SCUBA DIVING BEGINNERS SEAL TEAM COURSE (9 YEARS +)

We are teaming up again with Hidden Depths Dive school to bring your children a fantastic opportunity to share in the adventure of the underwater world and develop new scuba diving skills in a swimming pool environment. This 2-day Seal Team course is specifically aimed at younger divers taking their first dive course, and includes basic scuba skills as well as some dive theory.

The Seal Team course is also a recognised certification, meaning all successful participants will receive a certification card from PADI, showing they have reached that level. It also opens future dive opportunities and counts towards an Open Water Diver certification and is a springboard to further diving qualifications should they choose to progress into more SCUBA as they grow older.

Drop off is at 9am and pick up is at 4pm from our Mojo Active site in Almondsbury (unless booked on the early morning minibus service from the Downs/BGS) and NOT at the pool. There will be some time spent at our on site Holiday Club prior to leaving for the pool, so children should dress for outdoor activities in addition to bringing swimwear. We transport the children over to the pool for the SCUBA sessions.

We will also be running the next level 4-day Open Water course in August, children will need to have completed this beginner course to participate in the Open Water course in the summer.
