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.

Been a busy few days at Viewpoint, with dive against debris dives, project aware course, and a digital photograph level 1 to 2 upgrade course, well done to Blaise for doing them all, keep collecting the rubbish from the sea.
At viewpoint diving we are a 100% project aware centre and have adopted Portmellon as our dive against debris main site, so are always collecting the odd bit of rubbish on every dive, and donate £10 to project aware for every certification we put through to Padi.
We have noticed due to divers collecting the rubbish from the sea and 3 bays and Sas beach cleans along with more people recycling and using the rubbish bins, Portmellon is a lot cleaner than it was under the water keep up all the good work everybody.

Nice little 54 min dive on southern reef at Portmellon, visibility well down due to SE winds and bit choppy getting in, but all in all a great dive.
Club dive tomorrow visibility should be better and sea flatter due to wind changing to Sw. See you all tomorrow.
