Scuba Rangers Club

diveSSI Image: SRangersScuba Rangers is not just a diving course, it can also be a long term activity if they want to become part of a Scuba Rangers Club! During the club sessions they learn about our environment, get more diving experience and have a fun time together. They will try underwater photography or night diving with torches in the swimming pool, visit zoos and aquariums, go to the cinema or take part in other challenging activities.

Safety

Safety is a top priority. Scuba Rangers programs can only be taught by specially trained instructors in a pool (or under confined water conditions in a protected area) up to a maximum depth of 4 meters (12 feet). In depths greater than 1.50 meters (5 feet) there is a one-to-two instructor-to-student ratio.

Scuba Rangers Instructors

SSI Instructors are only allowed to teach if they are affiliated with an SSI Facility. This concept - unique in the industry - allows direct monitoring of all active SSI Dive Professionals to ensure the highest quality education.

The Scuba Ranger Instructors who teach children diving school courses have not only been deemed excellent divers by our strict SSI standards, they have also had special training in how to teach diving to children specifically. During the Scuba Rangers sessions and club activities, safety always comes first; the instructor-student ratio is always respected, and sufficient medical resources are always close at hand.
