BubbleMaker for Kids!
BubbleMaker for kids is a unique PADI program introducing young kids from aged 8 to scuba diving. We love giving kids their first breaths underwater and our friend Soleh completed a PADI Bubblemaker Program with us in 2016! Since then we have had many kids from aged 8 – 10 come to try it out! For adults who are nervous you can simply jump in to feel those first breaths then decide to try in the ocean next!
We had a great time practicing our new scuba and snorkeling skills! Well done to Mekhala, Farid, Massaya, Maddie, Sol, Buddy and all the kids we had the pleasure of diving with!
mauyangon wrote a 5* Trip Advisor Review Dec 2018We loved Blue Divers and their environmental approach. Professionalism ,great communication, tailored plans and flexibility. Our two kids (10-12) got their junior open water certification which was assisted by Caroline who was a fantastic instructor for them . So if you are looking for a serious dive centre in Ko Phi Phi , Blue Dive is the place

What comes after PADI Bubblemaker?
When kids come of age they can enroll in the PADI Discover Scuba Diving program. Additionally, once they are 10 years old and pass the swim requirements they can enroll in a certification course. Until then they can continue to get comfortable in the ocean by becoming proficient snorkelers or even learn skin diving.
