The PADI Seal Team is an adventure for children ages 8 and older.  The Seal Team program has 5 AquaMissions with an additional 10  AquaMissions to make them Master Seal Team Members.  This is a great stepping stone for children who love the water and might want to take the PADI Jr. Open Water Course when they are at least 10 years old.  In this particular course we will complete the first 5 AquaMissions along with 2 additional missions that are fun and educational.  Your children will learn basic diving skills: breathing underwater, equalizing ears and mask, how to check their pressure gauge, hand signals, regulator skills, breathing from an alternate air sourse, mask skills, and weightless buoyancy. No Prior scuba experience is required.  Completing AquaMissions 1-5 teaches the scuba skills in Confined Water Dive One from the Open Water Diver Course!  This PADI Seal Team experience is designed for children who love the water and adventure.  Pre-registration is required and children will receive a take home packet to prepare them for their adventure.  Space is limited.
