DebbieHad posted a reply then saw that you were there last year. We are going Feb 11 this year for 2 weeks at the Sandals Grande. Any tips to share on this resort?We plan on diving while there but also looking to tour the Island a bit and Possibly Martinique as well.

Thanks Lloyd

Most of the Dive Centers are certified thru ACUC a Canadian Certification. We dove with the Guy’s at Breezes Jibacoa a few years back and they did a great job. In November we were at Sol de Luna Mare’s in holquin area and the Dive master’s there did a great job as well.

They were attentive to all divers and quickly see who needs more supervision than others and made up groups of comparable Divers. That way everyone got to Dive to the Limits they were comfortable with. Our group was made up of 4 technical Trimix certified Divers and A Padi Instructor. They told us our depth limit was 120 feet but allowed us to dive deeper once they were comfortable with our abilities.

A group of us (11) will be there Nov27 thru till the 4. I am wondering about the Scuba diving in this area, and any contacts for diving.
Thanks Lloyd

Hi Booyeh.Dos Ochos (the Eyes) is close to Akumal and is open for both snorkling and diving. We Dove it last year , wonderfull dive ,great video and fairly warm water.there are a few others near the coast that are open as well , lots to choose from. The one near chitzin ittza (chickin pizza) is great for snorkling and if you are doing the pyramid tour the bus most likly stops there. Have fun Lloyd
Hi Kelley We are on the same flight. we get to Toronto next Wed and are spending a few days at Niagra Falls before on to Curacao. Looks like your weather in Ont. isn’t going to be so great for the next week but sure will be nice down south.


Hi flopnfly
With a fiberglass cast and a larger boot for the Fin, you can dive. Not sure what the doc would say about that though. Any break more than 3 weeks old would be healed enough for light duty swimming. Just a thought, hate to see you miss out on a good deal!

Thanks Flopnfly. We are going to dive the Mushroom Forest and the Car Pile for sure . the Superior Producer is a little deep for my Daughter but I will try to Get there.My apologies Kelley for Hijacking your thread with dive stuff. We are flying Suquest/sardine service are you onthat flight as well?We will be there two weeks , How about you?How did you make out with the email addy?Will see you at the resort or in the airport. sure looks like a fun place to go. Lloyd
