Welcome to DIVEIndia, a PADI Dive Center, SSI Platinum Instructor Training Facility and NAUI Pro Gold Diver Training Facility based in the Andaman Islands, India.
News Flash: WE ARE NOW OFFERING SCUBA DIVING ON NEIL ISLAND, ANDAMANS (finally!!). Please click on the "Diving in Neil" link above for more info!
From our scuba dive shops in Havelock & Neil, we offer daily scuba diving activities to the most number of scuba diving sites in the Andamans (India), including day trips to Barren Island & Invisible Banks as well as all NAUI, PADI & SSI scuba certification courses (all the way from Open Water, the basic learn to dive course, up to Instructor - the broadest array of scuba training courses in Asia).
Located in the Bay of Bengal about 900km from India, the Andaman & Nicobar Islands are one of the few undiscovered gems that have escaped the clutches of mass tourism. There are no concrete-and-glass resorts offering all-inclusive deals, no nightclubs / discotheques, no shopping malls and no fancy restaurants. There aren't even any street salesmen offering to sell you trinkets at “a special price, my friend - just for you.”
What the Andamans do have to offer is clear, warm water with one of the largest variety of coral and fish life anywhere on the planet. And that is where DIVEIndia and its team of experienced dive professionals come in.
- The first PADI Dive Centre in the Andamans
- The first SSI Dive Centre in India
- The first NAUI Dive Centre in India
- The first and only full-time Instructor Training Facility in India (with 2 instructor trainers on staff, for 2 different agencies)
- Leaders in local dive discovery (we have found all the top dive sites of Havelock that you dive, and even now, continue to discover new sites each year)
- First dive center to offer regular day trips to Barren Island, Invisible Banks and more
- First dive center to start offering dive safaris to the North Andamans
With our latest training materials, large team of dedicated & experienced dive professionals (no one on this planet has more dives in the Andamans than us!), emphasis on small groups and personalized attention, we ensure that you get all the benefits of diving with a professional outfit, and yet retain the personalized service of a small operator.
The Andamans are a magical place. Life moves more slowly here, untouched by commercialism and modern intrusions. Unwind after a day's diving by relaxing on a hammock or sunning yourself on the beach. Spend the evenings dining on the “catch du jour” around a bonfire (ignore the cat if she comes by and wants some food – she's been hanging out with the dogs and has learned bad habits from them!).
Come share the magic of the Andamans with us!
