  • Trip introduction

    If you’ve never tried your hand at scuba diving, then this try dive in the Andamans is the perfect first step for you! You’ll start off with a short training session, covering the basic skills of breathing, navigating and other skills required while diving. A certified dive instructor will train you with personalized attention all through the trip. Soon, you'll wade into a nearby dive site from the shore for a fun 25-30 mins dive to explore the rich corals and tiny fishes of the Andaman Sea. And within a few hours, you'll have completed your first open water dive, without having any prior experience of diving or even swimming.

    Destination

    The best diving destination in India, especially for your first dive, is the island of Havelock, a renowned hotspot for water sports from snorkelling to scuba diving. Amateur divers who are taking their first steps in the adventure sport usually dive at the Nemo Reef, a large dive site located close to the shore. Nemo Reef is often called the classroom reef since many beginners get their first underwater experience here. With low water currents, relatively clear visibility and pleasant water temperature, Nemo Reef is a great dive site for travellers on a strict budget, without any prior scuba experience.
