The Snorkel Dive is an innovative tethered system that is designed to make it easier than ever for children and young scuba divers to build up their experience and diving technique safely.

The system works in a multiple-step manner. In the first step, kids swim at surface level while tethered up to a wave-proof air supply. This allows them to watch and take in the instructions of more experienced divers. At step two, kids can descend to depths of one to two meters, from where they can learn how to carry out a slow ascend, clear their ears and so on -- all whilst being tethered to a safety system and being under the watch of an experienced diver. At the third step, kids can access depths of two to six meters.

Ultimately, the Snorkel Dive system uses safety tethering to enable children to learn scuba diving at a slow and healthy pace, which decreases the likelihood that they get hurt.
