PADI Seal Team
The PADI Seal Team program is scuba diving for kids! Young divers between the ages of 8-12 who are looking for action-packed fun in a pool get to complete exciting scuba AquaMissions!
The best part of the Seal Team AquaMissions is that they reinforce safe diving skills while the kids are having fun and making friends. PADI Seals get to sample a wide variety of dives and learn fundamental dive skills in a controlled and safe environment. In addition, it provides parents with a structured program that lets their children develop skills. They also learn about the aquatic environment and have a lot of good, clean fun. This is also an excellent way to introduce kids to scuba diving prior to full Open Water Diver certification.
What will I do?
The PADI Seal Team program teaches responsibility and respect for the aquatic realm. It's broken into two parts.
Part one, AquaMissions 1 - 5, covers basic scuba diving skills. This includes breathing underwater, clearing a mask of water, recovering a regulator and swimming around experiencing the sensation of being weightless. The buddy system also encourages them to form bonds and friendships as they tackle challenges together and share common goals. After building a solid foundation of scuba skills, kids move on to part two.
Part two is the PADI Master Seal Team course. It consists of a series of 10 specialty AquaMissions, each with a different focus -underwater photography, inner-space and night diver being personal favourites! The specialty missions give children an opportunity to explore more specialised dive techniques while continuing to build on their fundamental skills and keeping the learning experience fresh and exciting.
Complete all of these and they'll become a PADI Master Seal Team Member, joining an elite group of young scuba divers.
What scuba gear will I use?
Children use all the basic scuba gear, which is specifically sized for their age and stature with smaller mouthpieces, jackets, fins, wetsuits, and cylinders. All dive gear that is needed is included in all the course options available.
