It’s Childs Play…


PADI Bubblemaker

Children from 8yrs can participate in the PADI Bubblemaker program…

This is a super way for kids to experience the sensation of weightlessness, having fun underwater using mini sets of SCUBA gear. Conducted in controlled conditions with restricted depth, under very close supervision (max 2:1 students to instructor).

Kids will enjoy the thrill of being under the surface and breathing bubbles, whilst we play games and discover more about the aquatic environment and marine wildlife. The Bubblemaker program invloves a safety briefing for students & parents and a 30min dive in the shallow pool.

PADI Seal Team

PADI Seal Team

This is quite simply awesome !
After enjoying a BubbleMaker dive – kids can progress to the deeper pool when they’re ready to learn key skills from the PADI Open Water course – which over 5 sessions ( we recommend once a month ) earns them their first PADI Diver certification card.

The SEAL TEAM program involves a series of 5 “AquaMissions” – Scuba Dives in a pool that help build aquatic confidence, teach responsibility and generate an understanding of marine conservation – and it is brilliant fun too !
Coordinated to fit individual diaries, the program is usually 1:1 [max 2:1] with an instructor on a Sunday afternoon – check the calendar for available dates.
When kids graduate the SEAL program – they always find the full PADI Open Water Diver course much less difficult when they turn 10yrs old.

Beyond the SEAL TEAM there are a series of Specialty Aquamissions – which continue the adventure and the learning curve towards earning the prestigeous and very rare qualification as a

Pool Parties

What an amazing idea for a Birthday Bash !
We can cater for groups of 6 – 12 kids for a Discover Scuba Party…
Minimum age for the DSD is 10yrs.

Together for one briefing – then split into groups of up to 6 ( max 2 groups ) for the diving experience.
This can also be linked in to have a Birthday meal at the Lesiure Centre after the dives…

We also do BubbleMaker parties for 8 – 9 yrs, but group size is up to 4 ( again max 2 groups )

Birthday parties are on Sunday afternoons, meeting at Blue Ocean Dive Centre at 2pm for kit sizing and a talky-teachy lesson – then in the pool from 3.30pm : call well in advance – this is popular !

Discover Scuba Diving

PADI Discover Scuba Diving

You can do a “Try Dive” on a PADI Discover Scuba Diving program if you’re 10 years old…
– It’s EASY & it’s FUN!

With a brief talky teachy bit in the classroom, then some dive skills in the shallow pool before progressing deeper for fun and games at the bottom…

This is the same program that grown-ups do : and if you do well in the pool you could go on to get your PADI International Divers License : COOL !
