This experience will begin with a description and demonstration by the instructor of the gear the kids will be using – mask, fins, snorkel, BCD, regulator, computer, wetsuit.
Kids will get sized for gear to make sure that everything fits just right.
Then it is time to get in the water! Each child will get the opportunity to take their first breath underwater!!! They will swim around underwater on scuba gear with an instructor and discover the underwater world!
After everyone has gotten a chance to take their first breath underwater, the kids will take a snack/bathroom break.
Following break, it is time to play an underwater game!

Aaron’s Dive Shop is sparking a passion for scuba diving in the next generation. Through their multitude of children’s developmental scuba programs, Aaron’s is creating an environment of excitement and FUN! The programs foster children’s natural curiosity and nurture their personal growth; giving them the tools they need to further explore. Kids as young as 8 transform before your eyes from timid and anxious at the beginning of the program to confident, excited and passionate about the ocean by the end of the program. 

“Kids overcome and conquer their fears daily – of jellyfish, sharks, the depths, and the unknown.” These personal transformations reach beyond the ocean. “Small activities like setting up their own gear and putting on their wetsuit without help build confidence and independence that lasts long after they exit the water.”

The short answer is yes. 

There are medical questionnaires associated with all of our scuba activities. That doesn’t mean that if you have a medical condition that you cannot dive. BUT, it does mean that it will need to be cleared by a doctor BEFORE you can dive. 

There are also age restrictions depending on the activity.

8-10 year old’s can scuba dive in confined water conditions up to 6ft deep.

You have to be 10 years old to scuba dive up to 40ft deep. 10-12 year old’s require the additional supervision of a personal guide/instructor.
