Kids Dive course offerings:
- SASY and Snorkel experiences (from age 5)

- Jr. Adventure Diver (from age 10)
- Jr. Advanced Diver (from age 12)
Sasy/snorkel is for the younger kids who are interested in learning basic snorkel/scuba dive skills in the pool and the ocean are offered. A surface supplied air system that resembles a scuba unit with a small tank and regulator to “float” on the surface and breathe through the 1st stage is used. The “BCD” is in effect a life jacket and does not permit the child to descend underwater but does provide a safe and comfortable snorkel system. The child must be somewhat comfortable in the water and be able to put their head under the water and swim unassisted in the pool. Also, the kids must possess an interest in being in the water and be able to follow the instructions of their supervisor. The class will begin in the pool by teaching kids snorkel techniques using a scuba mask and fins. Kids will learn how to equalize their ears as well as “blast” clear their snorkels. Kids will then be introduced to the SASY unit, taught how to set up a scuba unit, breathe through a regulator and other basic scuba skills like clearing their mask and recovering their regulator. It’s a blast for the kids, while parents get to explore the walls and learn all about the children’s diving afterwards, so the kids can share the adventure. And become new ambassadors for the oceans.
Seal / Ranger dive courses match the times that parents are out diving on the boats. The kids are taught how to scuba dive in the pool and then in the ocean in calm shallow waters filled with marine life. Divetech take the dive training at their pace, so if there is something they are not ready to try they are not required to do it. A general comfort in the water and the desire to explore the sea is a must! We can take the kids in the ocean to do photo, fish ID, or navigation dives etc. – a wide range of options and tons of fun. 2-3 1/2 days are needed to get the kids diving in the ocean.
Jr. OPEN WATER CERTIFICATION
Kids 10 and up can learn to scuba dive and earn their Junior Open Water certification, and diving no deeper than 40 to 60 feet (age dependent). The kids can do E-learning online in advance or take the entire open water course with Divetech over 3 days. Kids graduate as certified divers, earn a college credit and learn about the ocean and marine life.
Jr. ADVENTURE DIVER
Once certified as a Jr. Open water diver, kids can continue their underwater adventure by doing 3 Specialty dives and earn their Adventure diver certification. As 10 and 11 year olds cannot do the deep dive or night dive, these 3 dives put them on their way to becoming an Advanced Diver once they turn 12. Specialty dives include Fish ID, Navigation, Buoyancy, Photography, Search and Recovery, Wreck and Naturalist to choose from.
Jr. ADVANCED OPEN WATER DIVER
Divetech will take the kids on 5 different adventures, choosing from Fish ID, Navigation, Buoyancy, Photography, Search and Recovery, Wreck, Deep, Night, Scooter and Naturalist dives. Continue the adventure!
CERTIFIED KIDS DVING:
