New diver loving the poolScuba is something the whole family can enjoy! At Blue Planet, we love introducing young people to the underwater world because we know it’s a great way to cultivate respect for the environment. Kids as young as 8 can start exploring scuba diving and starting at 10, they can get certified to dive. Plus, scuba diving in a pool nearby is a fun activity for birthdays or as a family adventure. Contact us to get your kids started on their underwater adventure of a lifetime.

Kids 8 & Up

Starting at 8, kids can participate in the Bubblemaker program that introduces young ocean lovers to the fun of scuba diving in a safe, shallow pool. If they like it, they can continue on to the Seal Team program where they complete Aqua Missions with Blue Planet professionals.
