    This scuba adventure in Goa combines a stay at a dive resort in Candolim, with a Try Dive at Grande Island. It's the perfect way to see if you have an aptitude for diving or if you'll be comfortable underwater. And where better to learn than in sunny Goa, where the water is warm, the underwater world is friendly, and there's always a beer waiting for you at the end of the day!

    You'll do a short training session of about 45 minutes at a pool at Candolim, after which you head out on a boat to Grande Island. The ride out is fun, and you might even spot dolphins alongside your boat. At Grande Island, you'll kit up and do your first Try Dive in Goa. You'll be diving to a maximum depth of 40 feet, in a 30-40 minute dive.

    This Try Dive can be attempted by both swimmers and non-swimmers, but you should comfortable in the water.
