As Indians we have a tendency to stereotype our own country for certain things. One of those things is Scuba Diving. Having been guilty for having an extremely pessimistic point of view before I dived in Andaman I can say without any reasonable doubt that...More

Hi there, you need to know how to swim to certify as a SCUBA diver. However, a discover SCUBA dive (which is a hand held, closely supervised dive by an instructor) is possible. This costs INR 4,500 + 18% GST

Depends on how much time you have. Chidiyatapu is closer to Port Blair and also less crowded. Havelock has more schools and people. But both of them are good.
