Family Scuba Diving
Choose from multiple experiences
Learning how to scuba dive is a ticket to a lifetime of underwater adventure and this family experience is a perfect introduction to the sport. Get expert instruction on safety and underwater mobility techniques before learning how to breathe underwater and achieve weightlessness while getting used to the equipment. Courses take place in swimming pools under controlled conditions - and while it might seem a long way from diving in a tropical ocean, it's the perfect way for the whole family to get a basic grounding in diving. It's also ideal for anyone considering taking a PADI Open Water Diving Course. At the end of the session younger kids (under 10) get a surprise gift to take home.
