  • Trip introduction

    If you've been diving before and enjoyed it, this is what you should do next. As a PADI-certified Scuba Diver, you can dive anywhere in the world, up to 12 metres (upto 40 feet) under the supervision of a dive master or instructor. And when you're ready, you can easily upgrade to an Open Water diver certification.

    For this certification, you'll go on guided dives in small groups, to some of the most stunning dive spots in the world. The Andamans have gorgeous reefs, teeming with colourful marine life. You'll train in 3 theory modules, as well as 3 sessions of confined water skills, and then do 2 dives in open water, up to 12 metres. This certification can be completed in 2 or 3 days. IMPORTANT: You'll need to pass a 10 minute floating test for your certification.

    Destination

    You'll be diving off Havelock Island, which is one of the best spots for scuba diving in the Andamans. The beach has teal-blue waters, soft white sand, and is fringed by lush green forests. Thanks to the clean water, high visibility, and wide diversity of marine life, this is an adventurer's paradise and attracts divers of all skill levels, from around the world. Newer and deeper sites are being discovered, and some of these locations are highly recommended, with most offering a great topography and fish life.

    Destination highlights

    • Earn your PADI Scuba Diver certificate.
    • Go scuba diving in the azure waters of the Andamans.
    • Dive to a depth of 12 meters to see the stunning corals and fish.
    • Learn diving with expert dive instructors in small groups.
