Dive1Unlimited.com I offer custom scuba certification. The cost is $110 over the required PADI fees and material. I am doing this to gain students and increase my numbers, however, won't skimp on safety and quality of instruction. Need at least 2 students to make this work. PADI fees/material are approx $100.

If Aqua Man and Wonder woman had a child, they would take said child to MBT.

Does anyone know at what age does a child have to be before they can go through a certification course?

My daughter is 10 and is showing a lot of interest, but I will probably make her wait another year or two. Thanks for the info!!

Take your daughter down to Dive pros and let her watch the students being trained. Call CJ and ask her about a scheduled class time to go down. The instructors will know if she is ready or not.

I can't tell you who the best instructors are (no one can) you just have to find one that you like and go with it.

as for children go, 10 does sound young, but my son took his open class when he was 12 and my daughter did hers at 10 (about a year apart). I was a little concerned that they were both too young but they both did really well. I was surprised.
