Jr. Open Water Divers

Last summer, my youngest daughter, Hashana, together with her friends Hakki, Kas, Georgia and Tristan went on a life-changing adventure – SCUBA DIVING. Their parents, being divers themselves wanted to share their passion for diving. This is one sport the whole family can engage in safely with proper training from a licensed scuba diving instructor.

It all started informally at first. Dave introduced the kids to diving by letting the kids swim, then snorkel and  try on the scuba gears in the pool. After a few sessions, the kids were comfortable enough to start their formal scuba diving lessons. Like the adult class, they had a series of lectures and pool sessions before their check-out dive in Batangas. They also had to pass the written exam before getting certified as Junior Open Water Divers.

Nothing beats sharing our passion with our little ones. I just can’t get enough taking pictures and videos of the kids enjoying themselves underwater. Scuba diving also provides a venue for the parents to  teach their children to appreciate, value and take care of our underwater environment. After all, they are the future stewards of the sea.
