NAUI allows child scuba certification starting at ten (10) years of age. The NAUI Junior Scuba Certification course for children younger than twelve is exactly the same as the adult certification course. Kids complete the same academic material as adults, pool work and open water dives, but are limited to a depth of forty (40) feet and require supervision by a parent/guardian or a Scuba Instructor. Since most of the course is independent study, with safety and ease of mind, it may be best for children to complete a Private certification course. A private course ensures thorough comprehension of the course material and sufficient time for the completion of water skills. There are several special considerations when diving with a child such as physical readiness and emotional maturity- Please call us to discuss courses for anyone under the age of 18.
