  • Trip introduction

    Level up in scuba diving with the SSI Advance Adventurer course, a 2-day diving experience designed to teach in-depth and niche skills to certified scuba divers. With five open water dives, you'll upgrade your skills by swimming down to a maximum depth of 100 feet. During these dives, you'll work with a professional dive instructor, learning essential skills taught during the deep dive to highly specialized skills taught during the fish identification dive. After the course, you'll walk out of the dive centre with the SSI Advance Adventurer certification.

    Destination

    Scuba diving in India is undoubtedly the best in the coral rich dive sites of the Andaman Sea. For certified scuba divers who are upgrading their skills in the adventure sport, the Andaman Sea offers dive sites like the Dixon's Pinnacle, Johnny's Gorge and the Jackson's Bar. With three pinnacles darting up, the dive site of Dixon's Pinnacle offers inspiring views of tube corals and barrel sponges. At Johnny's Gorge, a rocky outcrop is home to species of pelagic fish swimming in the boulders. Jackson's Bar often sees strong water currents but divers here get to swim with white-tip reef sharks and eagle rays.
