PADI Seal Team
The Ideal Starter Course For 8-11 Year Olds!
PADI Seal Team
The PADI Seal Team is for young scuba divers who are looking for action-packed fun in a pool by completing exciting AquaMissions.
Have you ever wondered what it's like to float effortlessly like an astronaut?
Beyond learning basic scuba skills, there are specialty AquaMissions such as buoyancy, environmental awareness and more.
PADI Seal Team includes doing some cool stuff in the pool, meeting friends and sharing in the adventure of the underwater world.
To join the PADI Seal Team, a child must be 8 years of age or older. No prior experience with scuba diving is necessary, but kids should be comfortable in the water.
Parental approval is required.
This 5 week course allows for ample dive experience and is a good warm-up for the Scuba Diver course, if that’s your ultimate goal.
- The PADI Seal Team program teaches responsibility and respect for the aquatic realm. It’s broken into two parts.
- Part one, AquaMissions 1 - 5, covers basic scuba diving skills, such as breathing underwater, clearing a mask of water, recovering a regulator and swimming around experiencing the sensation of being weightless.
- Each session takes about an hour. Complete these AquaMissions and become a recognised PADI Seal Team Member.
- Continue their dive training and complete PADI Junior Scuba Diver certification
