the Seal Team program. Those who are 10-14 years old can take the Junior PADI Open Water Diver course and may want to pursue other advanced kids courses.

 

PADI Seal Team

The PADI Seal Team is for young divers who are looking for action-packed fun in a pool by doing exciting scuba AquaMissions.

Have you ever wondered what it's like to dive with flashlights, take digital pictures underwater or float effortlessly like an astronaut? These are AquaMissions that introduce you to wreck, navigation, buoyancy, underwater photography, environmental awareness and more. Here's your chance to do some cool stuff in the pool, meet friends and share in the adventure of the underwater world. The best part of the Specialty AquaMissions is they reinforce save diving skills while the kids are having fun. PADI Seals get to sample a wide variety of dives. In addition, it provides parents with a structured program that lets their children develop skills, learn about the aquatic environment and have a lot of good, clean fun. This is also an excellent way to introduce kids to scuba diving prior to full Open Water Diver certification.

Prerequisites: Must be at least 8 years old.

The Course: The PADI Seal Team program is broken into two parts. Part one, AquaMissions 1 - 5, teaches kids the basics of diving - things like buoyancy control, mask clearing, regulator recovery, etc. After building a solid foundation of scuba skills, kids move on to part two. Part two is full of specialty AquaMissions, which usually last about an hour. PADI Seal Team:

  • Helps children learn responsibility
  • Teaches children about the aquatic environment
  • Is a fun pool-only experience
  • Is conducted by certified, trained PADI Professionals

Maximum Depth: 2-4 metres.

Equipment: Children use all the basic scuba gear, which is made for their size and stature.
