Scuba Diving – Fitness & Fun for the Whole Family

Planning a family vacation with kids can be difficult, as identifying activities that both parent and kids enjoy is almost impossible. PADI (Professional Association of Diving Instructors), the leading scuba diving training organization, offers family-friendly vacation options so the entire clan can experience one of the most extraordinary memories together — underwater exploration!

Learning to scuba dive presents an opportunity for kids and their parents to discover things such as sunken ships, beautiful fish and reefs. They also get to build companionship, character, self-esteem, and fitness while developing a deep (pun intended) appreciation for the planet.

This Spring, introduce your family to the wonders of family scuba diving through the following fun options:

Learn anywhere there is water. With over 5,000 PADI dive centers and resorts worldwide, you can learn to dive wherever you travel. Adults can enjoy the wonders of learning to dive while children swim with dolphins!

Get certified together. While adults get their feet wet with PADI’s Discover Scuba programs, kids can learn how to breathe underwater during a Bubblemaker class and then dive into The Seal Team for action-packed fun such as underwater photography, environmental awareness and more.

Send kids on their own adventure with Kids Sea Camp. A full week of diving activities, educational programs, and PADI courses for kids at exotic locales all over the world! Click here to check out the exciting destinations that PADI has in store for 2012.

There are more than 6,000 PADI (Professional Association of Dive Instructors) Dive centers and resorts globally, so the entire family can learn how to scuba dive virtually anywhere in the world!
