Training Jr. Open Water Divers
Greetings to all of you mermaids and mermen from the tropical, crystal clear waters of Bonaire. As you know, here at Carib Inn we love to treat our guest to the most personalized and unique experience as possible. One of the things that makes us proudest is the Jr. Open Water course. It’s a unique experience for kids between the ages of 10 and 14 years old. You need adequate swimming skills and need to be in good physical health. No prior experience with scuba diving is required.
What will you learn?
The PADI Open Water Diver course consists of three main phases:
- Knowledge Development ( online, independent study or in a classroom) to understand basic principles of scuba diving
- Confined Water Dives to learn basic scuba skills

You may be able to get college credit for the Open Water Diver course.
