Children have a natural spirit of adventure, and can gain water confidence and competence by participating in snorkelling, skin diving and scuba diving experiences.

From just eight years of age, young underwater enthusiasts can try their hand and scuba diving and start working in the swimming pool environment to master scuba skills with the PADI Bubblemaker experience and Seal Team programme. Older children can complete the same PADI Discover Scuba Diving introductory diving experience as adults, and can earn a full scuba qualification with the PADI (Junior) Open Water Diver course.
