Bubblemaker is as fun as it sounds – a chance for kids to blow bubbles by scuba diving. Children who are at least 8 years old can use scuba gear to breathe underwater and swim around in shallow water. Have a party or celebrate a birthday by throwing a memorable, exciting Bubblemaker event with friends and family.
Bubblemakers get a chance to:
- Experience scuba diving under the direct care and supervision of a PADI Pro.
- Take their first breaths underwater in water shallower than 2 metres/6 feet.
- Learn about and use scuba diving equipment made for children – not adults.
- Have lots and lots of fun.
How long is the course?
Usually we start this experience mid-morning with a safety briefing followed by selecting the correct diving equipment for your child. We will then break for lunch, then head to our Home Reef. Once there, your little one will learn some basic scuba skills and enjoy a dive on SCUBA in very shallow water. There will be the opportunity to make a second dive too.
Please note: PADI Open Water Diver Course and the PADI Advanced Open Water Diver Course. prices include complete rental from our range of the latest and most modern diving equipment; transportation to and from the dive sites in one of our air-conditioned mini-buses or Boat; plus PADI certification on successful completion of your course.
Extras: Educational materials such as PADI Crew-packs and manuals (required reading for most courses) and diving equipment can be purchased from the Diving shop. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to confirm prices.
To enrol in the PADI Bubblemaker, you must be 8 or 9 years old.

Evaluation & Medical Forms
The Alegria Provincial Government established a Marine Park Entrance Fee System based on tickets. Tickets are purchased for a fee of 100 Pesos (about 2 $) per dive. The local government will utilise these funds to finance a number of high priority conservation programs in the area, including patrols and enforcement to abolish destructive fishing practices such as blast and cyanide fishing, village improvement programs within the park, collection and disposal of plastic and other wastes entering the park’s waters, marine conservation education of village children and adults, and reef and mangrove rehabilitation. Tickets can be purchased through Sta. Filomena Marine Sanctuary in Alegria or at Alegria Dive Resort. We greatly appreciate your support and cooperation with this entrance fee system. Conservation of Sta. Filomena’s spectacular marine habitats requires funding, and your entrance fee is a valuable contribution to saving Alegria’s reefs.
