Scuba diving

Whether you’re an experienced diver or a novice looking to discover the blue planet, our diving expert can advise you on the best reefs, lagoons and shipwrecks to explore, and tailor a vacation to your standard and requirements.

With two thirds of the planet under water, it’s no surprise that there’s a whole world to discover under the ocean’s surface. It might be ancient shipwrecks you’re interesting in exploring, or endless barrier reefs – whichever waterworld you want to descend into next, we can create a vacation of great discovery.

For those keen to develop their diving or learn from scratch, many of the properties we offer have dive centers combined or available nearby. Alternatively, if you simply want to enjoy some easy snorkeling, our dive specialist (a seasoned underwater expert herself) can advise you on the best places to visit.

From the Maldives to the African coast and Australia’s Great Barrier Reef, we can tailor a diving vacation in most dive destinations in the world. And if you like, we can add in some culture, lazy days on the beach or hiking through the jungle – it’s entirely up to you.

Below you can browse some examples of dive vacations, and learn more about the different types of dive vacation we offer. If you'd prefer to talk to our dive expert about what we can put together for you based on your dive standard and your party, please contact our dive specialist.
