  • Trip introduction

    Stay in the gorgeous islands of Andamans for five nights and six days while you learn scuba diving in Havelock. This Open Water Diver certification course teaches you the skills and techniques required to go scuba diving to a maximum depth of 18 metres or 60 feet. On this course, you'll explore the blue ocean while scuba diving in Havelock Island. You'll train in 5 theory modules, confined water skills, and finally, the highlight of your certification, 4 open water dives.

    During this 5 night/6 day stay, you'll be staying in a comfortable hut-style accommodation with attached washroom, equipped with a large bed with mosquito net, a fan, and plenty of storage space.

    NOTE: You should know how to swim if you want to do this course. While you don't have to be a great swimmer, you will be required to swim 200 metres (at your own pace) in open water, and float for 10 minutes.

    Destination

    Scuba diving in Havelock Island is one of the most sought-after destinations in the Andamans. The divecenter is situated on Beach no. 3, Havelock Islands, and offers access to coral reef formations teeming with marine life. If you're lucky, while you're scuba diving in Havelock, you'll meet some fascinating large marine life too, like dugongs, mantas and the harmless whale shark.

    Your resort is located right on the white sands of the beach, and your hut is in the midst of a coconut grove, just a few steps from the beach.
