Reconnect family on Maldives diving adventure with kids, immerse them in amazing underwater world where they can discover all kinds of cool marine creatures, experience the thrill of breathing underwater and the feeling of weightlessness and learn a lot about the environment with science thrown in too.

Active kids means happy kids! Taking time out from the daily duties for vacation is a great way to rejuvenate your family. Scuba diving and snorkeling in the Maldives is an exciting activity that usually benefits the entire family. Kids from as young as 8 can join in the diving and snorkelling fun with Prodivers Maldives at KureduLily Beach and Innahura.

PADI Bubblemaker Experience

PADI Bubblemaker Experience in maldives

Bubbles are always a hit with children and if they are aged 8+ they can enjoy an adventure they will never forget. With a maximum of two children per instructor they will use the specially designed small tanks and dive equipment and learn the basics of breathing underwater before heading out to play in the lagoon at a maximum depth of 2 metres. Frisbee, torpedo and somersaults are just some of the things they can get up too whilst below the surface – all with the beautiful fish swimming around them too. Available at Kuredu, Lily Beach and Innahura.

PADI Junior Open Water Diver

PADI Junior Open Water Diver cource in maldives

The ultimate experience for children aged 10+, one that will last a lifetime and be the passport to many exciting adventures. The children will learn all the skills needed to explore the incredible reefs to a depth of 12 meters (aged 10 and 11) or 18 meters (for those who are aged 12+). Their very own dive log will record their first underwater adventures and they will thank you for many years to come.

We recommend taking advantage of the eLearning program – simply select the resort you will be at and then select the PADI Open Water Diver course and you’ll get the online course materials and your child will be able to complete all the learning in their own time before arrival – they can even make use of the journey time! Once here with Prodivers they will just have to go through the water activities in the lagoon and on the reefs – no classroom time!

This experience is available at KureduLily Beach and Innahura.
