Scuba diving in Goa is a delightful experience. Welcome to the world of underwater delight in Goa. Attractive corals, colored and beautiful, shells and fishes all invite exploration. Adventurous sports like Scuba Diving help you to unearth the underwater treasure of Goa
Underwater visibility in Goa ranges for five meters to ten meters through out the tourist season. The waters in Goa are safe and temperate. The absence of riptide currents makes the waters ideal for beginners.

PADI Discover Scuba Diving program introduces guests to scuba diving in a highly supervised and relaxed manner. It dispels common misconceptions about scuba by letting individuals try it for themselves. Under the guidance of a PADI professional, new divers learn basic safety concepts, put on equipment and swim around underwater in a closely supervised environment – almost handhold.
