Port Blair is connected by air to most major Indian metros.
This is one of the world’s most popular introduction to diving courses. For those of you who want to give scuba a try, but are unsure about committing to a full certification course just yet, sign up for a DSD.
This trip includes a brief orientation to the equipment, learning basic skills in shallow water, followed by a closely supervised dive over the beautiful coral reef.
DSD skills earned during this trip may be credited towards the PADI Scuba Diver and Open Water Course.
Chidiya Tapu is south of Port Blair, a magnificent location that has a lush and pristine heritage of natural wonders. This beautifully secluded spot is an escape from the regular crowd of visitors at Havelock islands, giving Lacadives the luxury of rarely encountering other dive boats on the reef. Guests are given a highly personalized experience, where instead of a multitude of divers crowding the boat, we focus on each diver’s individual comfort and minimize our footprint on the reefs.
Explore some spectacular dive sites like Mundapahar beach, Parrot's rock, Cinque, and Suar Mundi. The outer edges of the Mahatma Gandhi Marine National Park and the islands of Rutland and Cinque have a number of potential dive sites yet to be explored.
