Caribbean holidays rarely come with the flexibility achieved by Sandals Resorts, where a plethora of land and water sports are amplified by exceptional diving and golfing programmes that distinguish their luxurious portfolio.

Top-of-the-line equipment includes state-of-the-art Newton Dive Boats, aluminium dive tanks, silicon masks, weight belts, PADI® certified staff and unparalleled dive locations spread across the Caribbean. Student-Instructor ratios are kept at 4-to-1 for safe, enjoyable diving, so you can delve deeper into the hidden narratives of the Caribbean’s most spectacular destinations.
New Divers Welcome
Sandals Resorts have an excellent programme for new divers, too. Get involved with their exclusive PADI® Certification Programme and go from diving novice to nautical pioneer in roughly 3 hours. You learn all the key diving skills in a dedicated dive pool, practise your swimming and wading skills, and benefit from an informative video covering all the fundamentals.

The programme has already created 70,000 PADI® certified divers, making Sandals Resorts one of the top 5 diving institutions in the Western Hemisphere.
