Course Description

The PADI Seal Team program teaches responsibility and respect for the aquatic realm. It’s broken into two parts.

Part One
AquaMissions 1 - 5

Part one covers basic scuba diving skills, such as breathing underwater, clearing a mask of water, recovering a regulator, and swimming around experiencing the sensation of being weightless.
Complete these AquaMissions and become a recognized PADI Seal Team Member. Your experience may also count toward the PADI Open Water Diver course when you’re old enough to participate in the course.

Part Two
10 specialty AquaMissions

Participate in adventures like creature identification, search and recovery diving, and skin diving. Complete all 10 AquaMissions, and become a PADI Master Seal Team Member – joining an elite group of young scuba divers.

Our two-day sessions will always cover Part One. Attend subsequent sessions and our PADI professionals will customize and build on each Seal Teamer's experience working towards the completion of part two and/or increasing skill knowledge.
