The PADI Bubblemaker course is designed to give children between the ages of 8 and 10 their first experience of scuba diving.
The PADI Bubblemaker course is one session lasting an hour in one our heated pools during which your child will be talked through the equipment and safety protocols by one of our highly trained PADI instructors before putting on the scuba equipment and going for a swim around underwater.
Once your child feels comfortable underwater with the scuba equipment they will be given the chance to play around with some of the toys underwater or do some handstands or rollypoleys and generally have a bit of fun while scuba diving.
To ensure your child enjoys the experience while being safe each class size is limited to 4 children at a time and you will always have at least one PADI IDCS instructor in the pool with the children at all times.
What will your child learn?
Bubblemakers get a chance to:
· Experience scuba diving under the direct care and supervision of a PADI Pro.
· Take their first breaths underwater in water shallower than 2 metres/6 feet.
· Learn about and use scuba diving equipment made for children – not adults.
· Have lots of fun.
Once they have tried scuba diving for the first time and decided that they like it they can move on to the next stage which is either the full PADI open water course, for children over the age of 10, or the padi seal team course for those who are not yet old enough to scuba dive outside
