Scuba Diving Trips For Teens - A World Of New Adventures Awaits

by Liz Seyi Digital marketing manager

Whether you are reading this because you are specifically seeking out a scuba adventure program for your teen, or it has never even crossed your mind to consider one, there are many reasons to choose a teen scuba and travel program with The Road Less Traveled (RLT). Let's take a look at just some of the benefits and outcomes for your teen.

Getting Certified - A globally recognized PADI scuba certification 

Teens don't need to have any previous scuba experience to join an RLT trip. As long as they are competent swimmers, comfortable in water, and enjoy snorkeling, they can join us and get fully certified as a PADI Open Water Diver as part of our trip. For students that have previous experience or SCUBA certifications, they can build on their skills and get the next level of certification to further enhance their scuba journey. 

Using SCUBA skills to help with Underwater Marine Service Projects

Teen scuba and travel programs with RLT also go one step further than just learning to dive. Once certified, students will work alongside marine biologists, scientists, conservationists and other experts in marine science to help with important service work to protect and enhance underwater ecosystems. Projects include restoring coral reefs in Florida and Bali,  tackling invasive species in Belize, or helping clear pollution and debris in Italy. All service hours are fully certified and will count towards school requirements and help with college admissions. 


Developing teens as part of a scuba program.

We have shared how teens will leave our programs with multiple scuba certifications and how they will get first hand experience and certified community service hours as well. But that’s not it! 

Our carefully devised trips are also unique as they also allow students to grow in themselves, develop community and friends, and have meaningful travel experiences all across the world. Our scuba programs give teens the chance to discover local cultures, practice language skills, explore local towns and cities, and immerse themselves in natural surroundings often so different from where they call home. Our varied programs combine scuba, adventure activities, cultural immersion and travel experiences to make a 2 week trip your child won't forget! 

What scuba travel programs are open for booking for next summer? 

We have a range of RLT scuba diving trips that are available for booking for the summer of 2024, and places are filling quickly!

Here are a few examples of what we mean: 

  • The Italy: Dive The Med program gives young people a picturesque European backdrop on which to learn to scuba dive or build on their existing skills, discovering all manner of captivating marine life in the process. 
  • The Florida: Conservation Is Key program focuses strongly on marine conservation, and gives young travelers the chance to work alongside the Coral Restoration Foundation as they rebuild underwater coral nurseries in the Florida Keys. 
  • The Bali: Coral And Culture trip allows teen travelers the chance to explore part of Indonesia, while getting a PADI scuba certification or further honing their existing scuba diving skills. In addition they will assist with marine conservation service work aimed at restoring coral reef systems. 
  • The Belize: Beneath The Surface program offers 14 days spent in a jaw-dropping island location even by Caribbean standards, complete with jungles, rainforests, and the world’s second largest barrier reef. 

At the time of typing this blog, every scuba adventure program detailed here has available space for 9th - 12th graders. So, please don’t hesitate to make an enquiry to learn more about your teen’s place on a trip that could be one of the most formative steps they ever take!
