Scuba for Kids

Have you ever wondered what it’s like to dive with underwater lights, take digital pictures underwater or float effortlessly like an astronaut? We offer the PADI Seal Team program where AquaMissions introduce you to wreck diving, navigation, buoyancy, underwater photography, environmental awareness and more. The PADI Seal Team is for kids aged 8-12 who are looking to explore the sport of Scuba Diving in the fun and safe environment of our indoor heated pool.

Over the years Adelaide Scuba has introduced many kids to the underwater world, lots of them have gone on to complete their PADI Junior Open Water Diver course & then enjoyed recreational diving into later life. We currently have many kids who complete an Aquamission every few weeks, for birthdays & special occasions or as a fun school holiday activity.

Ask us about our Bubblemaker Parties for kids, we host on site parties no special occasion necessary! A fun and adventurous activity for kids and their friends to get involved in, call and speak to our staff about making a booking, or come into the store for a personal tour.
