Scuba Diving Resort Information

Scuba diving is a rapidly gaining popularity and thanks to solid training methods is no longer considered a dangerous sport. The Dominican Republic offers many fantastic diving locations. An average water temperature of 28 degrees Celsius and incredible underwater visibility of up to 30 meters are ideal conditions for people who want to learn scuba diving during their vacation. Most Dominican Republic diving destinations have at least one dive center where you can rent equipment, fill up your oxygen tank, arrange for (specialty) dives or take some classes. These services can also be found in many all-inclusive resorts. When you are not in the water you can enjoy all the virtues that come with staying in the Dominican Republic. For Scuba divers life does not get any better than this!

Scuba diving, once an elite sport, is now more accessible than ever thanks to teaching methods developed by diving associations like PADI, ACUC, NAUI, CMAS and SSI, which are designed to minimize the risk of diving accidents. PADI is by far the largest international diving association.

Exuberant colors, incredibly varied marine life, healthy reefs, plenty of ship wrecks, caves and cliffs, guarantee that your wildest diving dreams can become reality while vacationing in the Dominican Republic.

Various Dominican all-inclusive resorts have diving schools on their premises that offer complete diving courses as well as free introductory scuba dive lessons in the pool that include fitting you with scuba gear, a brief lecture on the basics of diving and a pool session that gives you an idea about how it feels to breath under water. This is a great way to help you to determine if a scuba course is something you might enjoy.

If so, learning to dive at an all-inclusive resort does come with some advantages. You can rest assured that experienced and certified diving professionals will conduct the courses. You also don’t have to feel guilty leaving your family or friends alone for some time since the resort offers plenty of facilities to keep them busy. On the other hand diving schools at all inclusive resorts have large size classes and the motivation of the students can vary.

Experienced divers will generally choose a dedicated dive resort that includes 2-4 boat dives per day plus unlimited shore diving in their package. This allows for lot of diving pleasure while the costs are being kept under control. Finding an independent dive school is of course a great alternative. Staff members surely will be able to assist you with finding a suitable and cozy place to stay.

In all cases I recommend talking to your dive school owner and dive instructor before deciding where to take your scuba dive lessons no matter when you are a novice or when you want to take a specialty course like wreck diving, underwater photography or rescue diver. There is nothing wrong with having fun but too much joking around will undermine the quality of your diving course.

Experienced divers suggest that you do not bring your oxygen tank and weights unless you travel to remote areas.
