Junior Open Water Diver

Kids can get certified too!

Just like the adult course, this junior open water diving course consists of online learning, classroom workshops, pool training, and four 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.

My son just finished his open water certification this weekend and I want to thank ALL the Diventures staff for being so awesome!! Chad and Aaron were his instructors and I could not have asked for better people they worked hard to make sure they he understood all the safety aspects but they also made sure he had fun. My son has fallen in love with scuba and a lot of that has to do with the wonderful experience he got through Diventures!! Thank you so much!!
