Kid’s Corner

Diving is not just for adults, at Rubicon Diving we offer a number of dive programmes specifically designed for children between the ages of 8 and 12. Child safety and having fun are our top priorities. Our kids dive programmes are taught by specially trained instructors in a pool, or protected confined water conditions, no more than 5 metres deep. Bring your child(ren) along and introduce them to the wonderful world of diving, you know they will thank you.

Try Scuba Pool

Just like the Try Scuba Diving programme for adultsKids Corner | Try Scuba Diving the SSI Try Scuba Pool programme is a chance for kids to have a go at diving. The main difference is that for youngsters the try dive takes place in the safer environment of the Marina Rubicon swimming pool. The structure of the kids programme is similar to that followed by adults. It is a half day course that covers equipment, theory and safety. Once these basics have been covered then it is off to the pool to begin exploring underwater and blowing bubbles!

The cost of the Try Scuba Pool package is €85. Minimum age 8.
