    Pondicherry is a popular scuba diving spot in India. The underwater world here is richly diverse, with colourful fish like the lion fish, the angel fish, the parrot fish, as well as sting rays and eels. The scuba diving spots are about 3-15 kms from the harbour, and with average temperatures of about 28 degrees Celsius, and visibility as far as 30 metres on good days, this is a perfect location for a tropical scuba diving experience. You'll sail back just as the sun begins to set, after a day of fun and adventure in the sun.
