Covid 19 update: our stores are now open, with social distancing measures in place in-store and on all courses

Children aged 8-9


For children aged 8-9  who want to do something a little out of the ordinary this is the perfect introduction to scuba diving.

The PADI Bubblemaker experience is as fun as it sounds – a chance for children to blow bubbles and try scuba diving in Dive Academy's on-site heated pool, or on Friday evenings at Leweston School just outside Sherborne 

Bubblemakers will:

  • Experience scuba diving under the direct care and supervision of a PADI Instructor
  • Take their first breaths underwater and experience weightlessness
  • Learn about and use scuba diving equipment made for children – not adults
  • Play games such as underwater frisbee and underwater egg and spoon
  • Have lots of fun

All participants receive a PADI Bubblemaker certificate recognising their efforts.

If the PADI Bubblemaker experience has inspired your child to learn more about scuba diving and the underwater world, PADI Seal Team is the next step.
