Has your child always wanted to try scuba diving? 

Bubblemakers gives them the chance to be able to breath under water for the first time, in water shallower than 2m (6ft).

The fun and friendly session, [which lasts approximately 1 ½ hours], introduces them to the thrill of the underwater experience as well as basic Do’s and Don’ts of underwater breathing and water safety. 

Participants will receive a basic introduction to scuba equipment and learn how to clear their own mask and regulator of water.

Perfect for an introduction or a party with friends/family.

Sessions are led by a PADI Professional Instructor or Dive Master.

 

Any Requirements to Join?

All participants must be at least 8 years old and comfortable in the water. They should be able to swim a minimum of 20 metres unaided. 

Parent/Guardian permission is also required – though they don’t need to be present the whole session. (watching is welcomed!)

 

After a Bubblemaker introduction if you want to dive with us some more successful Bubblemakers carry on and complete their PADI Seal Team course to learn more skills in the water.

Whether your child has completed their Bubblemaker introduction or simply eager to start; the PADI Seal Team is for young scuba divers, looking for action packed fun.

An introductory course consists of multiple sessions covering 5 exciting AquaMissions. Your child will experience breathing and swimming underwater, how their scuba equipment works and how to store and look after it correctly.

They will also learn basic scuba diving skills that they may need in an emergency as well as about the wildlife that lives in the ocean and how they can help protect it for the future.

Your child will also receive an introductory pack, with a log book for them to record their dives as well as some reading for them to do at home.

On completion of all 5 AquaMissions (and a test of their knowledge), Seal Team Members will receive their PADI certificate and card – an internationally accepted recognition of their skills!

Eventually their experience may also possibly count towards their PADI Open Water Course once your child is old enough to participate.
