Kids Scuba Diving
Scuba Diving experiences for the kids. PADI (professional association of dive instructors) and Scouts America have developed an experience for kids to experience what it would be like to Scuba Dive. The experience is held at a local swimming pool and lasts a couple hours. We provide all training and materials, all certified equipment needed to do this. For some it becomes a starter to full training courses, others just the satisfaction of the experience. However, for all a wonderful time.
We are also a certified and insured First Aid Training Center and would like to offer those services to your school program as well.
Information but also can be found on our web page www.langleydiving.com
