"The facility was good. the best part was that there were only two of us. instructors were friendly and extremely helpful. only problem is that you can't be sure of under water visibility in Pondicherry. someday it is clear, sometimes you can't see anything."

This was my first scuba diving experience, and it was just awesome. I have no words to express my happiness here. All credits goes to the instructor Mike and Khushboo and other team members, they very calm composed and teaching all the important things we have to take care during the dive. I had my best experience. I will definitely do this again here.
"Really nice and complete tourist tour of Pondichéry. \n\nWe booked for 2 just the night before! The service is very reactive. The car was comfy and with A/C. The driver was on time and flexible. He shared some knowledge about different places while driving. \n\nWe strongly recommend this tour as its price is definitely worth it. Check the different places that you'll visit to plan and make the most out of this great 8 hours."
Pondicherry is so beautiful and different from other places in India. I went to Pondicherry with my friends and we enjoyed a lot. We went to the church, Aurbindo Ashram and we even did boating in Chunnambar backwaters. Promenade Beach was so beautiful and alluring. We had a great time on the beach. The stays and food included in the package were very nice. Even the driver was so kind and nice.

My first experience went extremely memorable as I am hydrophobic but the guide was polite and he made me believe that you have all the safety equipment and oxygen under the water, finally after some time and a bit of briefing I dive and it was super fantastic. I really enjoyed it and will definitely do this again.
