Especially for Kids

Scuba Classes for Children


Age  8-9: Our youngest divers can take a Bubblemaker class or join the PADI Seal Team. The Bubblemaker program is a one day experience program in a pool or confined water for children eight and older with a max depth of two meters/ six feet. The Seal Team program is a more extensive pool program for kids eight and older that covers basic scuba diving skills in addition to fun activities such as taking underwater photos, practicing buoyancy and learning environmental awareness.


Age 10-11: Divers 10-11 years old can take the Junior Open Water Certification. Once certified, they must dive with a PADI Professional or a certified parent or guardian, and dives cannot exceed 12 meters/40 feet. Divers above age 10 can also become Adventure Divers by completing three Adventure Dives from the specialty list below.


Age 12-14: Divers 12-14 years old can take the Junior Open Water Certification. Once certified, they must dive with a certified adult and dives cannot exceed 18 meters / 60 feet. 12-14 year olds are also eligible to take Junior Rescue, Junior Master Scuba Diver and most specialties.


Age 15-18: 15 year olds can take the standard Open Water class and almost all specialties,


A note about the Junior Open Water Diver Class and Certification: The curriculum for the Junior level class is the same as that of the adult class and we often have both kids and adults in the same class so families can learn together. Your Junior certification can be re-issued as a full Open Water Certification once you reach 15 years of age.
