PADI Seal Team – Just for the Kids!
The PADI Seal Team is for young divers who are looking for action-packed fun in a pool by doing exciting scuba AquaMissions.
Have you ever wondered what it’s like to dive with flashlights, take digital photographs underwater or float effortlessly like an astronaut? These are AquaMissions that introduce kids to wreck, navigation, buoyancy, underwater photography, environmental awareness programmes and more.
Here is their chance to do some cool stuff in the pool, meet great new friends and share in the adventure of the underwater world.
In addition, it provides parents with a structured program that lets their children develop scuba skills while learning about the aquatic environment and having a lot of good, clean fun. This is also an excellent way to introduce your youngsters to scuba diving prior to full signing up to the full PADI Open Water Diver certification.
What will I do?
The PADI Seal Team program is broken into two parts.
Part one, AquaMissions 1 – 5, teaches kids the basics of diving – things like buoyancy control, mask clearing, regulator recovery, etc.
After building a solid foundation of scuba skills, they move on to part two.
This is where we introduce the full range of specialty AquaMissions, which usually last about a couple of hours. The best part of the Specialty AquaMissions is they reinforce save diving skills while they are having fun. PADI Seals get to sample a wide variety of dives.
Children use all the basic scuba gear, which is made for their size and stature.
