FAMILY SCUBA DIVING

Scuba diving is an environment-friendly, fun and non-competitive activity which is something everyone in the family can do together. Hence, there is no more reasons to stay back, while only some members go out diving.  Consequently family diving holidays are becoming more  common with resorts and dive shops making special promotions and deals to cater to this growing way of vacationing. Even if you are a mixed family with both divers and non-divers, you can spend time with loved ones exploring the fascinating world underwater.

Why go Scuba Diving?

Scuba diving in India has been growing over the years both as a sport and an adventure activity. When compared to other extreme sports or adrenaline boosting activities, scuba diving is relatively safe provided simple safety norms are followed. Aside from the fun quotient, scuba diving has a lot of benefits, physical, psychological and social. Furthermore, scuba diving provides us the opportunity to see more of the 70% of the water world. With more than 50-60 percent of underwater species still undiscovered, being able to observe the visual array of colours and life is truly an incredible experience.

Planet Scuba India took very good care of me

Planet Scuba India took very good care of me. Especially as someone who was coming to India after 3 years, it was very helpful that they guided me in local food, provide great lodging in the resort, and in travel tips. The diving is amazing. Their instructors are highly experienced and trained. They know their dive sites well. The key sign of a good dive agency is the ability to read the weather, the currents and to modify the dive plan to suit both. I was on a boat with for two days and another group for the third day. Both groups were very well equipped in gear, but most of all, were excellent in making good dive plans.

Undersea wonderland, oversea brilliance

Engulfed by the aura of Shiva, the waters off Netrani island are home to a variety of corals, jellyfish, napoleon wrasse, button fish, and many other diaphanous creatures of the deep. The team from Planet Scuba India were the ideal companions to the journey under. The training for the DSD was carefully crafted to not be overwhelming to the casual, first time diver, while a reassuring presence of the instructor was encouraging both above and below the surface of the sea. The DSD is highly recommended, the Open Waters certification even more so, and for the ones passionately inclined towards a life of the sea, the zero to hero program would be the ideal escape from the drudges of having to depend on your legs for support all the time. Under the sea, experience zero gravity, marvel at the colors of flora and fauna, and just breathe. Until the world below takes your breath away.

Recommend Planet Scuba India 100%

I would recommend Planet Scuba India 100%. I called them and expressed my interest in getting PADI certified. They took time and explained me the options. They even took pain in negotiating price with a Seychelles diving center. The PADI instructor was an awesome and didn't give up on me when I myself was not very confident.
Whole procedure went super smooth. I'm thankful to the support staff for being there all the time.

Great experience

I have had a very good experience with them. Especially Madhava. He is a gem. The only problem is, they introduced me to an addictive sport, which has an awesome team, but is damn costly.😁😁😁

Amazing scuba diving trip

I had an amazing scuba diving trip, thanks to Madhav and his team. They were very professional. I couldn’t complete my pool training in one go; but the team was courteous enough to encourage me and helped me complete my pool training on another day. The diving trip to the Maldives was an experience of a lifetime.

Underwater dream comes true

I take this opportunity to thank my instructors for being patient and helping me achieve my dream. It was worth all the effort and money to dive with hundreds of fish. The best part was getting down 60 feet in Netrani! The best suit I've ever own is a wet suit. A big thanks to Planet Scuba India.
