The Luxury Included® resort company offers expert PADI® certification and training to guests staying on-resort and has issued nearly 140,000 PADI certifications to-date. Certifications available on resort span from the PADI Open-Water certification all the way to the PADI IDC Staff Instructor certification and countless specialty courses in between. Including the Lionfish Hunter PADI specialty course, where guests of select resorts will learn how to properly hunt the Caribbean invasive species and cook their own catch.

When staying at any of the resort company’s locations throughout the Caribbean, certified divers can dive daily and be transported from the steps of their suites to exotic sites that boasts colorful reefs, dynamic shipwrecks, drop-offs, and an array of underwater species. With Sandals Resorts and Beaches Resorts’ Aquacenters providing top-of-the-line equipment with everything from Scuba Pro® regulators and BCD’s, masks, snorkels, Deep Blue Fins® and tanks to state-of-the-art, twin diesel Newton boats, divers can enjoy unparalleled underwater experiences, all included. To top off the expansive dive program, guests will soon be able to explore the world-renowned waters of Curaçao at Sandals Resorts’ newest dive destination, Sandals Royal Curaçao, beginning April 2022.
