PADI Seal Team

PADI Seal Team and Bubblemaker experiences are designed for children ages 8 and up, who are interested in scuba diving. A Scuba World instructor will teach your child many snorkeling and scuba diving skills in a pool. PADI Seal Team includes doing some cool stuff in the pool, meeting friends, and sharing in the adventure of the underwater world.  We help kids taking their first breaths underwater and discover wonders that lie beneath the surface by doing exciting PADI Seal Team Aqua Missions.

What will my child learn?

Bubblemakers get a chance to:

  • Experience scuba diving under the direct care and supervision of a PADI Pro.
  • Take their first breaths underwater in water shallower than 2 metres/6 feet.
  • Learn about and use scuba diving equipment made for children – not adults.
  • Have lots of fun.

The PADI Seal Team is for young scuba divers who are looking for action-packed fun in a pool by completing exciting AquaMissions.

The PADI Seal Team program teaches responsibility and respect for the aquatic realm. It’s broken into two parts.

Part one, AquaMissions 1 – 5, 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.

Part two, 10 specialty AquaMissions, includes adventures like creature identification, search and recovery diving, and skin diving. Complete all of these and you’ll become a PADI Master Seal Team Member – joining an elite group of young scuba divers.


After completing 5 Aquamissions, participants are eligible to receive a PADI Seal Team e-Card with their picture, which identifies them as a PADI Seal Team member. However, they will not be scuba certified. The PADI Seal Team provides participants with a structured program that lets children develop skills, learn about the aquatic environment, and have a lot of good, clean fun. This is also a good way to introduce kids to scuba diving prior to full Junior Open Water Diver certification.

When is Seal Team offered?

Start today! Begin the Seal Team experience by purchasing the PADI Seal Team Crew Pack at Scuba World and signing the liability release form and medical statement. At home at your leisure, you can read the book and complete the games and quizzes in the book. You can also watch the included DVD. When you are signed up, you will be added to the Seal Team email list. Pool times and locations vary. When a Seal Team pool event is scheduled, you will receive an email. You must respond to the email if your child is planning to participate so that we have enough equipment for all participants. A Scuba World staff member will confirm your attendance.

Participants must be at least 8 years old to sign up and answer NO to all the questions on the medical questionnaire OR have a medical clearance from a physician. Parent or guardian signature is required for all participants.

The session price of $25 includes equipment, pool fees, and instruction. BCD, regulator, tank, mask, snorkel, and fins are provided for use during the session. Students may choose to use their own mask, snorkel, fins if they bring them. Participants must bring or wear a bathing suit and towel, and a ponytail holder and/or headband is recommended for long hair. Pool sessions are 45 minutes.
