PADI Junior Open Water

This program is conducted exactly like an open water class for anyone younger than 15, with the exception of maximum depth. JR Divers 10-11 are limited to a maximum depth of 40 feet. 12-14 years old are limited to a maximum depth of 60 ft on training dives 3 and 4, and 70 ft for dives afterward until the age of 15.

They still have to flood their masks and all the other fun stuff the adults get to do, as well as the knowledge reviews, quizzes and the test. This is a for real class! Instructor discretion on children 10 and 11 still applies. There are important concepts and safety concerns that need to be fully understood by the student.

Certified JR Divers must be accompanied by a parent or PADI professional on all dives.
