Jr. Open Water Diver Certification $350 For Ages 10 -14
Who says kids are too young to learn the skills and physiology of open water diving? The Junior Open Water program is for students between the ages of 10 and 14, who may require individual tutoring of the physiology of the human body, gas laws, and proper equipment assembly, and the complete understanding of scuba skills underwater, so that young boy or girl will enjoy their new underwater world, safely, comfortably, properly trained with the skills and theory they will need. It’s a great activity to bond with your kids! Jr. Open Water Certification requires an Open Water certified diver to be present on every dive.
