The best part about this group of 11 to 16 year olds was that they were a mix of certified divers as well as new Open Water students, all ready to dive the beautiful reefs around Havelock Island. Theory of Boredom Teaching kids how to dive is a bit of a challenge. Although they have no fear and can’t wait to get into the water, completing the theory component of the course is not always something that excites them. For them to become safe and comfortable divers they need
