Grenada luxury resort makes a splash with unique all-inclusive diving program
Travelers looking to explore the underwater wonders of Grenada are packing up their wetsuits and fins, heading to LaSource and diving right in. The resort’s all-inclusive program allows certified divers to enjoy a complimentary dive each day of their stay and introduces newbies to the sport through a one-day “Discover Scuba Diving” experience that culminates with an open water dive to 40 feet.
The LaSource dive crew will help tailor a dive holiday suitable for any level of experience. LaSource’s dive boat makes at least two trips each day starting at 9 a.m. with the deepest dive of the day which is planned according to the certification level of the participants. After completing several boat dives with resort instructors, guests are eligible to dive directly off of LaSource’s beach. For advanced divers, the resort offers deep water dives to depths of up to 130 feet. Some advanced dive sites include the Bianca C cruise ship wreck (90–130 feet,) the Windmill Shallows reef (60–130 feet) and the Purple Rain reef (20–80 feet.)
LaSource also offers a variety of Professional Association of Diving Instructors (PADI) courses that guests can take part in for an additional fee. Through LaSource’s PADI FastTrack option, guests can become fully certified by beginning their course work at home via CD ROM. Once arriving at LaSource, they complete material reviews, pool training and open water dives in just three days. LaSource also offers Open Water, Rescue Dive and Dive Master certifications, in addition to a number of different PADI specialty certificates.
In addition to a rich diving experience, LaSource guests can enjoy a variety of other water and land sports including snorkeling, water skiing, windsurfing, hydro-boarding, tennis, archery and golf.
