During his stay, guests at the resort will have the rare opportunity to dive with Jean-Michel and explore the ocean through the eyes of one of the world's most renowned environmental heroes.
In addition to diving, guests can watch an exclusive short preview of “Jean-Michel Cousteau's Secret Ocean” film. Jean-Michel will provide commentary to the film which will be shown in Main Bure of the resort.
“I grew up along the shore of the Mediterranean Sea in the south of France and began scuba diving at the age of seven. My father, Jacques Cousteau, his team and I produced many documentary films presenting the beauty and wonder of the ocean to the public,” said Jean-Michel. “During my seventy years of diving, I have seen beautiful places of the world. But I have also seen the destruction of our planet. There is only one water system, and together we live on one water planet. Our lives are undeniably linked, and our futures critically connected.”
There is no better place to learn SCUBA than the spectacular Jean-Michel Cousteau Resort in Fiji. It was Jean-Michel's legendary father, Jacques-Yves Cousteau, who pioneered SCUBA gear during World War II when he co-created the Aqua-Lung, a twin-hose underwater breathing apparatus, with which he and his crew were able to explore and film parts of the ocean depths that had never been seen before.
With the unique advantage of Jean-Michel's expertise, Jean-Michel Cousteau Resort is recognized for providing the best dive sites Fiji has to offer. From sites just 10 minutes away to the world-class Namena reefs, the resort offers a variety of dives for novices and experts alike. The dive center at the resort offers the most cutting edge equipment and the most experienced staff on the island. Jean-Michel Cousteau Resort uniquely combines unparalleled dive capabilities and an expert staff with luxurious accommodations and amenities not typically found at dive resorts.
What's more, guests can easily become certified to dive in as little as three days. An introduction begins with an instructor-led 30-minute lesson in the swimming pool. A resort course follows this, beginning with video instruction, in-pool instruction and then a shallow dive (up to 18 meters).
