The experience at Seafari, Club Med Columbus Isle, made our stay. Shout out to Steffi (instructor) and Nelly (office manager) but particularly to Beth, a brilliant instructor that gave my children an experience so positive that they have discovered an avocation for life. If all Seafari centers are run like this one than I would urge you to access your... More

This is our second time diving with Seafari Bahamas. They are a wonderful Dive operation. I dove with my 13 year old son and his best friend, both intermediate divers. Each site was carefully picked so that there was unlimited visibility, no current and ample marine life possible. Out of the 5 days we dove, not one dive disappointed. Each... More

The boats are great. The dive masters are safety conscious and fun to hang out with in between dives. We dove with Noi, Greg, Jeremy and Hutch. We saw close to twenty sharks during four days of diving. Unfortunately no hammerheads. We saw lots of other sea life from drum fish to turtles. Great diving and a great dive company!

We dove with this operation on a recent trip to the Columbus Isle Club Med. They run a top notch dive center and all of the staff are friendly and informative. They provide lockers for your gear and nitrox is available at a reasonable charge. The dive boats are large and very stable. The divemasters give a thorough briefing before... More

In May 2016 we spent our third vacation at Club Med on San Salvador (before it was in 2000 and 2009), and every time we really liked diving in the transparent, turquoise world made accessible by the dive team of Club Med and now Seafari. Enjoying otherwise all the sports activity and fun provided by the Club, this year we... More

We're glad that you enjoyed the diving with us. We would like to clarify that pre-paid pricing is available on the Club Med website. Yes, our rates have increased over 7 years ago but they have not doubled. Researching you will find that our rates are extremely competitive. They include equipment (mask, fins, BCD, regulator and wetsuit) and 7.5% VAT... More

Very professional operation with knowledgable staff and all good equipment. The boat was immaculate and the captain cleaned while the dive or snorkeling took place. This was my first Club Med experience and I would definitely do it again. The snorkeling is included with your stay, scuba is extra.

We stayed at the Club Med on Columbus Isle (San Salvador) in the Bahamas from March 31 to April 7, 2016. The dedicated scuba diving operation was Seafari, which is an independent company from Club Med, but located on the Club Med resort so it feels as though it is part of Club Med. The dive masters and scuba team,... More

We first visited the Club Med on San Salvador Island over 20 years ago... it was a revelation. As a former SCUBA instructor, I'm always quick to find fault with most resort operations. In 1993, with Jean-Paul as chief of the operation, my wife and I had the best dive vacation of our young marriage. This week, during our sixth... More
