It will be unforgettable holidays for every member of your family!

With their natural curiosity and affinity to learn new skills, children can make some of the best scuba divers. If you need scuba diving lessons for kids information, here’s a quick overview of the programs available to young people and what age kids can learn to scuba dive.

Love and bubbles from the Amorgos Diving Center crew.


 

When to start scuba diving lessons for kids

A good way to determine if your child is ready for scuba diving in open water is to enroll them in the Bubblemaker, Seal Team or Discover Scuba Diving program first. The Bubblemaker program is a one day experience program in confined water for children 8 yrs old and older with a max depth of  two meters. The Seal Team program is a more extensive program for kids 8 yrs old and older that covers basic scuba diving skills in addition to fun activities such as taking underwater photos, practicing buoyancy and learning environmental awareness.

PADI’s Junior Open Water Diver course is similar to the adult certification program and prepares kids to become full-fledged divers when they are of age. To begin the program, students must be at least 10 years old and be able to swim. To ensure that young divers don’t exceed their limits, the Junior Open Water certification comes with restrictions. Divers 10-11 years old must dive with a PADI Professional or a certified parent or guardian, and dives cannot exceed 12 meters/40 feet. Divers 12-14 years old must dive with a certified adult and dives cannot exceed 18 meters / 60 feet.

After receiving a junior open water certification, young divers twelve and older may continue to increase their experience and certification levels (Junior Advanced Open WaterJunior RescueJunior Master Scuba Diver). In these courses, dives may reach a max depth of 21 meters.

After the age of 15, depth and buddy restrictions default to those of a regular PADI Open Water Diver. Divers who were initially certified as a junior diver and wish to receive a new card that simply says “Open Water Diver” can order a replacement from their PADI Dive Center or PADI’s website.

Locals enjoy a lifestyle that has been shaped by a varied and dramatic past. This is a place that appears untouched by time but where the inhabitants quietly preserve one of the best kept secrets of the Aegean.
On the one hand the wild beauty of the mountains and on the other the green valleys , give the island a unique beauty .
The beaches of Amorgos are known for their cleanliness but not only. Their natural beauty combined with the endless blue of the Aegean sea, the hot sand and the rugged rocks create the perfect setting to escape from the routine of everyday life.

HISTOIRE & CULTURE

Settlement began on Amorgos in the late 5th millennium BC at the hill-top of Minoa. The 3rd millennium BC marks the island’s first apogee, when it was an important centre of the Cydadic culture. With the arrival of Ionian settlers the 3 cities of historic times emerged Aegiali, Minoa and Arkesini. 
The arrival of refugee monks with the icon from Khoziba in Palestine in the 9th century, followed by the subsequent founding of the Chozoviotissa Monastery allegedly in 1088, was of considerable importance for the history of the island. In the medieval time it passed in the sovereignty of Francs and finally in the Venice Domination. But Amorgos had to face the pirates’ raids and in 1540 it became formally a Turkish possession.
In 1835, the island was include in the new Kingdom of Greece. In the same year a devastating fire spread from Aigiali and burned the oak forests of Mount Kroukelos, radically altering the landscape and ecology of the northern end of the island.

NAMED THE « CARIBBEAN FINGER » due to its shape, it’s one of the most loved beaches on the island but also a great place for snorkeling and to experience your first dive.

Here divers will have the possibility to familiarise with the diving equipment and the new world they just entered. The seabed is made out of skirts that lower and rise up in different levels, still staying withing shallow depth. It mainly consists out of sand and Neptune grass (Posidonia Oceana), creating a very interesting landscape.

Here we usually spot cuttlefishes swimming along in groups and very curious fishes like rainbow wrasse. The floor is dotted with very large black sponges, and other treasures like mermaids cups and octopus’s gardens.
