Activities for young people

SCUBA diving is a great way to teach young people responsibility and care for others as well as an appreciation and awareness of the underwater world. For this reason, we offer PADI accredited courses for children as young as 8, who can enjoy breathing from SCUBA systems in the safety of a warm swimming pool, while learning and developing skills that will get them ready to learn to dive when they are old enough.

We provide two courses specifically designed for age 8 up:

PADI Bubblemaker

PADI Seal Team

However once they reach the age of 10, young people can take a course that will allow them to dive with a PADI Professional or a parent. The Junior Open Water Accreditation is recognised world-wide as is automatially upgraded to a PADI Open Water Accreditation when they reach the age of 15. If you want them to do the Open Water Course in two halves, there is an intermediate PADI SCUBA Diver course available. They can then progress to take the PADI Junior Advanced Open Water Diver from the age of 12 and enjoy numerous speciality courses that are available to those aged between 12 and 15. You child can also gain a PADI Junior Rescue Diver accreditation and when they have completed five specialities, they can become a PADI Master SCUBA Diver, the highest PADI non-professional accreditation available. Of course if they want to become a professional, they can take the PADI Divemaster course when they reach 18 years of age.
