A course for beginners who would like to get into water to explore the underwater world. Dive until you wish to is the theme of this diving. We know what a person expect during his first dive and we make best efforts to make it memorable. Andaman Island is among the best rated attraction for Scuba Diving in India; and amongst the many spots available, Havelock Island is one of the best. So, wherever you are, book your ferry to Havelock, to enjoy this once-in-a-lifetime experience! Havelock Island offers clear and warm water with one of the largest variety of coral and fish life anywhere on the planet. NO SWIMMING SKILLS are required for this dive.
We follow the Professional Association of Diving Instructors (PADI) general standards and recommendations. Trained professional divers assist you during the dive.
This is the perfect program if you want to experience scuba diving in a controlled, safe environment. Swimming skills are NOT required for this program. This is not a training course, but meant to give you a taste of diving (and hopefully, get you hooked to the sport!). We leave at 7:30 from our dive center by boat to a nice sheltered reef. You get a briefing on what to do and what to expect during the day; then you spend some time doing shallow water skills and getting comfortable with the gear. After that, we go for a dive. A dive professional is in the water with you at all times, and will handle your safety. We are back between 11:30 – 1, typically. Maximum depth of the program is 12m – how deep we go will depend upon your comfort level in the water and the instructor’s discretion (we want you to have fun, but safety obviously comes first!)
The dive duration depends on you, your air consumption and comfort level. Typically, it lasts 45 min or longer, but some people are able to extend it to an hour. From our side, there is no limit.Please note that there are many ways to conduct this program – as with everything else, we do not take the dive-factory approach with this program. We conduct the program at a nice and leisurely pace; you are not hurried and if you need extra time to get comfy, you will get extra time to get comfy. Also, our programs are conducted by fully trained dive professionals – something that sounds very obvious, but regrettably, isn’t always the case. We also take pictures of you underwater – we can burn this on a CD if you want, but if you bring a memory card or pen drive, that is generally better and more reliable.
The trip is subject to weather conditions.
Full refund, if the weather conditions are bad and the dive does not takes place.
We suggest you to carry pen drive/dongle to take your video after the dive ends. We usually provide CD, however we have faced circumstances where the CD is corrupt after the customers gets back home.
