On the water. Or in it.
Our all-inclusive activities keep you fit and keep you entertained.
Four Swimming Pools
Choose from four sumptuous swimming pools, regulated to exactly the right temperature for activity or just a gentle few lengths. The atmosphere couldn’t be better; surrounded by palm trees… Thirsty? Just swim up to our poolside bar and indulge in a professional mixologist cocktail.
Say goodbye to your worries as you relax in one of our three bubbling Jacuzzis. You’ll find them on sunny terraces and with panoramic views of the ocean.
Our certified instructors will show you how to Scuba to our exceptional tutoring programme. If you’re an experienced diver, that’s great. If it’s your first time, we’ll look after you.
Known as a diving paradise, the Caribbean offers underwater adventures not to be missed. Explore gorgeous Jamaican reefs — such as “Shark Reef,” “Coral Garden,” and “Fantasy Reef”— where tunnels and caves beckon with bioluminescent displays and coral formations enchant with their colorful intricacy. During day dives, dolphins, trumpet fish, and sea turtles delight, while nurse sharks and barracuda make a striking impression. The night dives reveal another spectacle — graceful octopi sidle along, moray eels swim in pairs, spotted drum fish and stingrays pass by within inches, while other colorful creatures of the night come out of hiding.
We are pleased to offer our certified guests a deep dive in the morning and a shallow dive in the afternoon. Reef destinations depend on weather and water conditions. On Saturdays, we offer a two-tank dive in the morning. The popular night dives are offered for a charge of $50. Certified PADI divers enjoy a complimentary dive once per day. A second daily dive is subject to availability. We suggest upgrading your certification with our PADI instructors by taking an Advanced Diving Course for an additional charge.
All non-certified divers are invited to participate in a complimentary Resort Course and one introductory dive. Additional non-certified dives are $50 per person. The Resort Course is offered Monday through Friday at 9:00 am. We ask interested guests to sign-up one day in advance. Please note, this is not a PADI certification course.
Please review the medical questionnaire. Complete this form if you have a medical condition that may require a doctor's waiver.

Equipment & Lessons
Supervised by our friendly certified PADI instructors, every dive is customized to give each guest the opportunity to see the range of sea life that makes the Caribbean such a popular diving destination. Group dives include no more than 2 novices under the supervision of at least one PADI instructor. One-on-one instruction is available, especially for higher dive certification levels. All equipment is fitted individually to each guest. Couples Resorts uses a certified nitrox blender, making our blend of oxygen more comfortable and allowing for longer dives. The state-of-the-art dive boats and equipment are continuously monitored and updated, providing an uncompromising standard of safety for divers of every level. Consequently, Couples Swept Away is distinguished as a 5-star PADI Certified National Geographic Dive Center in the Caribbean, while all other Couples Resorts are fully PADI Certified.
Come aboard one of our glass-bottomed boats and enjoy the underwater scenery. And when you jump out, the water’s warm and you’ll quickly get the attention of a variety of tropical fish. They don’t bite. All the kit’s provided: snorkels, flippers, goggles, the lot. Night snorkeling is available at an additional cost of US$35 per person (subject to availability, prices and times can change at anytime).
Hobie Cat Sailing
Get aboard a catamaran and take it out for a sail. If you’ve never done it before, don’t worry. Our instructors will show you how it’s done.
We have a whole fleet of kayaks for you to take to sea and enjoy. The water is calm but these are special self-draining kayaks that keep you dry on the water. There are classes every day if you need them.
With instruction provided for skis, mono-ski or wake board, you have to try this. Skis, boards, life vest and equipment are all provided.
It’s exhilarating and impressive. Not only that, we’ve invested in state-of-the-art fibreglass boards that are perfectly sized for anyone to enjoy them. Everything provided – instruction available every day.
The logical advancement of the pedalo. Pedal your way around the island taking in the sunshine and scenery.
Assemble your own team or check with the Front Desk to see who’s playing and when. You’ll find the court in the North Pool.
Surfing but easier. If you’re a beginner, you can just kneel on the board and paddle along with your hands. But it won’t take long before you want to move up a level: stand on the board and propel yourself with a paddle. Fantastic fun and not as difficult as it looks.
This is like an offshoot of water skiing. Towed by a high-powered speedboat, you’ll blast across the waves… guaranteed to bring a smile to your face.
