Chil­dren are el­i­gi­ble to get their PADI Open Wa­ter cer­tifi­cate from age 10 (max­i­mum depth 12m) and, from age 12, to 18m. Course struc­ture varies be­tween dive schools but it gen­er­ally takes three days and in­volves pool and ocean dives plus lessons and video tu­to­ri­als. Par­tic­i­pants need to be able to demon­strate their swim­ming abil­ity. The Gili Is­lands are ac­ces­si­ble by fast boat and ferry from Bali and Lom­bok. More: blue­marine­dive.com.
