  • Trip introduction

    The Discover Scuba Diving course is a trial run for those who would like to be certified in scuba diving, but are not sure yet. In these sessions, you will learn basic safety guidelines and skills, and will dive with an experienced instructor.

    Your diving sessions combine one theory session, one session in a swimming pool to get comfortable with your equipment, and finally, one open water dive, where you'll head out into the sea to try out your newly acquired skills. It’s extremely safe and a lot of fun.

    IMPORTANT: This is not a fixed departure trip. It requires a minimum of 2 persons for a booking confirmation.


    Pondicherry is one of the best mainland diving destinations in India. There are gorgeous untouched reefs, a stunning range of fish like lion fish, grouper, kingfish, moray eels, eagle and manta rays, parrot fish, sea snakes, triggerfish, banner fish, crustaceans and even sharks, whale sharks, turtles and dolphins! There are more than 20 dive sites ranging from 10 metres to 40 metres depth, and visibility up to 40 metres. The water temperature is a comfortable 28 degrees, and there's plenty to do when you're not in the water too.

    Destination highlights

    • Dive in the azure waters of Pondicherry
    • Try your hand at diving in open waters
    • Go as deep as 12 meters
    • Swim among a great range of corals and fish

  • Day 1: Training Session

    Participants undergo a theory session followed by a training session in the swimming pool. This session enables you to get comfortable with your gear in a controlled environment, and without the distraction of fish and corals. Once you're comfortable and confident, you'll be ready for your open water dive.

    Day 2: Deep Sea Dive

    Everything that you learned yesterday will be put into practice today. Your boat departs at 07:00 a.m, so make sure you've eaten a normal breakfast and are ready on time. You'll be taken out to a dive site for your dive. Your instructor accompanies you at every step of the way, and you'll be comfortable now. There is an abundance of corals and reefs for you to explore, as well as all sorts of fish and marine life. One dive session won't be enough for you! After you're done, you'll be brought back, where you can return your gear and discuss your trip. Trip ends here.
