Where to find us

Dive Bermuda has two locations. One at the Fairmont Southampton Resort and one at Grotto Bay Resort near St. George’s.

The dive center is located on the private beach of the Fairmont Southampton Resort and can be accessed from the main lobby via shuttle bus or a taxi can drop you down at the beach. Please note that taxis do not collect from the beach so you must return to the main lobby or to the nearby Horseshoe Bay public taxi pickup.

Our Story

Dive Bermuda was founded in 1981 as Nautilus Diving in the same spot here on the beach at the Fairmont Southampton Resort, we even still have the same phone number. Making the most of Bermuda's world class diving and the boom in recreational scuba diving, Nautilus quickly garnered a reputation as a fun, safe and pioneering dive centre.

In the 1990's we changed owners and our name to the now familiar Dive Bermuda. In 1994 we joined PADI and have been a member for over 20 years now, training 1000's of divers from beginner all the way to instructor.

In 2011 we changed hands yet again with local lawyer Mark Diel taking the reigns. Mark worked at Dive Bermuda as a young man and has been associated with the company in one way or another ever since.

Come dive with us and experience for yourself everything Dive Bermuda has to offer!

I can’t express the gratitude I have or thank everyone at Dive Bermuda enough for making my dreams become a reality. I was welcomed by extremely friendly, enthusiastic, and very knowledgeable staff when I first arrived at Dive Bermuda. I expressed to them that I’ve always wanted to dive, but was a little nervous of various marine life. Will is incredible. I am extremely grateful to him for being so understanding and patient, which allowed me to fall in love with diving. You guys are awesome!

I would highly recommend Dive Bermuda... you won’t be disappointed!
