PADI Youth Diving Programs:
• SASY – Supplied Air Snorkeling for Youth – ages 6 - 7
• Bubblemaker – ages 8 - 9
• Jr. Scuba Diver  – ages 10 - 12

SASY (Ages 6 - 7)

Designed for kids ages 6 to 7 years old and still too young to dive, Supplied Air Snorkeling for Youths (SASY) program allows young children to participate in snorkeling with a BCD-like floatation device, a compressed air tank, and a regulator. Children can swim on the surface without fear of inhaling water through a snorkel tube, and the SASY jackets provide ample buoyancy and hold the compressed air securely in place.

Bubblemaker (Ages 8 - 9)

Children ages 8 to 9 can experience what it's like breathing underwater! In water no deeper than 6 feet, kids get to experience the thrill of Scuba diving in Roatan in a controlled environment and direct supervision of a PADI Pro. As part of the program, all participants will receive a PADI Bubblemaker decal, tattoo, toy, and certificate of completion.

PADI Junior Scuba Diver (Ages 10 - 12)

The PADI Junior Scuba Diver course offers a gateway for the next generation of scuba divers into the captivating underwater world. This course establishes the foundation of diving basics and equips participants with theoretical and practical scuba diving knowledge. Safety, diving principles, and fostering a love for diving are integral aspects of this program.

Please note: Our Dolphin Scuba Camp includes the PADI Jr. Scuba Diver course, a subset of the PADI Jr. Open Water Diver course (it is not the complete course.) This course certifies individuals to dive up to a depth of 40 feet while accompanied by a PADI instructor.

PADI Jr. Scuba Diver consists of the following three phases:

  1. Knowledge Development: to understand the basic principles of scuba diving - just the first three sections of the five required for the Open Water Diver course.
  2. Confined Water Dives: to learn basic scuba skills - just the first three of the five required for the Open Water Diver course.
  3. Open Water Dives: to use skills and explore - just two of the four required for the Open Water Diver course.

Equipment Notice:

  • Scuba diving equipment rentals (regulators, buoyancy control devices, and tanks) are included.
  • Snorkeling equipment rentals (mask, fins, and snorkel) are not included.

Snorkeling equipment is not included in the package rate due to the critical nature of sizing, especially for young children. Properly fitting snorkeling equipment is vital for safety and comfort during underwater activities. An ill-fitting mask or snorkel can restrict your child's participation and even prevent it entirely. Since children come in all shapes and sizes, finding the most suitable snorkeling gear for each child is an individual process that can't be standardized.

While the resort does offer snorkeling gear for rent or purchase, the available sizes and styles might be limited during your visit. We recommend you visit a nearby diving retail center and consult a trained sales professional to select your child's best-fitting mask, snorkel, and fins. After you've purchased the snorkeling gear, we suggest having your child test it in a controlled environment (like a beach, swimming pool, or bathtub) for potential leaks. Fins should be snug but not too tight. If a water test is not possible, let your child wear the fins while seated for a few minutes to ensure comfort. This extra time and effort invested in finding the right snorkeling gear will ensure your child's safety, enhance their enjoyment, and build their confidence in the water.
