KIDS SCUBA DIVING

PADI JUNIOR OPEN WATER DIVER COURSE

Teaching kids and children how to scuba dive is unlike teaching adults how to scuba dive. In the last 10 years, Orpheus Dive has seen a demand of scuba diving programs for kids and we decided to spent time learning the most efficient way of conducting the kids scuba diving program and investing in proper children sized scuba diving equipment.

No big class ratio, long tiring trips in uncomfortable vehicles only ending up in some inferior accommodations. All courses are conducted by our in-house PADI Instructors.

SCUBA DIVING IN BALI FOR KIDS

PADI JUNIOR OPEN WATER DIVER COURSE FOR KIDS

PRIVATE CLASSES FOR KIDS UNDER 15

Our specially formulated PADI Junior Open Water Diver Course was designed by our resident Senior Instructor, Lester Kwok. Unlike our standard PADI Open Water Diver Course with a structured schedule, the PADI Junior Open Water Diver Course was designed to be the most flexible program we have.

From our experience with children, their natural curiosity and affinity to learn new skills, children become one of the best scuba divers. If you need scuba diving lessons for kids information, Orpheus Dive has been reputable to be one of the most exclusive centre for children. The PADI’s Junior Open Water Diver course is similar to the adult certification program and prepares kids to become full-fledged divers when they are of age. To begin the program, students must be at least 10 years old and be able to swim.

Since we started operating our weekly scuba diving courses and lessons in Bali, many Singapore scuba divers with their kids are now enjoying scuba diving more than ever. Our Bali packages are specially designed to minimize time wastage and maximizes your experience in your first scuba diving course.

To futher ensure that children under our care are given the attention they deserved, our PADI Junior Open Water Diver Course DO NOT ALLOW more than 2 kids per class. If you have more than 2 kids attending the class, we will have another instructor assigned to them. And our rental equipment includes scuba diving equipment designed for kids.

We do not condone to using small adult sizes on kids. We believe the best way for children to learn scuba diving is to use scuba diving equipment designed for their age.

WHY DO PEOPLE LIKE US

BY THE WAY, WE DO NOT PAY FOR REVIEWS AND NEITHER DO WE FORCE REVIEWS ON DIVERS

 

Lester and his team are amazing, thanks for being so professional and patient with my teens. John was also very thorough in his explanation when we came to the store. We look forward to the dive with you in Bali!

YeeLee

Very professional and kind appearance from all the staff. Joel was our dive instructor on our trip to Bali and we could not have had a better instructor! Very humble, patient and always with a smile! Strongly recommend

Victoria Anna Maria Larsson

My sister and I will like to thank our instructor, Nicholas Chow for his great patience, guidance & constant encouragement, helping us to gain diving confidence with each lesson. Kudos to him we are now Certified Padi Open Water Divers!

Adeline Yeo

Lester and Jason were just amazing!! They have been the MOST patient and accommodating a person can be. My 14 year old stepson did his jr. open water certificate with them just today and they were just amazing. It took a few extra dive attempts as he couldn’t equalise, and they were so helpful and supportive of this. They just made him feel comfortable and relaxed at all times. I really feel if we had gone to another Dive shop he would have gotten demotivated with not being able to equalise and then just stopped altogether. I’m so happy we chose orpheus Dice shop! My partner and I did 7 friendly dives between us there too (Tulamben, Bali). I can’t praise them enough… from start (at their shop in Singapore) till finish… they have just delivered the BEST service ever. Hence why I couldn’t wait to start recommended them. Lester and Jason – thanks for making our trip so amazing!! Rachel, Magnus and Leo

My child is Myopic. Can he/she dive?

Of course you can. There are two options for you. You can either choose to dive with daily disposal contact lens or you can opt to invest in a good pair of scuba diving mask with prescriptive lens

w

My child is Claustrophobic. Is that gonna cause a problem?

If you think you are suffering from either agoraphobia or claustrophobia, we would suggest that you have a word with your doctor and inform us that you would like to have a 1 to 1 instructor for your own safety. But we have conducted courses for divers suffering from either conditions.

w

Do I need to be present during the course?

Yes, we will prefer to have one accompanying parent to join us. And if you do want to dive, that is perfectly fine as long as you are present during the pool training.

w

Why do you not offer Singapore diving packages like other dive companies?

Unfortunately, this is our company policy. The visibility in Singapore’s surrounding water is about 1 metre on a good day. We want to ensure that the first experience for the child is a good one and not diving in limited visibility and create unnecessary fear in them. 

w

I am really obese. Is that gonna be a problem?

Nope, not an issue at all. As long as your doctor signs on your medical form and have given you clearance to dive, there is absolutely no reason why you can’t

w

My child is not a strong swimmer. Can he still enroll into the PADI Junior Open Water Diver Course?

As long as you are able to meet the pre-requisite, we do not see why not. However, if you have just picked up swimming and still have water confidence issues, we would suggest that you sign up for a 1 to 1 Instructor classes.

w

Can I join my child in his course?

As long as it does not exceed our company instructor to child ratio, that is perfectly fine. Due to the age of children, we want to keep our class small and give the child more attention during the course.

w

Why do you not offer nearby diving destinations such as Pulau Tioman?

We did try but we find it too tiring for the child. On an average, it takes a 5 hours car-ride follow by a 3 to 4 hours boat ride to reach Pulau Tioman. Most kids are not well rested for the course and their attention span is really short and also “snappy” during the course.
