Who can be a PADI Seal?
The PADI Seal Team is a program for children eight years of age and
older that keeps kids diving until they turn 10 and can take the PADI
Junior Scuba Diver or Junior Open Water Diver program. Your kids can
jump straight into the PADI Seal Team program or start after
experiencing our Bubblemaker program. The PADI Seal Team provides a
structured learning environment combined with enjoyable scuba
activities. This stimulating program appeals to kids who crave
adventure, seek the challenge of learning new skills and want to gain an
appreciation for preserving the aquatic realm. They also earn credit
towards their Jr. Open Water Diver certification.
What do PADI Seals do?
PADI Seals learn the basics of scuba diving through several
Aquamissions. There are 15 missions, but after the first five,
participants become PADI Seal Team Members. In the first
Aquamission, Seals learn how to breathe underwater, learn about their
air gauge and practice hand signals. In Aquamission #2, they build on
their scuba skills (practicing regulator skills, becoming more confident
divers and great PADI Seal Team buddies). The third Aquamission
includes more exciting skills (mask clearing, octopus breathing and hand
signals). In the fourth Aquamission, Seals learn what it's like to to be
weightless (buoyancy) - just like an Astronaut in space! Aquamission #5
is the last step in becoming a PADI Seal Team Member. In the last
Aquamission, we review what the Seals have learned, and add some fun
surface skills (Snorkeling)!
The adventure continues...Our underwater space station,
underwater wreck and many other adventures await PADI Seals after
they complete their first five Aquamissions. Seal Team Members
complete 10 specialty recreational and educational Aquamissions to
become Master Seal Team Members. Check out our Master Seal Team
