Age 10 - 15: Junior Open Water
Junior Fun Diver Experience (non license)
Junior Scuba Diving sessions are a lot of fun. These take place in the pool which has a shallow end and a not so shallow end which, at its deepest, is about five and a half feet deep.
The initial trial session is called Bubblemaker where we have a lot of fun putting on the Scuba Diving gear and trying breathing and swimming underwater for the first time in the pool under the close supervision (direct supervision) of a PADI Instructor. Beyond Bubblemaker is the PADI Seal team where we play games and practice skills underwater.
Kids can experience Bubblemaker from the age of 8 upwards.
It is also possible to arrange Kid’s pool diving parties.
The PADI Bubblemaker is specially for the 8 - 10 year old who wants to try Scuba. It includes all equipment and tuition from a PADI Instructor. A Presentation souvenir pack is available for the student to keep.This includes a
water toy, a towel , transfers and stickers and a signed certificate.
After the Bubblemaker many kids thego on to join the PADI Seal Team.
PADI Bubblemaker Pool Parties
Scuba Pool Parties are available for the 8-12 year old. They will get to experience full scuba diving underwater in the pool under the direct supervision of PADI Instructors and certified Assistants.
Under 8’s can snorkel with the divers.
