For children above 8 years of age, we offer Try Scuba Diving programs in a swimming pool or in the sea.

Following PADI diving courses for kids are available at the IDC L'Escala: 

The PADI Bubblemaker Experience

Bubblemaker is as fun as it sounds - a chance for kids to blow bubbles by scuba diving. Children who are at least 8 years old can use scuba gear to breathe underwater and swim around in shallow water with a maximal depth of 2 metres / 6 feet.

  • It is a great way to introduce children to scuba diving.
  • Available as a confined open water experience.
  • The program is conducted under the direct and continuous supervision of a diving instructor.
  • No pre-training required.
  • Children use all the basic scuba gear, which is made for children - not adults.
  • The activity lasts about 3 hours (introduction, gear up and fun included).
