The PADI Bubblemaker program, for children aged 8 and above, is a great way to introduce kids to scuba diving in a pool in less than 2 metres of water.
Children are given the chance to discover the exciting world of scuba diving in a three part experience, lasting around 90 minutes in total:
Pool dive: Under constant supervision, kids take their first breaths underwater, then practice swimming and playing cool games like underwater frisbee.
Debriefing: A few safety reminders, followed by presentation of a special Bubblemaker certificate, card and logbook
