Resort Based Holidays

Outstanding Resort Based Holidays with Ultimate Diving

A resort based diving holiday is the perfect way to combine both worlds into one holiday. You can explore the oceans in the morning doing your daily diving and take in the beauty of the surrounding landscapes in the afternoon. This type of holiday is also the perfect option if you have a non-diving partner as you can both enjoy a fantastic holiday, both doing the things you enjoy when away from home.

Resort based diving holidays can be found all over the world and our selected resorts, hotels and dive centres were carefully chosen to ensure you get an outstanding diving adventure. You can enjoy the flexibility of a diving itinerary whilst exploring some great beaches, enjoy the local culture and meet indigenous people.
