PADI Non-diving Courses for Children

PADI non-diving kids' courses - without the scuba age limit requirement - are ideal for young children to get a certification.

They are only appropriate to kids with sufficient mental awareness and concentration.

PADI has educational programs that get children active and involved in activities which are related to water sports but do not necessarily require scuba dives in the open water environment.

Most programs have no age requirements so it is an ideal way to get your kids started in some extra education and a rewarding family adventure.

Listed below is a small sample of PADI and Emergency First Response non-diving educational and rewarding lessons that we offer to young children.
