Project Description

Our PADI 5 STAR IDC Centre is the perfect location for kids to try Scuba Diving!

The PADI Bubblemaker program is for children aged 8 and above. It’s fun, easy and safe. The PADI Bubble maker program is a way for youngsters to join in the family fun of scuba diving or even start a trend! Children should be comfortable in the water, but they don’t have to be super swimmers since the maximum depth is only 2m/6ft.

Safety on all our courses and programs is paramount. We adhere to PADI standards and procedures and follow British HSE guidelines.

The exciting Kids Bubblemaker Program …

  • is for children 8 years and older who want to have fun underwater
  • is also available as an open water experience (2m/6″ max. depth)
  • is conducted by PADI Instructors
  • requires no pre-training
  • uses equipment made for children – not adults
  • can be a half day or full day program

Get your kids interested in the underwater by enrolling them on the PADI Kids Bubble Maker Scuba Diving Course.

It doesn’t get any better than Downbelow!
They planned our entire 2 week stay in Borneo, we didn’t have to lift a finger. We saw everything you can imagine; Pygmy Elephants, Orang Utans, Proboscis Monkeys, Crocodiles, Horn bills! They know all the best local spots and really take care of you which is so important when traveling somewhere new!

Excellent Customer Service
My wife and I used Downbelow for three trips whilst in KK over CNY. From the initial email enquiring about a hike up Mount Kinabalu up until the end of our holiday, the service we received has been outstanding.

Professional All the Way !I did my IDC (instructor development course) here and was taught by the most professional and fun staff! I even decided to stay on to do more specialties because of how much I am learning. They really take you into their care and make sure you are comfortable every step of the way. Would recommend to anyone who wants a fun diving experience!
