PADI Youth Programs

What age group are PADI Youth Programs for? How soon can I get into Scuba Diving? What are the benefits? Is it safe and fun?

The PADI Youth Programs are aimed at getting your children into scuba diving as early as possible. Perhaps you already dive and want scuba diving to become a family activity, or maybe your children are already interested in the ocean environment and want to know more.
