SSI Scuba Rangers Program

SeaVentures’ SSI Scuba Rangers Program is designed for young divers, ages 8-12. This program includes three sessions consisting of classroom review and skills practice in SeaVentures' heated indoor pool. Rangers learn the same scuba skills as adults, but through fun, interactive games. During this course, students:

  • learn about dive equipment and assemble, break-down and care for their scuba gear

  • demonstrate basic snorkeling and scuba skills, including, mask and regulator clearing, air-sharing, regulator retrieval, and more 

  • practice buddymanship, proper body positioning, trim and neutral buoyancy 

  • perform basic surface rescue skills

  • learn basic physics and ecology related to diving.

Students earn Recognition Awards as they work their way through the five levels of our Scuba Ranger Development Program, and can achieve Intermediate, Advanced and Master Scuba Ranger status as they continue in our Ranger Specialty Classes. Try Scuba prerequisite is required so don't wait until the last minute to register!
