  • Trip introduction

    If you've been diving before and enjoyed it, this is what you should do next. Book yourself into a delightful sea-facing cottage on Havelock Island, and use it as your base while you complete your PADI Scuba Diver course. As a certified Scuba Diver, you can dive anywhere in the world, up to 12 metres (upto 40 feet) under the supervision of a dive master or instructor. And when you're ready, you can easily upgrade to an Open Water diver certification.

    For this certification, you'll go on guided dives in small groups, to some of the most stunning dive spots in the world. The Andamans have gorgeous reefs, teeming with colourful marine life. You'll train in 3 theory modules, as well as 3 sessions of confined water skills, and then do 2 dives in open water, up to 12 metres. This certification can be completed in 2 or 3 days.

    IMPORTANT: This trip requires a minimum of 2 persons for the booking. Single accommodation is not available.

    Destination

    You'll be diving off Havelock Island, which is one of the best spots for scuba diving in the Andamans. The beach has teal-blue waters, soft white sand, and is fringed by lush green forests. Thanks to the clean water, high visibility, and wide diversity of marine life, this is an adventurer's paradise and attracts divers of all skill levels, from around the world.

    You'll be staying on Havelock Island, on a gorgeous white beach, close to the snorkeling and dive sites around Havelock, as well as attractions like the local market and the forest trails after Beach 5. Located on the same property as the dive centre, the seafacing cottage is built in duplex style, with two levels to offer you unmatched views of the garden and the sea.
