It’s about the family and the ocean

Get ready to experience the unexpected. Be prepared for the transformation of your family. You will be amazed at how much your kids will pay attention and be present when they know what they are about to see and do, is in real-time, and not going to be replayed to watch on YouTube later.  Family safety is first above all things, and education and fun are top priorities. We just love to go scuba diving, to be honest.

Kids Sea Camp partners with personally selected highly qualified family-friendly PADI 5 Star scuba diving resorts to co-create special family event trips that are 100% focused on family time, family activities, and family dive training.  These trips are for families with kids and grandkids that want to learn to dive, enjoy diving together, and meet other like-minded families. Our trips include room, diving as scheduled, select excursions as scheduled, meals stated, dive training stated for qualified students, kids dive rental gear, private instructors, private boats, and course materials for training courses purchased. Trips can also include other sports, culinary activities, yoga, and blow karting.  Each trip is unique to the destination you choose.

How our families describe what Kids Sea Camp is:

“They are kids scuba camp. They provide the world’s best kids scuba vacations.”

“Kids Sea Camp is a kid dive vacation that adults also get to attend. Kids Sea Camp is actually a family scuba diving camp. Many people who attend with diving family but they themselves are nondiving adults say we are a family adventure camp.”

The media and Scuba Diving Magazine refer to us as the best family dive vacation, because we offer family dive trips and kids dive trips, where kids learn to scuba in a custom created safe kid-friendly environment.

Really good quality kids scuba training is not easy to find. It’s available at very few PADI dive shops around the world. Kids Sea Camp is one of the few organizations that provide the PADI Seal Team and SASY programs on family dive holidays. Most kids scuba holidays or family scuba holidays don’t provide private boats and private kids friendly Pro dive staff.  Kids Sea Camp events include the kid’s scuba gear and dive gear needed in the package as well as rental scuba equipment for adults who do not own gear and need to rent dive gear.  

Kids Sea Camp is a PADI 5-star scuba shop that sells dive gear for families traveling with them on trips. 

Kids Sea Camp provides an online scuba store that offers the following:  Scuba masks, Scuba fins, dive regulator systems, BC’s, dive computers, crew coats, and boat coats, dive apparel, COVID protective face masks, dive bags, travel luggage, hats, T-shirts, kids dive gear, adult dive gear, full scuba gear sets, luggage for family dive travel and dive site flip charts.

Kids Sea Camp was voted again in 2020 by Scuba Diving Magazine readers #1 in Family dive travel. 

Kids Sea Camp provides Bonaire dive trips, St. Lucia dive trips and vacations, liveaboard dive travel, Roatan dive trips & vacations, Palau family dive trips and vacations, Luxury dive liveaboards trips on the Arenui, Luxury honeymoon, and romantic dive vacations for adults.  We also provide empty nester dive vacations.  Private holidays and family or couple dive vacations can be booked to Fiji, Indonesia, Maldives Philippines, the Cayman Islands, and so many more.
