  • Trip introduction

    This PADI Discover Scuba Dive at Niel Island takes you to a dive spot in the Andaman Sea for one open water dive. But you'll begin the day with a short 30-min training session in the shallow water to learn the various skills of scuba diving. When you'lre confident, you'll hop into a boat, travel to a dive spot in the Andaman Sea and jump in for a peaceful dive in the open sea. Since you'll be accompanied by a certified dive instructor at all times, you don't even need to know swimming to book this dive. After 40-45 mins of exploring the rich and varied marine life, the bright and vast corals of the dive spot, you'll surface and return to Niel Island.

    After your 40 feet open water dive, you'll receive a Discover Scuba Dive certificate, which enables you to carry forward these skills if you decide to do a scuba course.

    Destination

    This PADI Discover Scuba Dive trip takes place at a dive centre on the Neil Island. Away from the crowd of tourists at the popular Havelock Island, you'll train with a certified dive instructor and explore the lesser known dive spots of the Andamans near the Neil Island. The island, covered by forest cover with tropical beaches at the coast, present the perfect backdrop for a scuba adventure. The dive spots around the island, populated by brightly-coloured reef fish, offer clear visibility with a pleasant water temperature.
