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.

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.

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.
