Making bubbles and discovering SCUBA!


PADI Instructor Vic and his acting certified assistant Maria conduct the PADI Bubblemaker and PADI Discover Scuba Diving program for our international clients at our Gaya Island beach house!

It’s the first time for all our clients to ever breathe underwater, and the most typical description of it our PADI Instructors hear is, ‘it’s weird!’

Our Instructors, like Vic, will encourage their student divers to relax and give the time they need to acclimatize to the new sensations of scuba diving.

Rest assured, PADI standards require the participants to be taught steps from basic to complex, so their dive education is a gradual development.

The PADI Bubblemaker is for children aged 8 and 9 years old, and is structured in the same way as the PADI Discover Scuba Diving program, which is for participants who are 10 years of age or older. It’s easy for Vic to conduct both programs concurrently and adhere to PADI standards, and Go PRO intern Maria will receive so much benefit from observing Vic’s instructional skills.

family discovers scuba

Our PADI Open Water Scuba Instructor Mel shows the wonders of the underwater world to a family visiting our Gaya Island premier PADI 5 Star IDC beach house.

Mel has one junior diver and she is younger than 10 years old and participants on the PADI Discover Scuba Diving program must be at least this age. However, she is still able to join her parents under the water with the PADI Bubblemaker program.

The PADI Bubblemaker course is a great introduction for children and the maximum depth is 2 metres. In the Tunku Abdul Rahman Park, we have a variety of reefs to choose from that are suitably shallow to conduct the program. Mel will supervise and conduct the different programs to allow the family to dive together and share an unforgettable experience!
