Our specialty is understanding and meeting the needs of each family member from ages 5 to 80. That’s right we have grandparents diving at 75 and 80 years with us all over the world.
We inspire families to travel and create memories that will last a lifetime. Family Dive Adventures was created for families that expect more from a dive vacation: education, safety personalized service, and fun for each traveling family member.
We are the US reservations for family dive travel, family packages, and kids diving programs and training for each of our represented and family-friendly dive resorts. Family Dive Adventures provides year-round reservations on our Family Dive Adventures pages. We have handpicked and custom-designed family dive packages to provide individual families that want to travel on their own. These are not Kids Sea Camp weeks. But, we provide you the same care and professionalism that we do with our Kids Sea Camp trips.
The main difference between a Kids Sea Camp vacation and a Family Dive vacation is that with KSC trips you are guaranteed to have our staff and other KSC families and kids on the same trip. With Family Dive Adventures, it’s just you and your family. We will customize your family vacation your way. Family Dive Adventures puts everything in place to keep your family safe and having fun the way you have come to expect with Kids Sea Camp.
TRUST: Over the many years of traveling with us, families have learned that we put our focus on the safety and security of your children first. We put our family stamp of approval on everything we provide.
