At Gillmanoids, we believe in the future – our children! We believe that the future does lie in their hands.
We believe children should enjoy themselves getting acquainted and becoming ‘friends’ with water and then the sea. It is up to us to provide them with an environment that is safe so that they have fun…safe fun is the buzzword.
We are aware that children continually want to explore and experience…. and that is how they learn. We want to nurture that enthusiasm not douse it – and we want you as the parent to be convinced that in exposing children to water, we place a premium on SAFETY…only then FUN !
Programmes at this level are introductory ones for your child to experience fun underwater and at the same time be educated.

A lot of fun related activities are thrown in because children learn best (…and adults too ) when they are having
Children 10 years and above can join the PADI Junior Open Water programme and progress to the Junior Advanced Open Water and Junior Rescue Diver programmes.
We conduct special programmes during school holidays – the PADI AWARE Kids. We include lots of additional activities ranging from aquarium visits, get-togethers, dive-parties, beach clean-ups and more.
