Why Choose Kids Sea Camp?

A whole new world of family adventure:

Why choose Kids Sea Camp? A simple question with a simple answer, we cultivate family relationships through authentic high quality, ocean-oriented and cultural experiences that encourage kids to engage each other respectfully in the amazing underwater world. Through uniquely customized itineraries and educational programs, we accommodate a multitude of individual family needs. We pride ourselves on award-winning, highly personalized attention to detail, that ensures safety and comfort for young divers. 

We inspire kids to become more confident in building trust, through training and exploration. Kids Sea Camp brings together free-spirited, adventure-minded families who want meaningful interactions connecting with each other and the outdoor world.

Your personal trip concierge: We are here to serve you and make sure your vacation is the best it can be. Our Kids Sea Camp family vacations are hosted by Tom & Margo Peyton, along with our team of PADI professional and host families. We are here to cater to your personal needs. This may be extra support for the kids, a drive to the grocery store, a scuba tune-up, one-on-one personal dive training session, help with a camera or demonstration with dive gear. Maybe it’s getting over a fear or just need a refresher.

Special needs: Kids Sea Camp is special needs friendly. If you give us enough advance notice and the information we need, we can make most wishes come true. Kids Sea Camp has been able to cater to handicapped divers, high functioning autism, hearing impaired divers, disabled divers, and other special needs. The primary language spoken is English, however, we have a pool of multilingual PADI instructors around the world and with notice, almost any language can be accommodated.

Our moral compass: 17 years of taking kids diving, without a single dive accident are not just luck, it’s hard work and dedication. Our record and reputation speak for itself.  We work with family-friendly experienced knowledgeable professionals. Yes, we have standard PADI, travel, medical and KSC waivers, like any other adventure sport, however, it does not relieve us of our moral obligation to keep you safe!

Safety: Safety is our #1 and fun is #2 in order of priorities. There is no other company like Kids Sea Camp because we make your vacation personal. KSC only works with kid-friendly experts that we trust in the water with our own family.

Adventures: Kids Sea Camp has grown to be one of the only tour companies in the world to take families on advanced dive adventures to the Galapagos diving with sharks, Yap to dive with giant manta rays, Palau to dive sunken wrecks, Fiji to shark school, and the Philippines to muck dive.

Waivers: Kids Sea Camp provides authentic experiences with real wildlife and marine life interactions. It’s not Disney World, and there is no plexiglass. We provide education to families through facts and hands-on experiences, with hopes to remove fears created by false information. Our trips require participants to be respectful to each other and the underwater world we are exploring. Our rules must be followed, decisions honored and our word is final. Safety is our area of expertise when it comes to keeping families safe while enjoying their scuba vacations.

Unplug: Put down the cell phones and the laptops. Jump into the real world with daily dives or zip-lining, jungle biking, yoga, paddle boarding, playing football, basketball or fly fishing. At a Kids Sea Camp, you spend a complete week disconnecting from your routine and reconnecting with family, new friends, and the amazing underwater world.

Special occasions: Weddings, birthdays, anniversaries or reunions. Let us know how we can serve you better.
