Cozumel, Mexico, December 08, 2011 --(PR.com
)-- Kids fascinated with underwater marine life can enjoy an up close and personal look at coral formations and colorful fish with Presidente InterContinental Cozumel Resort & Spa’s “Bubblemakers” program, a PADI-certified, scuba diving program for kids eight to nine years old.
PADI-certified instructors with Scuba Du, Presidente InterContinental Cozumel’s on-property, Five-Star PADI dive center, provide kids with their first glimpse of the world’s second largest coral reef system as part of this introductory diving experience.
The two-hour session starts with on-land instruction including proper use of the scuba equipment – and then the fun begins!
Upon wading approximately 15 yards into the crystal-blue Caribbean waters from the resort’s private, white-sand beach, children will scuba dive down to a depth of six feet under direct supervision of the dive instructor.
“It’s a great opportunity for kids to experience the wonders of diving alongside older siblings and parents who are already certified to scuba dive,” said Antonio Madrazo, ScubaDu manager.
Non-scuba dive certified parents can watch from the pier above as kids explore corals and marine life below. Many sights they won’t see with just a snorkel and fins!
The Bubblemakers program is $72 per child for two hours of instruction. Children 10 and older can enroll in Scuba Du’s Discover Scuba Diving course.
