PADI Seal Team

PADI Seal Team for 8-10 Year Olds 

The PADI Seal Team programme is for our younger customers between the ages of 8-10, who want to learn how to dive. This programme is aimed at kids who are looking for action packed fun in the pool by doing exciting scuba ‘Aqua Missions’. These missions integrate games and fun underwater activities whilst at the same time teaching them the basic scuba diving skills. It’s a chance for them to do some cool stuff in the pool, make new friends, and share in the adventure of the underwater world. Our experienced, CRB checked, PADI Instructors conduct the PADI Seal Team program at a local pool. Each session lasts between 60 – 90 minutes.
