PADI Seal Team


The PADI Seal Team program is an exciting underwater activity-filled introduction to the world of diving. The PADI Seal Team program gives children a chance to swim around underwater and experience the adventures of up to 15 Aqua Missions. Scuba diving for children is one of the fastest growing areas of the PADI Diving Education program.


The PADI Seal Team program introduces basic dive concepts that are EASY and FUN. With the expert help of one of our PADI dive professionals we are able to help kids take their first breaths underwater, and discover the wonders that lie beneath the surface. The PADI Seal Team is conducted in the confines of our swimming pool and each mission can be completed in about an hour. With the PADI Seal Team specialist adventures' including Night Dive Specialist, Environmental Specialist, Creature I.D. Specialist, and Search & Recovery Specialist there really is something to suit any child.


Having conducted many PADI Seal Team programs at CSI: Samui the problem we normally encounter is not getting the kid's under the water, nor getting them to understand the equipment we use, or even the basic dive theory. The problem we have is getting them out of the water. Not only PADI Instructors, but acting as positive role models, you can not imagine the massive feeling of satisfaction we get in seeing the children's eyes once they learn they can breathe under water and complete the PADI Seal Team missions to become PADI Seal Team Members.


Questions we are generally asked:

How old do I have to be?

PADI Seal Team Participants must 8 - 15 Year old and complete and sign the PADI Seal Team Statement of understanding before entering the water. The Parent or guardians signature is required for participants younger than legal age.


What equipment do I need?

Scuba equipment required for the PADI Seal Team program is supplied. This includes Mask, Fins & Snorkel, a B.C.D. (buoyancy control devise), Weight system, Tanks, wetsuit and regulator set.

What will I learn?

Under the guidance of our PADI Instructor you will be explained the basics of scuba diving and the effects it has on our body. How to take your first breaths under the water and make lots of bubbles. Basic skills and safety procedures that can carry you forward in your diving experiences. But most important of all, how much Fun scuba diving really is. With the extra mission available in the PADI Seal Team program you can chose to learn about the under water environment, identify underwater creatures, and feel the weightless environment of space. Please check out for more PADI Seal Team Missions.

How deep do we go?

The Maximum depth of the PADI Seal Team program is 4 meters.

How long is the PADI Seal Team program?

The PADI Seal Team has a basic program containing 5 Aqua Missions and takes around 5-6 hours to complete. If you want to extend your PADI Seal Team training there is an additional 10 missions to choose from each taking approximately one and a half hours each.

What can I do next?

After completing your PADI Seal Team course you will be issued with a certification of achievement. This is not a recognised diving qualification, but it is great to hang on your wall and show your friends at school. The next step is the PADI Junior Scuba Diver, or the PADI Junior Open Water Diver.
