LATEST UPDATE: Started operations in Neil!

Scuba Diving in the Andaman Islands – and across India

DIVEIndia is India’s largest dive center, with operations in the Andamans (where we are the oldest dive center and the pioneers of diving in the region, having discovered virtually all the top dive sites of Havelock and Neil) as well as with training centers in Delhi, Mumbai and Bangalore.

What the Andamans do have to offer is clear, warm water with very high marine biodiversity, making it a very attractive dive destination. And that is where DIVEIndia and its team of experienced dive professionals come in. From our scuba dive centers in Havelock & Neil, we offer daily scuba diving activities to the best scuba diving sites of the Andamans (India).  And as a PADI 5-Star Dive Center, we offer a full array of PADI scuba certification courses, from beginner to instructor as well.

But as the saying goes – there is more! We also offer pool training & refresher courses  through our mainland operations @Home in Delhi, Mumbai and Bangalore.   And our travel wing, DIVEIndia Outbound, offers carefully curated dive trips to some of the leading dive destinations across the world.   Want gear?   As authorized Aqualung and Mares dealers, we sell scuba gear at globally competitive prices.

In short, if you are in India and interested in diving – we got you covered.

Diving for the first time?

We have a broad array of programs for people who are new to scuba, ranging from the half day “Intro to Scuba” program for those who want a taste of the underwater world, to a 4-day Open Water course, for those who want the full experience. We are India’s leading scuba training center, and take great pride in offering very high-quality training, that goes well above the bare minimum stipulated in the standards – this is what we love to do!

Certified Already? Improve your skills or just get some dives in!

For the certified diver, we offer a broad array of continuing education courses, ranging from value-packed Specialty programs and combos in areas like Deep Diving, Wreck Diving, Buoyancy, etc.

Or you could just choose to go diving and explore the amazing biodiversity and enormous schools of fish that characterize the Andamans.

Oldest Instructor Training Center

We are India’s first instructor training facility (since 2008) and now are a PADI 5-Star center, offering very thorough PADI Divemaster and and PADI Instructor training programs.

Focus on conservation

We pride ourselves in our conservation efforts – ranging from reducing our power demands, recycling water, conducting reef surveys and training the staff of the Zoology & Forest Departments

Multiple Locations

We are the only dive center offering diving in multiple locations – Havelock and Neil in the Andamans, training centers in Delhi, Mumbai and Bangalore and Outbound trips outside the country. So no matter what your interests, experience of preferences, we’ve got you covered.

Leaders in Dive Discovery

We have found virtually all the top dive sites of Havelock and Neil Island that you will dive, and even now, continue to discover new sites each year. No one in the world has more dives in the Andamans than us.

Your staff was courteous and patient with first timers like us. My wife is a non swimmer and she could dive too. The world beneath the water is every bit as surreal as the world above it - we both had a great time!

Rajeev, Bangalore, India

A big big thank you for a wonderful stay & an experience of lifetime. It was wonderful being a part of your world. Each one of us had a brilliant time throughout our trip. The entire staff & the team is a group of such positive individuals which makes the stay & diving all the more fun. On behalf of all of us, I would like to say a big thank you for everything & we will definitely be coming back to meet you & the lovely Frodo,Sam & Buffy 🙂

Shikha, New Delhi, India

Couldn’t have asked for a more kickass experience in the Andamans. You guys at DIVEIndia have been stellar. Thanks for helping me check off all the species i wanted to see - I reckon the mimic octopus and the ambon scorpionfish were the best of the lot! Gonna miss both the diving and the post-diving shenanigans!

Chris, Australia

We just received our diving certifications and wanted to express a heartfelt thanks to Dive India for
making this such a memorable and exciting experience for us. We are already planning our next trip (in October most likely) and can't wait to dive again 🙂
