SEAL TEAMThe PADI Seal Team is for young scuba divers who are looking for action-packed fun in a pool by completing exciting AquaMissions.
Have you ever wondered what it's like to dive with flashlights, take digital pictures underwater or float effortlessly like an astronaut? Beyond learning basic scuba skills, there are specialty AquaMissions, such as wreck diving, navigation, buoyancy, environmental awareness and more. PADI Seal Team includes doing some cool stuff in the pool, meeting friends and sharing in the adventure of the underwater world.
- To be a minimum of 8 years old (with written guardian consent up to the age of 18 yrs)
WHAT YOU LEARN
The PADI Seal Team program teaches responsibility and respect for the aquatic realm. It’s broken into two parts.Part one, AquaMissions 1 - 5
These cover basic scuba diving skills, such as breathing underwater, clearing a mask of water, recovering a regulator and swimming around experiencing the sensation of being weightless. Each session takes about an hour. Complete these AquaMissions and become a recognised PADI Seal Team Member. Your experience may also count toward the PADI Open Water Diver course when you’re old enough to participate in the course.
Part two, 10 speciality AquaMissions
These include adventures like creature identification, search and recovery diving, and skin diving. Complete all of these and you’ll become a PADI Master Seal Team Member – joining an elite group of young scuba divers.
Note: The AquaMissions in part two are optional and are not included in the Seal Team price above. To book onto an individual AquaMission please select the 'Master Seal AquaMission' option. To book onto the Master Seal AquaMissions, you must already be a qualified Seal Team member.
THE FUN PART
There isn’t a specific fun part, all of it is fun! Breathing underwater for the first time is simply amazing. It may seem a bit daunting at first as it is not a natural thing to do but you will soon get used to it. The biggest problem we have is trying to coax you out of the pool at the end of each Seal Team session.
