Learning to Dive at Age 10
Pictured is Kaili Larkin in front of the MDA Dive Shop on Guam on her 10th birthday getting ready to learn to scuba dive. With her is her 15 year old sister Haley who has been a certified scuba diver for 5 years. Their sister Asia was certified to dive by one of her good friend’s father at Papalagi Dive Station. Since then though… The rest of the Larkin kids have done their diving certifications with MDA.
Age 10 is the minimum age to become certified to scuba dive on Guam, and in most other places. Any student divers younger than 15 will earn a PADI Junior Open Water Diver certification. When they reach age 15 the certification can then be upgraded to a PADI Open Water Diver certification.
