The SSI Scuba Rangers Program is a club that offers numerous diving activities for children ages 8 - 12 that are interested in going underwater!
The kids learn how to use a full kit of scuba equipment, as well as underwater skills, while having loads of fun!
It is a great introductory step for the little ones that are not old enough to become Open Water Divers, and it usually makes a big positive difference on their learning curve for when they get to be old enough.
Safety is a top priority and Scuba Rangers programs are only taught by specially trained instructors in a pool, or under confined water conditions in a protected area up to a maximum depth of 15 feet. Our pool at UWC is also heated to 88 degrees, year round!
Course fees include:
Instruction in the pool and in classroom
All scuba equipment rental
Children’s Mask, Snorkel & Fins kit
When filling out the student form for your class, you will have the chance to tell us which dates work best for you. If there is still availability for that particular class, we'll reserve your spot and you are all set! In case the class you choose is already full, our staff will call you to schedule to a different class instead.
Classes have a maximum amount of students allowed.
Lastly, all scuba diving classes require a current medical release (it expires every 12 months). All questions must be answered with a fully written YES or NO. If any answer is a YES, please have your physician fill out page 2 and bring it with you on the day of your class. If all answers are NO you do not need a physician's signature.
Take time to read it ahead of class, so you have the chance to make any appointments with your physician if needed.
You can find the most current version of the Scuba Medical Release here.
