Snorkeling and Scuba Diving Programs for Kids & Teenagers

Do your kids love the water? 

Scuba diving with Oakville Divers is a fantastic way to teach kids to truly appreciate their planet, the environment and nature.

At Oakville Divers we offer some great kids' programs, ranging from a 2 hour fun scuba tryout experience, to a full certification course and junior scuba diver training.

All About Snorkeling:

Learn to snorkel with Oakville Divers and explore the underwater world from the surface. This course provides basic
information on snorkeling equipment, the environment, problem management and safe snorkeling practices. In water training includes various techniques for donning and adjusting equipment, entering the water, checking buoyancy, surface swimming, clearing water from your snorkel and performing effortless surface dives.

The best part is learning to use your mask, fins and snorkel so you don't miss a moment of under water action. Whether you're looking at your local freshwater lake or the big blue ocean, you'll have a new perspective on just about every body of water. For ages 7-15 years.

*This program is offered in conjunction with the Town of Oakville. Please visit their Recreation Site for more details or to register.

PADI Bubblemaker Program:

A fun introductory scuba experience where kids get to try scuba diving in a pool and have fun playing underwater in shallow water. This is very similar to the PADI Discover Scuba Diving experience except that it is tailored for children and only takes place in the shallow end.  Parents are encouraged to  join in alongside their children as a Discover Scuba Diving participant. For ages 10 +.
