A love for water, and the underwater world, can start at a very early age. Here are some of our favorite family fun ways to foster this enthusiasm.
Turn bath time into an underwater adventure with a mask, snorkel, and sinkable "treasures" or swimming "fish." This will also help with later Snorkeling and Scuba comfort, as this equipment will already be familiar to them.
Some time in a pool, a day at the beach, and/or a boating trip on the lake/ocean
These adventures are fun for kids of all ages, including parents, so it's no surprise that these are on our list. We are a family of Scuba Instructors who love, love, love the water. So, join us during our events and activities throughout the year or bring the family along on one our local or exotic trips.
SAFETY FIRST: Always monitor your child's activities.
Snorkeling - Snorkeling is a great way to begin your underwater adventures. It's your chance to start exploring a new and fascinating world. At this age, we take a calm approach to learning by offering only Private or Semi-Private Instruction. An Equipment Fitting Session is highly recommended.
