Kids & Teens Classes

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.

Junior Certification (10-14)

Young people ages 10-14 can take the full PADI Open Water Diver scuba certification course and upon completion will become Junior Open Water Divers.  Divers ages 10-11 must dive with a PADI Professional or certified parent/guardian and once they’re 12-14 years old they can dive with other certified adults.

Teens 15 & Up

Teens 15 years and older can take the full PADI Open Water Diver class plus most other advanced training.  Learn more about beginner classes.

Looking for a fun, exciting family activity? A unique never-forget birthday experience? We can host a Splash Party for your family or groups of kids 8 and older to discover scuba diving and have a fantastic time in a local pool.  Learn more about Splash Parties.
