This is a paragraph with little content.

  • Trip introduction

    This 7 day scuba diving package in the Andamans combines transfers from the airport, the ferry ride to and from Havelock Island, your entire SSI Open Water Diver course, and your stay on Havelock Island.

    This Open Water scuba diving certification course teaches you the skills and techniques required to dive to a maximum depth of 18 metres or 60 feet. The SSI course combines self-study, shallow water training, and 4 dives in open water, under the guidance of an instructor.

    You'll be staying in tented cabanas, a short walk from the beach, in the midst of a coconut grove. Your cabana is simple, clean, and non air-conditioned, with an attached washroom, and a balcony with chairs.
