BUBBLEMAKER What a great way to introduce children to scuba diving.

The PADI Bubblemaker Experience

Bubblemaker is a great way to introduce children to scuba diving in a pool in less than six feet of water. Children who are at least 8 years old get to use scuba gear to breath underwater and have fun swimming around in shallow water!  Celebrate a birthday by throwing a memorable, exciting Bubblemaker party with friends and family. It's fun, easy and safe.

The Fun Part

Youngsters can join in the family fun of scuba diving or even start a trend! Children should be comfortable in the water, but they don't have to be super swimmers. With youngsters in mind, the maximum depth is only 2 meters/ 6 feet.

  • Typical sessions last about an hour (sign up, gear up and fun included)
  • Also available as an open water experience (2 metres/ 6 feet max. depth)

What You Learn

Kids get a chance to :

  • Experience what scuba diving is like under the direct care and supervision of PADI Instructors
  • Take their first breath underwater
  • Learn about and use scuba diving equipment made for children – not adults
  • Have TONS of FUN!!

The Scuba Gear You Use

Children use all the basic scuba gear, which is made specifically for their size and stature.

The Learning Materials You Need

Ready to blow bubbles? The Bubblemaker crewpak gives kids a memento of their visit to the underwater world and is full of fun surprises. The pack includes: a kid-sized beach towel, log book, certificate, temporary tattoo emblem and the adorable and popular Bubblemaker "action figure". Adults love them, too.


The PADI Bubblemaker program is for children age 8 and above.

  • No pre-training required
