Diving in India

If it's diving you're looking for, there are three main centers of diving in India:
.   Andaman and Nicobar group of islands in the Bay of Bengal
.   Lakshadweep group of islands in the Arabian sea
.   Goa on the mainland

Every destination is completely unique in its own way, and they all have widely different dive conditions and marine life.

While Lakshadweep has the clear blue lagoons of coral atolls, Andaman and Nicobar are volcanic islands surrounded by deep, undisturbed waters that have an astounding bio-diversity. The third destination Goa, has many exciting things to do, on land as well as in water.

Your adventure will begin long before your diving ever does. In fact it will begin the moment you step into the country. World class diving often lies in out of the world places. Getting there may not always be fun. Travel routes that run across valleys and plains, through breathtaking landscapes, and at the end of it all, the experience of diving in sites so pristine and untouched - of which you could probably be a pioneer in one of the last remaining diving frontiers - India.
