Fun for Kids with a PADI Bubblemaker adventure
To book a PADI Bubblemaker experience you must be:
- 8 years old or older
- Medically fit to dive
We conduct the PADI Bubblemaker experience over half a day.
Our PADI experience program consists of two sections:
- Knowledge Development – your PADI Instructor takes you through basic knowledge including how to use equipment, how to equalize, how to clear a regulator, a mask and an overview of breathing rules.
- Confined Water training – conducted in one of the many beautiful shallow bays around Koh Tao, we introduce your child to breathing underwater for the first time under direct supervision of a PADI Pro.
- They will practice equalization and clearing water from the regulator and masks. We will take them for a swim across the sand where they will be able to look at the reef and fish.
At Black Turtle Dive we take our customer promise very seriously. All Bubblemaker experiences are conducted with a maximum of 2 students per PADI Instructor.
Our Instructors are highly trained and experienced, ensuring your child will receive lots of attention and they will progress at their own pace in a relaxed environment.
During the training your child will slowly build their confidence and ability and develop the skills necessary to have an enjoyable and safe experience.
