Netrani or pigeon island as it is called, is one of the most amazing places to scuba dive as it has the greatest and highest visibility. Boat ride to island was amazing as water was splashing at our faces. There were lot of colourful fishes and other marine creatures. The complete experience was awesome.

This was my first scuba diving experience and instructors gave us proper training. First they us pool diving sessions to understand the do's and don't of diving. Diving spot was very beautiful with crystal clear water. We reached Netraini island by boat from Murdeshwar beach. The experience of seeing marine life was amazing. Although no luck of seeing Dolphins whine on a boat ride. Overall it was nice experience and our instructors were also very helpful. Thanks for the amazing trip.

I always wanted to scuba dive and this place is perfect for a weekend trip from Bangalore. I went on this trip during a long weekend with 2 other friends. The whole journey was memorable and when we reached instructors gave us the briefing and after that scuba lessons in swimming pool. We had lot of doubts and our instructors were helpful in clearing all doubts. The scuba diving location is really amazing. I had never seen clear water like this before. We can see the different colour of fishes under the water. We were bit nervous before entering into the sea as it was our first experience but our instructors were always with us and they made sure that we are comfortable. We explored underwater marine life for the first time and that feeling can't be describe in words. It reminded me of bollywood movie where three friends went for the scuba. The whole experience was amazing.

I went to Netrani Island for my first Scuba Dive. Its at about one hour inside ocean from Murudeshwara. The aquatic life is very serene and untouched. Was lucky to see varying creatures down there. Netrani Island is way better than Goa because of less commercialization.

One of the best experience of my life. Scuba diving was on my wishlist and finally did it. I am a non-swimmer so I was bid concern about the safety but instructors were always with me during the dive. I also did some sightseeing in the town and was surprised to see the very big Shiva statue on the Murdeshwar beach.
