  • Trip introduction

    Stay in the gorgeous islands of Andamans, in tented cabanas not too far from the beach, while you learn the adventure sport of scuba diving at Havelock Island. The PADI Scuba Diver course gives you the basic skills needed to dive deep into the hidden world of coral reefs and tiny fishes. You'll learn the theory of diving, both by video and self-study, and practice your skills in shallow water. By the end of the course, you'll be completed 2 open water dives of 45 minutes each, under the supervision of a certified dive instructor, to earn your PADI Scuba Diver credentials.

    During this 6-day trip in the Andamans, you'll be staying in Swiss-style tented cabanas with attached washrooms, built for people who want to experience Andamans with taste and comfort.

For this course, your dive center is placed on Beach #3 of the Havelock Island, a heaven for scuba divers in the Andaman belt. You'll have plenty of time to get comfortable in the scuba equipment, and you won't be rushed to complete the course if you're not ready.

    Your resort is close to a white, sandy beach that offers hours and hours of sun, sea and sand. You'll stay in spacious tented cabanas, located just a short walk away from the beach. The room comes with a double bed, an attached washroom and a private sit-out with rocking chairs.
