Whether they’re beginners or on their way to fully-fledged diving experts, exploring the underwater wildlife and coral reefs off of various beaches around the world will certainly give the kids something to talk about when they get back to school!

If children are complete beginners, they can join the Bubblemaker lessons, where kids aged eight years and up can learn to dive in a pool with trained diving instructors. Parents can also join in if you're also beginners. For more experienced divers, the resorts offer tons of programmes, too.

Here’s a few destinations recommended by Beaches Resorts to get the kids into diving, or complete their PADI diving course, including exploring coral reefs, going nighttime dives, and discover shipwrecks, where kids can explore sunken ships from years ago!

 

TURKS & CAICOS

There’s a number of dives in Turks & Caicos, including Northwest Point, a wall that descends down to around 180 ft. and is covered with corals and frequented by sharks, turtles and stingrays; Grace Bay, where you can see snappers, nurse sharks, friendly barracuda under the dive boat and regular visitor, JoJo the dolphin; Pine Cay, where you’ll see eagle rays; and West Caicos / French Cay, where divers can see black tip and Caribbean reef sharks.
