Diving and adventure

Like many families, you may be searching for a holiday that combines diving with other activities to broaden your children’s horizons while also keeping them active and entertained.

Many of our dive destinations have superb topside attractions as well as great diving, from the incredible wildlife of Africa or the Galapagos Islands to the history and culture of Jordan the beaches and culture of Thailand to the excitement of Mexico or Belize.


Often, not all the family are divers, so it pays to have a destination that offers great snorkelling opportunities as well, allowing the family to continue to share in the same holiday experiences.

The vibrant Indian Ocean reefs of the Maldives and the Seychelles are wonderful for both divers and snorkellers, while the calm, clear waters of the Caribbean are ideal destinations for families too, with Bonaire, Curacao, the Bahamas & Honduras worthy of particular mention.

Family friendly accommodation

Taking the family on a special holiday need not be an expensive affair. Choosing the right accommodation is key to keeping a lid on costs. Family villas or apartments are an ideal choice, providing an ideal environment for your family while saving crucial pennies.

We offer larger apartments or villas in Mexico, Bonaire and Oman that are ideal for families. Wherever you wish to visit, we are very happy to discuss your requirements and recommend the most suitable accommodation for you.
