Diving with Children

Who should take these programs?

To join the PADI BubblemakerTM or PADI Seal Team, a child must be 8 years of age or older; or 10 years old to sign up for the PADI Junior Open Water Diver course. No prior experience with scuba diving is necessary, but kids should be comfortable in the water. Parental approval is required.

Bubblemaker is as fun as it sounds – a chance for kids to blow bubbles while scuba diving
in water shallower than 2 metres.
PADI Seal Team (8 years+)

It is one of the most fun and rewarding things to dive with children. At Fish'n Fins we love working with our young ocean explorers and we make sure they have an amazing experience during their course. We have special permission to take young divers into the shallow reef for their classes to show them the beauty of the Ocean, while lessons with children normally are restricted to the swimming pool by PADI rules - it’s just more fun with Fish'n Fins

Re-activate your skills

Haven’t been diving lately and want a quick scuba refresher? The ReActivate™ program is the perfect way to update your dive skills and knowledge from the PADI Open Water Diver Course before jumping back into the water. Whether you want a few reminders or need to go over the basics, ReActivate is personalized for you: You conveniently review scuba concepts on your tablet, mobile device or computer, then go diving with a PADI Professional. It’s quick and easy, and a good way to prepare for your next PADI course or get ready for a dive vacation. The best part is, divers who complete both the knowledge and inwater skill refresher receive a replacement certification card with a ReActivated date on it.
Any PADI certified diver who wants a refresher or pre-travel update should ReActivate. Dive shops appreciate seeing a recent ReActivate date on your certification card because it means you’re ready to dive in.

If you want to learn more about diving in a new area or in different dive conditions, also ask about completing a Discover Local Diving experience at a local dive site.

If you can’t access ReActivate, or can’t access in your language your PADI Instructor can still complete a scuba skills review with you, and you can refresh your diving knowledge with Scuba Tune-Up Online.

*Your PADI certification does not expire. Participation in PADI ReActivate™ is not mandatory, but recommended as an easy way to refresh your foundational scuba safety knowledge and skills if you haven’t been diving in a while. Divers who complete both the knowledge and in-water skill refresher receive a replacement certification card with a “ReActivated thru” date on it.
