Hi Julie!
Great Question. Most agencies require that you are 12 years old in order to get a certification as a junior diver and have all the priveleges. PADI and SSI allow certification at 10 years old. Personally, I am not a fan of the 10 year old registration, based on information from the doctors at Divers Alert Network at Duke University.
