1) Coral reef diving and snorkelling

If diving into the cerulean depths of the ocean and discovering the mesmerising beauty of coral reefs and vibrant marine life sounds like the magical underwater experience of your dreams, then you’re in luck. Coral reefs are some of the most diverse ecosystems on Earth, and they are home to a wide variety of marine life, including colourful fish, turtles, and sharks. Club Med offers fantastic locations and an array of scuba diving and snorkelling packages for enthusiasts, including Club Med Kani, Club Med Phuket, Club Med Finolhu Villas, Club Med Seychelles, Club Med Cancún, and Club Med La Caravelle. Don’t have any experience diving? Fret not, because these locations cater to all levels of experience, and diving courses are also available. Do note that at certain destinations, these diving and snorkelling packages may come at an extra cost.

2) Turtle watching

Observe the fascinating nesting and hatching rituals of sea turtles at Club Med Cherating, gaze upon the unforgettable sight of turtles coming up to feed at Club Med Finolhu Villas, or even take part in the magic by releasing baby turtles at Club Med Ixtapa Pacific. Whichever you choose, it’s sure to be an exciting experience getting up close and personal with these shy creatures. Turtle watching is not only a heartwarming experience but also an opportunity to contribute to turtle conservation efforts, as Club Med places great emphasis on responsible and sustainable tourism practices.

Embark on an enchanting journey to observe playful dolphins in their natural habitat at Club Med's locations such as La Plantation d'Albion Club Med, La Pointe aux Canonniers or the Club Med Albion Villas in Mauritius or Club Med Da Balaia in Portugal. Witness their graceful acrobatics and curious interactions with each other, leaving you in awe of their intelligence and charm. Our dolphin watching excursions adhere to responsible wildlife viewing guidelines to ensure minimal disruption to these magnificent creatures and their environment, so you can rest assured that you’ll be in no way disturbing these curious creatures as they frolic about their natural habitat. Just don’t forget to be respectful of the dolphins’ natural behaviour and avoid touching or feeding them while on your dolphin watching tour!

If breathtaking encounters of the gigantic kind are more your cup of tea, venture to Club Med Michès Playa Esmeralda, Club Med Punta Cana, or Club Med Quebec Charlevoix for unforgettable whale watching experiences instead. Depending on the season and location, you may witness the majestic sight of whales emerging from the waves from the safety of a boat.
