An underwater world just for kids

by posted in NEWS

Children as young as eight and nine will love their first diving experience on the reef surrounding Six Senses Laamu with the “Bubblemaker” course. We offer special equipment for children, with lighter tanks and smaller sized wetsuits, masks and fins.

The dive instructor will meet you on the beach and give you an introduction to diving. Two children are assigned per instructor, so two siblings or friends can join and have fun together. This first diving course lasts about two hours and the maximum depth reached is two meters.

The house reef is home to many colorful coral and fish, such as trumpet fish and parrotfish and also to some fish celebrities such as Dory (Blue Tang fish) and Nemo (Clown fish). Even at this depth, there is also the chance to spot our resident turtles.

Children can learn more about the marine life of the Laamu reefs and conservation during environmental activities at the Den. But don’t worry this is playtime not school time! Our Resident Marine Biologists share fun facts about turtles, dolphins, groupers, reef fish and more, and there are plenty of games along the way. The Manta Trust also visits the Den once a week so you can discover the ocean life of manta rays via video.

For those who wish to remain on the surface, snorkeling on the house reef with mom and dad is always fun. And the all-time favorite experience, aside from the ice cream, is a picnic on a deserted island for the whole family, where everyone can enjoy walks on the sandy beach, watching the crabs scavenge for food and snorkeling on the colorful and lively reef beyond.
