  • Trip introduction

    Once you’ve had a small taste of scuba diving, it’s easy to fall in love with the sport. The PADI Scuba Diver Course takes you one step further by teaching you the basics of scuba. You’ll learn how to use a mask, snorkel, regulator, fins, buoyancy control device and more.

    In this 2-day certification course, participants complete 3 theory modules, 1 day of shallow water skills training and 2 open water dives up to 12 meters, to receive a permanent license that allows them to dive to 12 meters under the supervision of a dive master or instructor.

    The PADI Scuba Diver certification is valid worldwide.

    Destination

    Explore some of the most stunning locations in the Andamans, located at Chidiya Tapu, which is south of Port Blair. Some of the dive sites include 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.

    Divers are given a highly personalized experience, where instead of a multitude of divers crowding the boat, the focus is on each diver’s individual comfort.
