Christmas Shopping for the Kids – Prodivers Kuredu style

24 Nov 2017

As Christmas draws closer, shopping for the perfect gifts becomes ever more frantic. Presents for the kids will bring excitement for a few days and then many will gather dust, as the novelty wears off. If you’re coming to Kuredu over the upcoming festive season why not ring the changes with the gifts this year? Instead of giving a ‘thing’, why not give a never-to-be-forgotten experience?

Prodivers has a whole host of family-friendly water-based activities that would make perfect experience gifts this Christmas and will put a smile on the faces of parents and kids alike.

Kids activities Maldives snorkelling

Snorkelling – intro sessions, family snorkel boat trips and guided house reef tours are accessible to swimmers from age 4+. Watch their faces light up as they take their first peek at the kaleidoscopic colours of the tropical fish.


PADI Bubblemaker Experience – bubbles are always a hit with children and If they are aged 8+ treat them to this Christmas gift they will never forget. With a maximum of two children per instructor they will use the specially designed small tanks and dive equipment and learn the basics of breathing underwater before heading out to play in the lagoon at a maximum depth of 2 metres. Frisbee, torpedo and somersaults are just some of the things they can get up too whist below the surface – all with the beautiful fish swimming around them too.

PADI Junior Open Water Diver – the ultimate experience gift for children aged 10+, one that will last a lifetime and will be the passport to many exciting adventures. The children lucky enough to get this present in their stocking will get to learn all the skills needed to explore the incredible reefs to a depth of 12 meters (aged 10 and 11) or 18 meters (for those who are aged 12+). Their very own dive log will record their first underwater adventures and they will thank you for many years to come.

Now everyone knows that kids love to unwrap their presents – perhaps a mask or fins, or a Fish ID Book or underwater slate – wrapped along with a message about the experience gift and hey presto the gift is complete!

For those who want to be super organised, it’s possible to buy a diving voucher in advance – it can be used for any of the Prodivers activities.

So, that’s the kids sorted, what about the parents? That’s easy – with the new Kids Club at Kuredu parents can sign up for a dive, sneak away and relax during the boat trip, see sharks, turtles, maybe even a manta ray but above all have some well-deserved ‘time out’ – what better gift could a diving parent wish for?
