BUBBLEMAKER Introduce Children To Scuba Diving In Less Than 2 Metres Of Water!

The PADI Bubblemaker Experience

What a great way to introduce children to scuba diving in a pool in less than 2 metres of water. Celebrate a birthday by throwing a memorable, exciting Bubblemaker party with friends and family. It is super fun, easy and safe.

This session is for children aged 8-12 years old.

The Fun Part

Youngsters can join in the family fun of scuba diving or even start a trend! Children should be comfortable in the water, but they don't have to be super swimmers. With youngsters in mind, the maximum depth is only 2 metres/ 6 feet.

Kids will discover the amazing feeling that you get from scuba diving! This will include a 20 minute briefing on everything SCUBA, and then the rest of the session will be spent playing in and under the water. These Bubblemaker dives are a great way to introduce children to the underwater world.

  • Typical sessions last for 2 hours (sign up, gear up and fun included)
  • Also available as an open water experience (2 metres/ 6 feet max. depth), upon request and dependent on season.

Kids get a chance to :

  • Experience what scuba diving is like under the direct care and supervision of PADI Instructors
  • Take their first breath underwater
  • Learn about and use scuba diving equipment made for children – not adults

Birthday Parties

After many years of conducting these sessions for children we know how much they love the expereince of playing games underwater and how much special birthday boys and girls love taking thier friends along for the experinece. 

Bubblemaker sessions can only be conducted in a swimming pool so this is a great way to entertain the little troops.  With pool entry included, after the session the kids are free to play on the water and enjoy the pool facilities.  Birthday party invites and party treat bags and presents can easily be arranged.  Please give us a call to arrange this special day for your little person.
