Considering that children are allowed by the major diving agencies to start diving as pre-teenagers, there is actually very little gear available for them that is aimed specifically at this market. But there are a few items that are aimed at, or suitable for, their smaller body sizes and here are a selection of what there is on offer.

Wetsuit – The Cressi Junior Wetsuit is an excellent piece of equipment aimed at the junior diver. From the name you can see that it is aimed at the junior diver rather than just being a smaller version of an adult’s wetsuit. If shouts comfort throughout, with a diagonal zip, sealed and zipped cuffs, an integrated hood, reinforced knee pads and a shape that is designed for easy kitting up and removal. This should easily keep your little one warm for a decent length of dive!
