Each session also requires a parent/guardian to be present throughout.
Any Other Costs?
We do strongly advise for hygiene purpose that all students own their own mask and snorkel.
Parents or Guardians
The best part of the AquaMissions is that they reinforce safe diving and build water confidence while the young divers are having fun. PADI Seals get to sample a wide variety of dives. In addition, this programme provides a structure for young divers to develop skills, learn about the aquatic environment and have a lot of good, clean fun.
This is also an excellent introduction to SCUBA diving prior to full Open Water Diver certification
Please read our Important Information.
Perhaps you would like to snorkel or even dive with the children - see what they do and wave back? Many adults would like to photograph or film their children whilst diving. Please talk to us first if you wish to do so. We can also supply underwater cameras for you and the young diver to use during their experience!
