Do you want to try something new as a family? Are your children water-babies? Do they want to move snorkeling to a new level? PADI offers several programs suitable for children as young as 8 years old. All courses are conducted under the strict supervision of an experienced PADI instructor.

Minimum age: 8 years old
The PADI Seal Team program keeps youngsters diving, learning and having fun until they are ready to enroll in the PADI Junior Scuba Diver or Open Water Diver course.
The program is an exciting underwater activity-filled introduction to the world of diving. PADI Seal Team gives children a chance to swim around underwater and experience adventure, discovery and thrills. It also provides parents or guardians with a structured program that lets their children develop skills, learn about the aquatic realm and have a lot of good, clean fun.
The entire program is comprised of fifteen AquaMissions. To become official members of the PADI Seal Team, kids must complete the first five AquaMissions. These activities develop fundamental scuba skills and knowledge while preparing kids for further adventure. Children learn about diving by watching the PADI Seal Team video, through the PADI Seal Team AquaMission Activity Book and during pre-dive briefings with their PADI Instructor. Each AquaMission consists of a briefing, a skill session and a game or activity.
Once these young divers have completed the pool dive and answered challenge questions in their PADI Seal Team AquaMission Logbooks, they will fill out their log books and earn an AquaMission sticker for each dive.
Finishing AquaMissions 1-5, which is equivalent to completing the skills in Confined Water Dive One from the Open Water Diver Course, means youngsters are PADI Seal Team members. They will receive a PADI Seal Team member card and wall certificate which recognizes their accomplishments and allows them to work toward PADI Master Seal Team recognition.
As part of their PADI Seal Team membership, PADI Seals have access to a special website designed for young divers. There, young divers can learn more about the PADI Seal Team through character bios and they can read about the PADI Seal Team and Specialty AquaMissions. Kids can check out links to padi.com and projectaware.org.
Conduct AquaMissions 1-5 in order for PADI Seal Team membership. Specialty AquaMissions may be offered in any order.

Children who have completed all skills from Confined Water Dive One (through Bubblemaker, Discover Scuba Diving or PADI Scuba Diver or Open Water Diver course) may participate in specialty AquaMissions. However, before they can become PADI Master Seal Team members, they must become PADI Seals by completing all activities for AquaMissions 1-5.
