Thinking of a last minute, affordable summer getaway, but feel the Caribbean might be too hot in August? Think again. This is the perfect time to spend hot summer days way down under the water and take advantage of low season rates. Plus, visibility is at its best this time of year, so get your underwater camera ready for some Insta-wins.
Whether you are an expert scuba diver or are looking to learn how to dive, one of the best places to go is Windjammer Landing Villa Beach Resort in Saint Lucia, where rates are up to 40 percent off this time of year. They have an experienced on-site PADI dive shop called Eastern Caribbean Diving with some of the best dive masters on the island who will take you to dive walls, wrecks and a variety of beautiful reefs. They are extremely patient with beginners and have a quick-start program to get you under the water in no time; whereas experts will have their pick of nearly 20 different dive sites to choose from.
Families with kids over eight-years-old will especially love diving here as it is the only place on the island that has a kids program called Bubble Maker. We also recommend Windjammer Landing for families because of its spacious, multi-room villas, complimentary kids club and a full schedule of activities that changes daily from waterskiing to horseback riding.
Islands’ insider tip is to get a group of friends or family together for a last-minute vacation in one of Windjammer Landing’s four-bedroom villas with a private plunge pool and book the Premium All-Inclusive package here www.windjammer-landing.com/specials to save up to 40 percent off regular rates. You will receive unlimited dining at five alfresco restaurants with a-la-carte options, top shelf liquor at four bars, and complimentary access to both motorized and non-motorized water sports such as windsurfing and wakeboarding. This package is available for booking now until October 31st for stays through December 20, 2017. Plus, a special perk for only those in the know, is to come to the dive shop with nine guests and only pay for eight. The very accommodating Eastern Caribbean Dive shop has other special group rates available upon request or can create custom packages to suit your needs.
So, take that dive trip you have always wanted to do because hanging out under the water with the fish is the best place to be during hot summer days.
