Kids can dive too!

Don’t Forget…Kids can dive too!

PADI BubblemakerPADI Dive Courses for Kids for kids as young as 8 yrs.

Taking the first plunge…

Both Narima Diving and Scubafish (Ko Lanta, Krabi) offer dive training courses to kids. Children as young as 5 can get a glimpse of underwater fun by trying out the scuba gear and have a splash around on the surface of a pool.

Eight year olds can begin to learn diving by taking part in the PADI Bubblemaker program – an introductory course to SCUBA diving in a controlled envionment (2 meters maximum depth).

From 10 years up, kids can participate in the PADI Discover SCUBA program or even apply for the Junior Open Water Certification (12 meters maximum depth). These courses take 1-2 days and are closely supervised by a PADI instructor.

As a splurge, I got my kids the Bubblemaker dive instruction available at the Narima dive shop. They spent an afternoon learning to scuba dive in the pool, then actually dived in the open ocean with a dive master attached just to them. They could only dive to a depth of 2 meters, but that was plenty to see huge numbers of fish, including a moray eel, barracudas, sergeant major fish and a Christmas tree worm.

I was only sorry we didn’t have a few more days at the resort before we had to go home. It all seems like a beautiful dream.
