PADI Bubblemaker course is designed specifically for children. Diverse Borneo, a PADI 5 Star Instructor Development Centre teaches children scuba diving in the Tunku Abdul Rahman Park, Kota Kinabalu, Sabah and we provide safe scuba diving programs for children aged from eight years old.

We request that parents follow our PADI diving instructors whilst teaching your children how to scuba dive in Kota Kinabalu by either taking our snorkeling program or going for scuba diving. The PADI Bubblemaker course is designed to introduce children to scuba diving in a pool or confined open water in water no deeper than two metres.

At Diverse Borneo we teach children in confined open water at one of the white sandy beaches in crystal blue waters in the Tunku Abdul Rahman Marine Park. This scuba diving program is a great way to celebrate a birthday because it’s fun, easy and we ensure dive safety with our Professional scuba diving instructors.

With youngsters in mind, the maximum depth is only 2 metres (equals to 6 feet height) for 8 – 9 year olds. For children ages 10 years and above they are able to to take part in one of our PADI Discover Scuba diving day tours or take the full license, the PADI open water diver course.

Your children will get a chance to experience what scuba diving is like under the direct care and supervision of Diverse Borneo’s highly rated PADI Instructors, where they take their first breath underwater and learn about different marine life and use of scuba diving equipment made for children – not adults.
