For youngsters ages 8 or 9

Scuba Diving is not just for adults!  The Bubblemaker course is a fun and easy scuba diving course designed especially for kids to join the undewater fun too.  Kalliopi Dive College's younger customers are well catered for.  We stock everything to make the mini-diver comfortable, with extra (extra!) small wetsuits, well fitting buoyancy control devices (BCD's) and best quality dive masks & fins etc.  

This super half day programme introduces this special age group to the fun of scuba diving, where they get to play games and enjoy fun exercises with their instructor firstly in the swimming pool and then in the sea where we complete the course with a shallow easy dive (on a one-to-one basis) in a sheltered, confined lagoon.  And of course, kids get their well deserved Bubblemaker certificates to take home.

Not sure if your child will manage?  Allow us the opportunity to offer a fun, complimentary try out first in a shallow pool.    


Daily courses: 9am-12pm / 2pm-5pm
