Q: How old do I have to be to dive?

 

A: You must be 10 years of age or older to learn to scuba dive or take

the one-day Discover Scuba Diving ("Resort") course. The child must be

able to:

-- Fit the equipment available

-- Be both mentally and physically able to participate in the course.

    Between 10 and 15 years of age, a student completing the open water

    diver course will be given a Junior certification. They must dive under

    the supervision of an adult (parent or instructor only between 10-12)

    until the age of 15 years, when their certification will be automatically upgraded.
