If you enjoy snorkelling and are fascinated by the sea, you'll be thrilled by the Scuba Diver course. It gives you the freedom and mobility you need to experience the magic of the underwater world. All your training takes place in the idyllic surroundings and tropical waters of the Andaman Islands. In this 2-day certification course, participants complete 3 theory modules, 1 day of shallow water skills training and 2 open water dives up to 12 meters, to receive a permanent licence that allows you to dive to 12 meters or 40 feet under the supervision of a dive master or instructor. Divers are given a highly personalized experience, where instead of a multitude of divers crowding the boat, the focus is on each diver's individual comfort. Because it is only for two days, this is a great option for those with limited time or as part of a vacation.
NOTE: You should know how to swim if you want to do this course. While you don't have to be a great swimmer, you will be required to swim 200 metres (at your own pace) in open water, and float for 10 minutes.
The Andaman Islands offer some of the best dive sites in the world, and are right here in your backyard! You'll be diving at Chidiya Tapu, a small fishing village which is just 2 hours drive from Port Blair. From here, you'll be able to explore dive sites like Cinque Island and Passage Island.
