The PADI Seal Team Program
The PADI Seal Team is for young divers who are looking for action-packed fun in a pool by doing exciting scuba AquaMissions. They will be floating effortlessly like an astronaut – a unique experience that will make all of their friends jealous. Meeting new friends, sharing in the adventure of the underwater world, all while having an amazing experience, is what this program is all about.
The PADI Seal Team program contains hours of activities that will turn your little ones into SCUBA divers, all while being supported in a fun, safe, inclusive and educational learning environment. AquaMissions can introduce your little ones to wreck, navigation, buoyancy, underwater photography, environmental awareness and more.
Great for Confidence
The PADI Seal Team program will help your little ones push through any barrier to become a diver. When children achieve ‘fish’ status to become a SCUBA diver, accomplishing all the skills that adults divers do, their confidence soar. It’s really beautiful to watch knowing that they will carry this with them going forward in life.
Receive that priceless moment when your child wraps their arms around you at the end of the day and says ‘Thanks. This was the best day ever’…… and then sleeps really well in the evening. They make amazing memories that will last a lifetime. If you have a water baby, they will love scuba diving.

What Kids Learn
Broken into two parts, AquaMissions reinforce safe diving skills while the kids are having fun.
Part One: AquaMissions 1 – 5
Teaches kids the basics of diving – things like buoyancy control, mask clearing, regulator recovery, etc. This helps them gain confidence so that they know they have achieved something pretty special in becoming a diver.
Part Two: Specialty AquaMissions
After building a solid foundation of scuba skills, kids move on to part two. Part two is full of specialty AquaMissions, which usually last about an hour. These are AquaMissions that introduce you to wreck, navigation, buoyancy, underwater photography, environmental awareness and more.
How It Works
This Comprehensive, all inclusive course with bonus materials, makes it easy for you so that you can drop your children off and pick them up with the biggest smiles on their faces. The PADI Seal Team program is $399. We like to ensure that your child is confident in their abilities as a diver before they leave us. This means that sometimes this program takes a bit longer. As a rough guide:
- Part 1: 8 hours over 2 afternoons/ evenings or 1 full day
- Part 2: 1-2 hours for each AquaMission
Children must be 8 – 11 years old to participate. Once they turn 12 they can become PADI Open Water Divers and head into the ocean for an extra level of satisfaction and adventure.
To make sure everything runs smoothly in the water, all participants will have to fill out a quick medical form that will be sent to you upon booking. Your children’s safety and enjoyment is our number 1 priority so if you there are any ‘yes’ answers, a recreational diving medical is needed. Diving doctors found here.
The PADI SEAL Team for Kids is $399.
