Diving with Kids Aged 8+ on Koh Lanta
Diving with kids on Koh Lanta allows children aged 8 and 9 to go diving with the PADI Bubblemaker program.
The PADI Bubblemaker program is conducted at a swimming pool, with a maximum of two children with each PADI professional instructor.
During the session, kids will get used to the scuba equipment, learning how to assemble the gear, breathing underwater, controlling their buoyancy and having lots of fun blowing bubbles.
Diving for kids on Lanta is a fantastic introduction to scuba diving for younger divers aged 8 or 9, keeping them excited about scuba diving until they are old enough to enrol in the PADI Open Water Diver course at age 10.
Learning Important Skills
Kids will learn some of the important scuba skills such as mask clearing, regulator clearing and recovery, buoyancy, the important breathing rules, and how to communicate with underwater signals.
Diving with Kids Aged 10+ on Koh Lanta
Parents and older kids can also join the bubblemaker fun with a PADI Discover Scuba Diving introduction session in the pool where they can also learn the same important scuba diving skills as the bubblemakers.
Diving for kids on Lanta is one of the most exciting things your children will do on their holiday, getting them interested in the underwater world, keeping them away from their smartphones for a couple of hours!
Participants should be able to swim in water too deep to stand up in, but they don't have to be super swimmers.
Speedboat Dive Trips
If you really love learning the scuba skills in the swimming pool, you can also book a PADI Discover Scuba Diving session on one of our speed boats to real dive sites and coral reefs, such as Koh Haa, Koh Bida, or Koh Rok! (age 10+)
After experiencing the wonderful underwater world at the dive sites around Koh Lanta with PADI Discover Scuba Diving, the next step is to take the 4 day PADI Open Water Diver course and gain an internationally recognised scuba diving certification (age 10+).
