Scuba Activities for Kids 8 - 17 years old.
Programs for kids to learn, grow, dive and thrive!
Nationally recognized as a leader in diving programs for kids 8 to 17 years old, Aquatic Realm offers a variety of Scuba Diving activities for kids. As a non-contact, non-competitive sport our full range of programs will allow your child to develop self confidence, a passion about the environment, new friends and responsibility. Scuba diving often leads to career choices in education, research, aerospace, military and public service work. This is one of the few sports that will follow your child into adulthood and beyond. This is truly the perfect family activity that will adapt as your family grows and changes.
For the 8 & 9 year old:
They are ready to learn and try new things but still need close supervision in their activities. Naturally drawn to the water, the Bubblemaker and Seal Team activities are the perfect place to start. The Bubblemaker Experience is a one time pool dive in 6 ft of water that offers an opportunity to play games and blow bubbles. They wear gear sized just for them and are supervised by highly trained professionals. The Bubblemaker Program offers the opportunity to learn some diving skills and attend three addtional scheduled dive club pool activities. The PADI Seal team is the next step after a Bubblemaker when the child is ready for the acacemic portion of diving and addtional dive skill training. The PADI Seal Team is a structured class that prepares to attend shcheduled club dives for all types of learning experieinces.
For the 10 + year old:
While 10 year olds can earn the PADI Junior Open Water Diver Certficaiton, with restrictions, not all 10 year olds are ready for that step. We offer a program that is exclusive to Aquatic Realm. Written and developed by Lynn Wickline, owner and Course Director, the Underwater Explorer Program offers multiple ways for this age group to dive. The program uses the educational materials from the Open Water Diver Course so the child can enter the program initially and dive in a pool environment until they are ready for certificaiton or they can enroll after the certification to keep their dive skills sharp and meet other kids their age at monthly club dives.
