Why Should Under 18’s Participate in A Kids Scuba Diving Camp?

Scuba diving provides kids with the opportunity to learn life long certifications with friends and family in a safe, team environment. Our scuba diving mantra is that we provide an inclusive sport that allows boys and girls with varying sporting abilities, interests and passions to apply them to the underwater world. Given a small amount of patience, we are constantly astounded by the enthusiasm and personal development by our students on a weekly basis for all course levels.

Ocean Tribe’s philosophy is to ensure that our younger divers really comprehend the importance of the underwater world to the well-being of the planet. Every course has been designed to challenge divers to know the most up-to-date trends in marine conservation and dive physiology and how these in turn can have an effect on protecting endangered species and reef-dependent communities.

  • Dive with friends – Scuba diving is a social activity that pupils can share with friends and build lasting friendships upon.

Is Accommodation Provided and Do The Kids have to Complete the Course in the Allotted Time?

We can arrange accommodation if needed, however appreciate that many families will be travelling as part of a holiday so it is not directly included.

There is not a requirement to complete the whole thing in the time given, the days can be split up if extra time is required but most prefer to do it alongside their contemporaries in an organised timeline.
