Scuba Diving at Lakitira Beach Resort

Lakitira’s PADI dive school offers courses for beginners to advanced divers from the age of 10, and for children aged 8 and 9 years there's a special youth programme that takes place in the pool.

If you are keen to learn but unsure if diving is for you, come along to a free ‘try’ dive in the pool under the supervision of one of our PADI instructor. Here you can learn about the equipment, get a feel for wearing it and learn underwater breathing techniques.

Safety First

Your safety is important so if you would like to scuba dive, you'll need to complete a medical history form. You may also need a physical check-up. If you're over 45 years of age or have a previous medical condition, please bring a doctor's certificate confirming that you're fit to dive. Whether you can or cannot dive, will be entirely at the discretion of your qualified instructor whose main concern, at all times, is your safety.

Please ensure you check the PADI Medical Statement here to ensure you do not have any 'Yes' answers that may need a medical doctor's advice and signed approval before you can join any scuba diving course. Upon successful completion of your pre-booked dive course, there will be a PADI processing fee of £25 for your certification card. This is not included in the pre-book price.

Please note: PADI dive courses in the Mediterranean resorts can be pre-booked in the UK. All courses booked in resort are subject to local taxes, and are therefore more expensive.

Manuals are mandatory for all PADI courses and can be purchased in resort. A certification fee may also be applicable for your course.

Out and About

There are plenty of activities on offer with social tennis, watersports lessons and a variety of aerobic and fitness classes, however if you fancy getting out and about, a short distance from the beach resort is the town of Kardamena with its lively atmosphere.

Slightly further afield is the attractive and bustling Kos town with mosques, a medieval castle and ancient remains, most notably Asklepion. A day trip to the pretty cosmopolitan Bodrum is a must for those with a love of shopping, there's an exceptional choice of shops and restaurants however Bodrum still retains the character of a pretty market town.

Mark Warner is not just about families and recent feedback from those travelling without children to this resort is that "they will be back!"
