About the Course: The PADI® Seal Team experience is for young scuba divers who are looking for action-packed fun in a pool by completing exciting AquaMissions. Have you ever wondered what it’s like to dive with flashlights, take digital pictures underwater or float effortlessly like an astronaut? Beyond learning basic scuba skills, there are specialty AquaMissions, such as wreck diving, navigation, buoyancy, environmental awareness and more. PADI® Seal Team experience includes doing some cool stuff in the pool, meeting friends and sharing in the adventure of the underwater world.
To join the PADI® Seal Team experience, a child must be 8 years of age or older. No prior experience with scuba diving is necessary, but kids should be comfortable in the water. Parental approval is required.
Academic: The PADI® Seal Team program teaches responsibility and respect for the aquatic realm. It’s broken into two parts.
AquaMissions 1-5: (Part 1) covers basic scuba diving skills, such as breathing underwater, clearing a mask of water, recovering a regulator and swimming around experiencing the sensation of being weightless. Each session takes about an hour. Complete these AquaMissions and become a recognized PADI® Seal Team Member. Your experience may also count toward the PADI® Open Water Diver course when you’re old enough to participate in the course.
