Childrens Diving Courses.

Here at Sussex Diving and Leisure we are great believers in making Scuba Diving a family activity, that's why we a so passionate about getting children involved early. Our courses and experiences enable children as young as 8 to become involved in diving, they can even start learning some of the PADI Open Water skills giving them a head start on the Jr Open Water skills when they are 10 years old.

All our instructional staff are CRB checked and we only ever teach children on low instructor / student ratios.

Keeping you safe...

Our first consideration as always is your safety, in an effort to ensure this all our training will be undertaken in line with the industry best standards.

  • Out training group sizes will be strictly limited to 4 students and two PADI professionals.
  • All equipment will be washed, sterilised between uses and stored in a well ventilated area for at least 36hrs before re-use.
  • If you are undertaking a course that takes more than one session your equipment will be issued to you at the start of the course and you will be asked to keep it and care for it between sessions, thus eliminating any chance of cross infection.
  • Unfortunately numbers in our pool facility and at dive sites are strictly limited at this time to allow for social distancing therefore may not be possible to allow spectators.
  • All students will be expected to observe social distancing, unless from the same cohort.
  • Divers are asked NOT to clear masks by spitting, anti fog will be supplied free of charge at out sanitising station.
  • All entry level courses booked after the 18th of April include a brand new diving mask and where required snorkel for you to keep again ensuring you are the only person using your equipment.
