Due to supervisory ratios and standards set fourth by the RSTC and our own concerns for the safety and well-being of your children – the minimum age to take the Scuba Fusion referral or certification program is 12 years of age.
Elsewhere in the world there are many children’s programs for children at age 8 to start to get a taste of scuba diving under strict supervision and depths not exceeding 6 feet (2m) of water. This is typically done in a pool. In general, children must be 10-12 years old to be certified as “junior” divers, who may dive only under restricted conditions, such as limited depth and supervision by a scuba professional or certified adult diver. At 15, students receive the same certification as adult divers.
