Jr. Open Water Diver Certification


Junior Open Water Diver Program

Ages 10 - 12 pool and open water

Ages 13 + can join our regular pool and open water training

The minimum age for certification is 10 years old, but for these younger kids we like to conduct the program slightly differently. The major difference is group size, for these ages we limit the max divers in a group to 4, with no more then two 10-11 years old in a group.

We also conduct the training over multiple evenings as the usual time frame (7pm - 11pm) runs too late for kids. We split the training out over at least 2, but typically 3 - 4 shorter evenings.

Cost: The same as our typical Open Water training. We do these privatized programs for kids at no extra charge. Click here for Open Water pricing.

Schedule: The training would be on Wednesday or Thursday evenings, spaced out as needed. Please contact us to arrange this training.

Ages 10 - 11 special restrictions.
After certification Junior Open Water divers ages 10 - 11 must follow some extra restrictions.
1. They must dive with either a parent/guardian or a PADI professional - Divemaster or Instructor.
2. The maximum depth for these dives is 40ft, as opposed to the usual Open Water depth limit of 60ft.
