PADI Kids scuba diving programs

For your kids summer activities in Kenya on this year’s summer holidays why not get them involved in scuba diving. For children as young as 8 years old, Ocean Tribe offer PADI scuba diving programs in Diani. 

As well as being a fun and adventurous summer activity. Scuba diving is also a wonderful way to introduce children to the underwater world and wondrous eco-system. This can lead to a lifelong hobby or even career choices in the fields of diving instruction, marine biology or conservation.

All PADI scuba diving programs for kids summer activities are well structured with worldwide-recognised certifications. So what programs are available?

Scuba Diving Programs for 8 and 9 Year Olds

PADI Bubblemaker

1 Hour Session

PADI Bubblemaker is a pool introduction to scuba diving with a PADI Instructor for kids aged 8-9. They will be introduced to the scuba equipment with a briefing with an instructor before getting into the water. They will then start blowing bubbles and learning what it is like to be on scuba in a controlled environment. The experience tends to last an hour or so.

Scuba Diving Programs for 10+ Year Olds

PADI Discover Scuba Diving

1 Day

Discover Scuba Diving will let you try scuba to see if you like it. While not an actual scuba certification, during the discover scuba diving experience you’ll learn how to use scuba equipment in shallow water and get a quick and easy introduction to what it takes to explore the underwater world. This involves a short pool session with an instructor learning basic scuba skills, before 2 dives in the ocean.

Book the PADI Discover Scuba Diving Experience

PADI Junior Open Water Diver

3 Days

The PADI Open Water Course is the world’s most popular scuba course, and has introduced millions of people to the adventurous diving lifestyle. You breathe underwater for the first time (something you’ll never forget) and learn what you need to know to become a certified diver. During the course, you’ll make at least five pool dives and four dives at dive sites in Diani under the supervision of your Ocean Tribe Instructor. The rating can be automatically upgraded to full Open Water certification when the diver reaches 15 years old.

Scuba Diving Programs for 12+ Year Olds

PADI Junior Advanced Open Water Diver

3 Days

The PADI Advanced Open Water Diver course builds on what you learned on the Open Water course, introducing new skills and extending the depth range to which you are permitted to dive. Unlike the Open Water course there is no confined water diving or classroom sessions, you are straight onto the boat in Diani after some independent study in your manual and diving. You must complete 5 adventure dives and the matching knowledge reviews in the PADI Advanced Open Water Manual to qualify as an Advanced Open Water Diver.

PADI Junior Rescue Diver and Emergency First Responder

4 Days

Emergency First Response Primary & Secondary Care– Emergency First Response Primary Care (CPR) teaches participants how to respond to life-threatening emergencies. 

The course focuses on primary care through a combination of knowledge development, skill development and realistic scenario practice to make sure participants have the confidence in their ability to provide care when emergency situations arise. Emergency First Response Secondary Care (first aid) covers injuries or illnesses that are not immediately life threatening. 

Participants focus on secondary assessment and first aid through knowledge development, skill development and realistic scenario practice.

It is time for “Serious Fun.” Do you see yourself as a caring person and want to be able to help people. The PADI Junior Rescue Diver course teaches you the fundamental knowledge and skills to effectively assist a fellow diver in distress, co-ordinate dive accident scenario management and render appropriate first aid to a victim when necessary. The course takes three days to complete and follows on from the basic primary and secondary care training that you receive on the Emergency First Response course, which should be done prior to commencing a PADI Rescue Diver course.

I’ve Got My PADI Open Water Certification. What Next?

0
I've got my PADI

So I’ve “got my PADI”. I am a PADI Open Water Diver. I am now qualified to dive to 18m or shallower with a buddy in conditions similar or better than those I was trained in anywhere in the world. Should I stop there? Or what options are open to me now I’ve “got my PADI”?

Get Some Dives Logged

You became a PADI Open Water Diver because you want to experience the underwater world. Now you should not just leave this to only diving once a year on vacation. 

There are so many diving options available to you that you should try and get as many experience dives as possible. You get better at things by practicing them. 

So find out what is available to you in your local area to go diving. For example: East African residents are entitled to join the Ocean Tribe Dive Club where they can log as many dives as possible over the year.

DAN Scuba Diving Insurance

Take PADI Continuing Education Courses

Do you want to extend the range of where you can dive or learn further diving skills?

The PADI Open Water Diver certification restricts you to depths of 18m or shallower. You also learn basic navigation on the PADI Open Water Diver Course. 

To extend your range and improve your navigation, you should consider taking the PADI Advanced Open Water Diver course.

On this course in addition to the deep and navigation dives you can also do adventure dives that interest you. 

For example: Wreck diving, underwater photography, search and recovery diving, peak performance buoyancy and many more.

As well as increasing your depth limit to 30m, the PADI Advanced Open Water course adventure dives can be counted as the first dive of the corresponding specialty diver course. So you could then move directly into PADI Specialty Diver courses that interest you.

Want to increase your range to the creational limit of 40m? Complete the PADI Deep Diver course. It’s just an example but there are so many options available to you and you can take a step forward in the PADI Master Scuba Diver Challenge..

dive against debris

Get Involved in Environmental Activities

As divers we have a duty to protect what we dive to see and love. The ocean has so many threats and we as divers can make a difference. 

You can join activities such as beach and underwater clean-ups (every first Saturday of the month at Ocean Tribe) and environmental ocean monitoring programs. 

You can increase your education on the subject by taking AWARE specialty diver courses such as AWARE Coral Reef ConservationProject AWARE, AWARE Dive Against Debris and AWARE Fish ID specialties.

Above all you can talk to people about protecting the reef, practice safe diving practices and be environmentally aware. We want to keep our waters as healthy as possible.

Own your own scuba diving equipment

Invest in Your Own Set of Scuba Diving Equipment

I’ve got my PADI. The rental equipment seemed ok. Why do I need to buy my own set of diving equipment?

Having your own set of scuba equipment is the same as having equipment for any pastime you enjoy. 

Your own equipment is set up to suit you, in precise sizing and diving style. 

Divers who have their own equipment enjoy their dives more and are more likely to dive often.

Remember that rental equipment is generic and has to fit and suit a massive range of divers. 

Your own dive equipment can be a lot more specific to you and your own style. 

BCD’s with integrated weight systems, balanced regulators, dive computers with more features, an exact fitting wetsuit, your own mask and fins. The list is endless. 

You will enjoy your diving more with your own gear.

Ocean Tribe will be delighted to assist you in planning and purchasing your own personal scuba diving equipment, with recommendations based on budget and the type of diving you would like to do.

dive career internships

Take a Dive Career Internship

Many of us have become so addicted to diving following our Open Water course that we have decided to make a career of it. But that can be very expensive doing each course one by one and paying for diving at the same time.

Ocean Tribe dive career internships to PADI Divemaster or PADI diving instructor levels package it all together. You make savings of literally thousands of dollars. 

Our dive career internships include:

  • All core PADI courses needed
  • A full set of your own personal scuba equipment
  • Unlimited diving during the internship (most interns leave with 100+ dives)
  • Dive club membership for a year.
  • Mentorship from some of the top PADI educators in the business.

Dive career internships can be started from any diver level, even beginner. They are a great way to advance to the pro levels and can be done over any time scale you pick.

There are a few answers to the question of “what should I do now I’ve got my PADI.” You have so many options. 

But the main thing is. Keep diving. Dive as much as you can. Become an active ambassador for the ocean we know and love. 

Don’t let it stagnate and leave yourself open to diving opportunities.

You have joined the most inclusive group of people we know. Take advantage. Happy diving!

Free Nitrox Course offer may 2024

As a special May promotion this year we will be giving a free PADI Nitrox course with any booking for the PADI Open Water Diver Course or PADI Advanced Open Water Diver course

The PADI Enriched Air Diver course is the most popular PADI specialty diver program. It qualifies you in the use of enriched air (which is a higher percentage of oxygen in the gas mix you breathe) in recreational scuba diving.

Using the enriched air can extend your allowable bottom time, giving you more time to enjoy your dives and shorten surface intervals.

This can be great when you are doing a trip that requires a lot of dives, or just like to improve your margins.

It is also the first foray into the technical diving world as you change from the standard gas mix of 21% oxygen.

How do I get my free PADI Nitrox course?

  1. Go to Ocean Tribe’s website (although I think you are already here reading the news duh)
  2. Click on the Book Online Now button at the top of the page. (Or just click here now)
  3. Select the PADI course you wish to do and fill in the customer details.
  4. Check the “I agree with the terms and conditions” box.
  5. Click on “Continue.” At the next screen instead of “Proceed to Checkout”, click “Continue Shopping”.
  6. Follow the same procedure to add the Enriched Air Nitrox to the package (this can be found in the Advanced Courses folder).
  7. Click on “Continue.” At the next screen click on “Proceed to Checkout”.
  8. Locate the discount code box at the top of the right-hand side “Payment Information” column.
  9. Enter the promo code EANXMAYOW if you are taking the PADI Open Water Diver Course or EANXMAYAOW if you are taking the PADI Advanced Open Water Diver course.
  10. Click the blue “Apply” button.
  11. Click the green “Continue” button.
  12. Follow the directions to complete the payment.

Free nitrox course- Analysing EANX cylinders
Free nitrox course EANX tanks

The PADI eLearning links for the core PADI course and the free nitrox Course special offer will be emailed to you along with your booking confirmation and directions.

You should allow at least one afternoon or a morning after the Open Water or Advanced course to complete the PADI Enriched Air Diver course (and you will have needed to also have completed the eLearning too. This is critical).

Once you have completed the courses you will have your core PADI certification of PADI Open Water Diver or PADI Advanced Open Water Diver. You will also be certified in the use of enriched air nitrox up to 40% mix and then able to obtain nitrox fills from dive centres around the world.

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.

Life Enriching Benefits

0
AWARE Coral Reef Conservation

May PADI Specialty of the Month is AWARE Coral Reef Conservation. In continuing our PADI Specialty of the Month program, the featured specialty this month is actually a non-diving specialty. But it is time to learn about the environments that we like to dive in and how to best protect it. The AWARE Coral Reef Conservation program will help you learn about the importance of the reef ecosystems, appreciate the complexity of the habitats and most vitally teaches you how to protect them.

Who Can Take The AWARE Coral Reef Conservation Course?

Anyone who has an interest in the aquatic world can take this course. There are no prerequisites or age restrictions and no water sessions are required to earn this non-diving certification.

  • Why coral reefs are so important.
  • Why many coral reefs are in serious trouble.

AWARE Our World Our Water

What Other Environmental Activities Can I Get Involved In to Protect Our Coral Reef?

At Ocean Tribe we try and do our bit by promoting responsible diving practices. We have monthly beach and underwater clean-ups on the first Saturday of every month which divers and non-divers alike are welcome to come down and help us protect the Diani ocean environment. We also combine these with a PADI Dive Against Debris Specialty course.

Other things you can do are enrol on a PADI Peak Performance Buoyancy program to help you get better buoyancy and avoid touching the reef. It will also help your dive trim and save your air as you learn about moving more efficiently through the water. Other environmentally minded PADI programs include Project AWARE and AWARE Fish Identification.

We also work with the Olive Ridley project local branch helping to monitor turtle activity on our coral reefs.

Starting the day after the PADI Instructor exam, the free wildlife safari is a 3 day / 2 night adventure. You will travel in 4×4 vehicles from Diani to Ngutuni Lodge and Game Sanctuary.

Ngutuni Lodge is surrounded on 3 sides by Tsavo East National park and set against the spectacular backdrop of the Sagala Hills.

The game sanctuary plays host to a vast array of the Tsavo African wildlife. As well as going out on game drives around the park, the lodge is situated right on its own waterhole, which can be viewed while enjoying drinks and meals on the viewing gallery, or even right from your bed in your lodge room.

Regular visitors to the waterhole include the famous Tsavo short maned lions, elephants, zebras, giraffes, waterbucks, warthogs, and over 500 species of birds. Rooms are equipped with a double and a single bed and all have en-suite bathrooms, giving you a great place to relax after your safari encounters.

All meals are on a full board basis and the buffet-style food is pretty delicious, with breakfast and 3 courses for lunch and 4 courses for dinner consisting of salad, soup, main dish & dessert made up of all locally sourced fresh ingredients.

For further recreation there is a bar and swimming pool on site in the lodge.

The free wildlife safari is an awesome way to reward yourself for all the hard work that you have put into the PADI IDC after a couple of weeks on the course. All going to plan, you will be celebrating your new gained status of PADI Open Water Scuba Instructor.
