All inclusive Bahamas dive resorts where the scuba diving is free
The best resorts to stay at on the Bahamas where scuba diving is included, are Sandals resorts. There are two ‘adult-only‘ all-inclusive resorts by Sandals. These are the Sandals Royal Bahamian and Sandals Emerald Bay. If you’re certified, simply show your certification and you can dive. But even if you’re not a certified scuba diver, you can learn to dive with an experienced PADI diving instructor. But you’ll have to pay the PADI course fees to learn scuba. Alternatively, there’s a 3-hour Discover Scuba Diving Program, which carries a nominal fee too.
