  • Trip introduction

    If you're not a diver, but you're curious about the underwater world, this Discover Scuba Diving (DSD) trip in the Andamans is perfect for you. You'll get a briefing about the equipment and basic techniques, followed by a practice session in shallow waters. This gives you time to get used to being underwater. After that, you'll head out from the shore itself to explore wonderful coral reefs and swim along the fish.

    For Discover Scuba Dives, your dive will be about 45 mins long, and you can go to a maximum depth of 12 metres or 40 feet.

    NOTE: There is no boat ride for this version of the Discover Scuba Dive in the Andamans. You'll be trained on Beach 2 and will wade into the water for your dive.
