Why Should I Do A Cadet Try Dive?

There is nothing stronger than a kid’s curiosity and love of water, and the very idea of breathing underwater allows their imaginations, and thirst for adventure to ignite. The thrill of floating effortlessly mid-water in this three-dimensional environment for the first time is something they will never forget.
RAID‘s Cadet Try Dive program lets them enjoy an underwater adventure on scuba in the confines of a swimming pool under the watchful eye and protection of a qualified RAID instructor.

This program is open to young adventure seekers between 8 and 10 years old who are comfortable in the water and who can swim. All you need is a swimming costume and a towel.

Here, they will meet other people who share the same interests in unending, exciting adventures. And of course, their parents can join them while participating in the adult version of the Try Dive.
Parents will love this program as it is a structured learning experience which not only thrills the kids, but also educates them on the basics of being underwater.
Some RAID dive centers offer RAID Cadet Try Dive birthday parties, what an amazing way to celebrate turning 8.
