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.
