Scuba Diving For Kids
With their natural curiosity and likeness to learn new skills, kids can make some of the best scuba divers. Dahab, with its calm and pristine waters, is one of the best places to train and dive with the younger ones.
At Scuba Seekers we love to teach children to scuba and we offer a wide range of activities and courses for them.
PADI BUBBLEMAKER PROGRAM
The PADI Bubblemaker is a fantastic introduction to diving for children aged 8 to 11 years old. The aim is to give them their first taste of the underwater world in a safe and controlled environment. We’ll make sure your kids have a lot of fun, but safety is paramount, which is why their depth is restricted to 2m and why they will be constantly supervised by one of our experienced instructors at all times, both in and out of the water.
The Bubblemaker course is a great way for kids to experience weightlessness and all the fun that comes from moving underwater, as well as to see some of the incredible life in the Red Sea’s shallow reefs. It’s a truly unforgettable experience and one that’s likely to spark a lifelong passion in the underwater world.
PADI JUNIOR COURSES
PADI Junior is the chance for the younger members of the family to join the fun of scuba diving or even start the trend!
The PADI Junior courses are similar to the adult certification programmes and prepares kids to become fully fledged divers when they are of age. To ensure that junior divers don’t exceed their limits, each course come with restrictions. First of all they are submitted to a restriction in their maximum depth.
- PADI Junior Scuba Diver (12m)
- PADI Junior Open Water Diver (12m)
- PADI Junior Advanced Open Water Diver (21m)
Second of all there is a restriction in who they are allowed to dive with once they are certified. Divers 10-11 years old must dive with a PADI Professional or a certified parent or guardian. Divers 12-14 years old must dive with a certified adult.
Once they turn 15 their scuba diving certification will automatically get updated to the same standards as the adult one.
PADI SPECIALTY COURSES & KIDS
Learning to dive is just the beginning. There are a huge variety of speciality fields within scuba diving, with many having their own speciality course.
Young divers can join specialty courses such as Dry Suit, Underwater Photography, Night Diver or Peak Performance Buoyancy.
