Below & Beyond Your Wildest Dreams
our exclusive scuba diving experience
That diving is drifting or at anchor, you have the equipment and quality training at Club Med. You dive safely, together in small groups. Beginner and advanced courses, run by PADI, the largest dive organization in the world.
Never dived? Never fear. Our PADI® Discover Scuba Diving packages will provide you with a safe sink into scuba diving, guided by one of our very own specialists. No certification is necessary for these immersive introductions to the wonders under the sea, but you will get one at the end! For kids, our PADI® Bubble Maker class at select resorts is a wonderful way of introducing your little ones to diving. It allows children ages 8 to 10 to dive to a maximum depth of 6.5 feet in a protected zone. If you’ve never been on a scuba diving trip, this is the perfect deal for you!
If you don't consider yourself as a pro, but you've been scuba diving before, this is the place you are looking for! Club Med offers a seamless scuba diving experience including group lessons for adults and children of all skill levels. If you decide to take the plunge, we’ll provide you with state-of-the-art equipment, qualified instructors and dive locations that are all just a boat ride away from the resorts.
These packages are designed to meet the needs of those who've taken scuba trips in the past and are either still looking for a guided experience or trying to get out on their own. If you’re certified but never dived, our PADI® Open Water will take you down to undersea wonders. For expert divers, you can participate in our advanced, accompanied or autonomous diver packages with one of the following certifications:
- CMAS 1 or 2 stars
- PADI Open Water Certification or equivalent
- Local government-issued certification
To prepare for your future underwater explorations, bring a medical certificate stating that you are apt to dive. You can fill in the self-assessment questionnaire at the resort. Enjoy a safe diving experience with highly trained diving instructors.
All PADI® courses include full equipment rentals, including cylinders, wetsuits, lead belts, stab jackets, dive regulators, flippers, masks and snorkels. In addition, your rental will include professional instruction and boat trips, along with a PADI diploma certificate and handbook available on-site at extra cost. At certain resorts, dive computers are also available for rental.
To reach your aquatic paradise, boat trips will be provided by the resort. However, if you’re looking to provide your party with an extra-exclusive experience, private boat rentals will be available at an additional cost. Take your vacation to a land down under and jump into the best dive locations Club Med has to offer.
