About Us

Get ready to experience the unexpected. Be prepared for the transformation of your family 

You will be amazed at how much your kids will pay attention and be present when they know what they are about to see and do, is in real-time and will not be replayed to watch on YouTube later.  Family safety is first, and education and fun are top priorities. We love to go scuba diving, to be honest.

Kids Sea Camp partners with personally selected, highly qualified family-friendly PADI 5 Star scuba diving resorts to co-create special family event trips 100% focused on family time, family activities, and family dive training.

These trips are for families with kids and grandkids that want to learn to dive, enjoy diving together, and meet other like-minded families. Our trips include room, diving as scheduled, select excursions, meals stated, dive training for qualified students, kids dive rental gear, private instructors, private boats, and course materials for training courses purchased. Trips can also include other sports, culinary activities, yoga, and blow-karting.  Each trip is unique to the destination you choose.

At Kids Sea Camp, you can help save sharks from extinction, restore ancient corals, explore sunken wrecks, jungle bike through a 200-year-old sugar plantation, take off on a magical cruise around Darwin’s Arch, kayak the Rock Islands of Palau and dive below the majestic Pitons of St. Lucia.
