Kids Scuba Programs

Even kids can learn about the underwater world of the Caribbean, with a variety of PADI® programs developed to teach them about scuba diving and preserving the underwater environment. Kids Scuba programs are available for an additional cost.

the PADI Bubblemaker Experience

What a great way to introduce children to scuba diving in a pool in less than six feet of water. Celebrate a birthday by throwing a memorable, exciting Bubblemaker party with friends and family at your local PADI dive shop or resort. It's fun, easy and safe.

*Minimum Age Requirement: 8 years old

The Fun Part

Youngsters can join in the family fun of scuba diving or even start a trend! Children should be comfortable in the water, but they don't have to be super swimmers. With youngsters in mind, the maximum depth is only 2 metres/ 6 feet.

  • Typical sessions last about an hour (sign up, gear up and fun included)
  • Also available as an open water experience ( 2 meters / 6 feet max depth)

Kids get a chance to:

  • Experience what scuba diving is like under the direct care and supervision of PADI instructors.
  • Take their first breath underwater..
  • Learn about and use scuba diving equipment made for children – not adults.

The Scuba Gear You Use:

  • Children use all the basic scuba gear which is made for their size and stature.
  • Check with your local dive shop about setting up a Bubblemaker today.
