PADI Bubblemaker 'Try Dive' Experience for 8-10 year olds - £30
Children are fascinated with the underwater world and the wonders it contains. These are the divers and marine ambassadors of the future so why not encourage them at an early age to get involved in the healthy and exciting hobby that is diving. The sport of scuba diving has come a long way in the last 40 years. With technology the equipment has gotten easier and easier to use. There is even equipment on the market for the small people! The Oxygene Cranleigh Scuba School has 10 complete mini kits that would fit even the smallest 8 year old.
This program takes place in the pool only. Our training pool is at the new Surrey Sports Park. Click here for info on the facility. After changing into a swimsuit its time for a short briefing next to the pool. Our competent PADI Instructor will give the kids a look at the equipment that they will use in the pool and cover the do's and dont's of scuba diving. The kids will enter the shallow end of the pool and be helped into their equipment. After a few tentative breaths, more often than not they take to it like ducks to water! With some underwater games, including an underwater frisbee, the inwater experience takes around an hour. This generally takes place in the shallow end only but can progress to the deep end depending on confidence and comfort of the participants.
Entry to the pool. A Bubblemaker experience with one of our PADI Instructors. All equipment needed including mask, wetsuit, BCD, regulator, fins, tanks and weights. At the end of the session a Bubblemaker Certificate will be issued.

More than likely your child will love this experience and wont stop talking about it for days! So what PADI Scuba Diving courses are available for kids after they have completed the PADI Bubblemaker? For the 8-10 year olds there is a fabulous program called the PADI Seal Team. Run over a series of sessions it teaches kids the basic scuba skills but integrates them into some fun Aqua missions. If your child is coming up to 10 years old then the next stop is the PADI Junior Open Water certification course. The same course as the adult PADI Open Water course...the only difference is some depth and supervision limitations once certified.
