July and August sees ‘family season’ on Gili Trawangan, especially up on the quieter northern beaches where Lutwala Dive is situated. We understand that you, the parents, are so ready for some quiet timeand relaxation, away from the hustle and bustle of normal life. But just what can you do with those young kids in tow, who can’t sit still for more than 5 mins?! Well, send them to us of course! Here at Lutwala Dive, we offer daily Bubblemaker courses: kids from as little as 8 years old can enjoy an underwater experience with one of our highly qualified and child friendly instructors! Bubblemakers will learn a little bit about how diving works and the rules they need to follow to stay safe then they get to play in the pool and learn to blow bubbles. It’s an exciting expereince for one so young and really encourages kids to grow up as water-babies, with a healthy repect but love for the water.
For children of 10yrs and upwards, a half day Discover Scuba Diving experience is available. This begins with a theory and pool session, then allows participants to enjoy a dive in the ocean, hitting a maximum depth of 12m. Children will be VERY closely supervised by their instructor at all times, with them staying side by side or even holding hands. If this goes well, children can even go on to complete their PADI Open Water course and become fully qualifed divers. A truly incredible achievement at such an age. At Lutwala, we’ve found kids to be exceptionally capable students, often outshining the adults!
For all of these courses, you are more than welcome to dump the kids with us in the morning and pick them up at lunch time! Or, if it is something you would like to take part in as a family, we can easily combine our adult and child courses, allowing you to experience the underwater world together, creating memories you’ll all share forever.
