Dive for Free! Sandals and Beaches & Get PADI Certified

Scuba at Sandals and Beaches
Sandals

News Flash:    Sandals and Beaches Resorts have the LARGEST scuba dive fleet in the world.    They put more people in the water (for Free) than any other dive company.

In a nutshell:  Sandals and Beaches allows you to dive for Free!  Explore some of the best diving in the undersea world surrounding Jamaica, Bahamas, Barbados, Granada, Saint Lucia, or  Antigua.

Not Certified and New to Diving?
So let’s say you want to go scuba diving in the Caribbean and you just don’t know where to begin. That’s where this PADI Discover Experience comes in – it’s s a three-hour intro-course and is for anyone that is new to diving – maybe it’s something on your bucket list.

After the intro course, you’ll be able to dive one time per day (up to 30-feet at Beaches and 40-feet at Sandals). And no worries, you’ll have access to a certified dive staff and the best equipment.

So why Dive at Sandals or Beaches? 
Sandals and Beaches have certified over 100,000 divers. They’re also one of PADI’s (Professional Association of Diving Instructors) Top 5 Dive Operators in the Western Hemisphere.   And, their Caribbean locations offer some of the best diving in the world.

If you like your introduction to diving and want to pursue certification  – take the PADI online learning program at home (about 8-hours of work) – and then you can take your open-water certification on your next Sandals or Beaches vacation (about $250 for your open water certification – the same as at home) – and go diving anywhere in the world.

Why do your open water certification in some backwater swamp where visibility is 3 ft and water temp is 42F degrees?    Do it in the warm Caribbean wearing just your bathing suit.    I have had both experiences and I am not going back into that swamp back home.

Sandals Resorts are located in Antigua, Barbados, the Bahamas, Grenada, Jamaica, and Saint Lucia and you’ll find Beaches Resorts in Turks & Caicos and Jamaica.  The best part – scuba diving is included – certified divers can dive every day (except arrival and departure days).

So grab your fins and take a giant stride!  There’s a whole new world waiting to be discovered.
