Some say oceans separate us, we believe they connect us.

OUR MISSION

To inspire families to dive and travel. To provide educational activities. To empower children and their families to explore the underwater world together.

Margo Peyton has been profession ally exploring, diving and traveling the world since 1986, guiding great adventures above and below the sea. Once Margo became a mother, she wanted to fully immerse her two children, Robbie and Jennifer, into her world. It was clear her business would be connecting children and families around the globe with educational dive-travel adventures.

"THE MOM FACTOR"

THE DILEMMA

Margo could not find a family-friendly dive resort or kid friendly instructors
for her own family.

THE CREATION

With Kids Sea Camp, Margo created and customized her own itineraries, courses and schedules.With the help of PADI, Buddy Dive in Bonaire, Divetec and Reef Divers in the Cayman Islands, around the world.

PRIORITIES

Margo’s first and foremost priority is safety. She only works with locally-owned PADI dive resorts, who’s owners will hold child safety above all things.

KID’S SEA CAMP MAGIC

The magic she says, is in her dive team of PADI Pros. They are the best in the world! They connect families from far away places and lifelong friendships are forged across borders that are revisited
again and again. .

OUR AREA OF EXPERTISE: KIDS.

For 23 years, parents and grandparents have entrusted us to care for the most cherished people in their life — their children and grandchildren. That is why we choose the highest level of quality in dive training and instruction: PADI.

The reality is that in order for adults to have a stress-free dive vacation, they must feel confident and comfortable leaving their kids in our hands, and they do! The KSC and PADI systems of diver education are the most reliable structured systems in diving. Our dive programs are designed to make learning enjoyable and safe.
