Bubble Maker

The Bubblemaker is the very first step in scuba diving! A great introduction aimed at beginners aged 8 – 9 years old. For children and is as fun as it sounds – a chance for kids to blow bubbles by scuba diving. Children who are at least 8 years old can use scuba gear to breathe underwater and swim around in shallow water. Have a party or celebrate a birthday by throwing a memorable, exciting Bubblemaker event with friends, or join the rest of the family in the fun of scuba diving. A child must be 8 years old or older. Kids don’t need to be expert swimmers but must be comfortable in the water, but no prior experience is necessary. Parental approval and accompaniment is required on the Bubblemaker experience.
