One of the best experiences. Scuba and snorkeling at this rate in Pondicherry is a never should be missed package. Scuba is more adventurous and thrilling than snorkeling. You will dive deep into the unseen parts of the ocean. It is a great moment anyone dream to have in their life. I have been waiting to do such a tremendous adventure for a long time. Thank you Thrillophilia for offering such a good package. The instructor who gave us a guidance class in the beginning was very informative. He helped us throughout. Go ahead and book this package without doubt. Thank you guys.

A once in lifetime experience and as our dive instructor said “after the first dive, you can’t stop yourself for the second and there is no stopping”. For the first timers, the thought of diving in the endless ocean and so many random thoughts might make few people little nervous as our group was too but trust me the highly trained professional divers will be around you all the time. The entire team was fantastic and I highly recommend them.

Professional instructors with good quality safety equipments. Brief pool lessons were also given to us before the start of the activity. The food provided was delicious and local. Couldn’t have asked for a better holiday experience with my girls. Pretty good price for it too. Thank you Thrillophilia. Will keep coming back for more such holidays.
