With their natural curiosity and ability to quickly master new skills, children often make some of the best and most relaxed scuba divers. The Diving World centers at Beachcomber Resorts & Hotels are ideally equipped to teach children to dive, thanks to child-sized equipment carefully selected dive sites.
A good way to assess whether your child is ready for open water diving is to enroll them in our “Beautiful Discovery” program. This half day experience aims to give kids a taste of diving. First, we take them for a dive in the hotel swimming pool to teach them how to breathe through a regulator. Then, we take them on a shallow sea dive up to a depth of three meters.
The “Beautiful Discovery” program is run by our experienced diving instructors, who carefully supervise the children every step of the way. The programme is suitable for children 12 years and up.
The next step is the PADI Junior Open Water Diver Course. This is similar to the adult Open Water certification program and prepares kids to become full-fledged divers when they come of age. To take part, children must be at least 10 years old and able to swim. Students as young as 10 can even use our e-learning course to complete the theory part of the program. Once they have completed the Junior Open Water Diver Course, junior divers will be issued with a logbook and an international certification card which they can use to dive anywhere in the world.
