Child Policy:

Child age: Junior Open Water Diver aged 10-14. Certification for juniors, as for adults, is based on mastery learning. Junior Diver certification cards state the restrictions based on age. After certification, 10-11 year olds are restricted to diving with a parent, guardian or PADI Professional to 18-meters; 12-14 year olds must dive with an adult certified diver.
Child price: Same price as adults
Please be aware of: The course contains 12 hours intense theory classes. We therefore ask parents to evaluate if the child is able to complete this. As an alternative, there is a Scuba Diver Certification, which is exactly half of the Open Water course. Many dive centres recommends this for young children, because it is always possible for the student to add on the last 2 days, and receive the full Open Water Certification at a later point in time.
Note: It is not possible for children to book Advanced Open Water
