Junior Open Water Diver

Want your child to particiate in the scuba diving experience? Sure! The PADI Junior Open Water Diver Course is an entry level diver certification that is recognized world-wide. A PADI Junior Open Water Diver, between the ages of 10 and 11 years, may only dive with a PADI Professional, a certified parent or certified guardian to a maximum depth of 40ft. A 12 to 14-year-old Junior Open Water Diver is qualified to dive to 60ft only when accompanied by a certified diver of legal age.

What You Will Learn
  • Knowledge Development ( online, independent study or in a classroom) to understand basic principles of scuba diving

  • Confined Water Dives to learn basic scuba skills

  • Open Water Dives to use your skills and explore!

You may be able to get college credit for the Open Water Diver course.



To enroll in the PADI Junior Open Water Diver course, you must be 10 - 14 years old.


Waterskills: Before completing up the PADI Open Water Diver course, you will have to demonstrate basic waterskill comfort by doing:

  • Swim 200 metres/yards (or 300 metres/yards in mask, fins and snorkel). There is no time limit for this, and you may use any swimming strokes you want.

  • Float and tread water for 10 minutes, again using any methods that you want.


The Fun Part

The fun part about this course is . . . well, just about all of it because learning to scuba dive is incredible. You breathe underwater for the first time (something you’ll never forget) and learn what you need to know to become a certified diver. During the course, you will make at least five pool dives and four dives at local dive sites under the supervision of your PADI Instructor. After the course, if you are 10 or 11, we will issue you with a card that will allow you to dive with a certified parent or PADI Professional to a maximum of 40 feet. If you are 12 or 13 years old, we will issue you with a card that will allow you to dive with an adult certified diver to a maximum of 60 feet . When you reach 15 years old you can apply for your full PADI Open Water Diver certification card without the need for any additional training, unless you have not dived for a while and we would recommend a refresher before you go diving again. Want to go deeper after that? Try the PADI Junior Advanced Open Water Diver course.
