Kids can get certified too!
Just like the adult course, this junior open water diving course consists of three parts: home study, academic reviews and pool sessions, and open water training dives. Students will enjoy practicing skills in the comfort of our 88º pool that has both a four-foot shallow end and a 14-foot deep end. These classes have a student-to-instructor ratio of no more than 4:1, ensuring a safe scuba environment that focuses on education and skill development. This course is available to those 12-14 years old. Children ages 10 and 11 may be certified through private classes at an additional cost. Once the diver turns 15, they will automatically have their certification upgraded to an Open Water Diver.
