PADI Bubblemaker is run over approximately an hour during the day. Prior to the pool session, your child’s instructor will give a quick briefing where your child will be taught the basics of diver safety.
The pool session will take place in the shallow end where your child will be fitted with their equipment and will practice breathing from the scuba tank.
Once they are ready, it’s time for them to take that first breath underwater!
All this will take place in the shallow end so that they can gain confidence quickly. They’ll be amazed how easy it is to breath and move and in no time they will be gliding effortlessly below the surface.
Under the supervision of their PADI Instructor they will practice swimming underwater with full scuba gear, keep blowing plenty of bubbles and learn some cool tricks. Making bubbles is really fun!
They will participate in an underwater egg and spoon race while remembering to blow bubbles, and what about a game of underwater torpedos?
- Donning and adjusting equipment
- Inflating and deflating their BCD
- Breathing underwater

- Hand signals
Who can sign on?
Each child must be at least 8 years of age. They do not need to have a good swimming ability as long as they are relaxed and enjoy the water. You will be asked to complete a medical questionnaire on behalf of your child to ensure your child’s safety. If you have any questions, contact your instructor who can send you the questionnaire in advance for your doctor to look over.
What is included in the program?
Your child will be supplied with all the diving equipment required for the pool session. Only suitable and maintained equipment will be provided to all students as this not only improves their safety but will also improve their comfort and enjoyment in the water. All they will need to bring are their swimming attire and towel and the instructor will provide the rest!
- All necessary dive equipment
