Sportif Dive - diving holidays worldwide

Junior Diving

Bubble Maker Course from £19

Introducing diving to children has never been easier. Specially training staffed can introduce diving with a Bubblemaker course from 8 years. This is designed for children who are confident in the water and allow them to dive up to a depth of 2 metres. Lessons are around 1-2 hours, will show them how the equipment works and gives the opportunity of swimming underwater with an instructor at their side. If they enjoy the experience, children aged between 10 and 14 years may then move onto the Junior Open Water course.

Junior Open Water from £199

Children from 10 years are able to complete the PADI Open Water certification course. They will need to be accompanied either by a PADI professionally qualified diver or a certified parent or guardian. The maximum depth for dives is restricted to 12m/40 feet.

Junior Open Water divers aged between 12 and 14 years of age must dive with an adult with full diving certification to Open Water level.

Prices, course programme and content may vary slightly from centre to centre.
