Kids & Teenagers
Here at Ban’s we have dive activities that the whole family can enjoy!
The PADI Seal Team Program
at Ban’s Diving Resort
The PADI Seal Team is for young divers who are looking for action-packed fun in a pool by doing exciting scuba AquaMissions.
Have you ever wondered what it’s like to dive with flashlights, take digital pictures underwater or float effortlessly like an astronaut? These are AquaMissions that introduce you to wreck, navigation, buoyancy, underwater photography, environmental awareness and more!!
The best part of the Specialty AquaMissions is they reinforce safe diving skills while the kids are having fun. PADI Seals get to sample a wide variety of dives.
In addition, it provides parents with a structured program that lets their children develop skills, learn about the aquatic environment and have a lot of good, clean fun. This is also an excellent way to introduce kids to scuba diving prior to full Open Water Diver certification.
Kids can join in the family fun of scuba diving by taking the Bubble makers program. They will experience what scuba diving is like under the direct care and supervision of a PADI Instructor. This experience takes part in our swimming pool with a maximum depth of 2 meters.
Included is the Bubble makers Crew Pak which 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 a popular Bubblemaker “action figure.”
