Frequently Asked Questions

Scuba diving is absolutely safe as long as the diver follows the guidelines set by PADI/SSI, uses proper gear and dives within his skill level. Statistically speaking, recreational scuba diving is safe as swimming and way safer than driving a car or motorbike or running a marathon! Perhaps the biggest danger of Scuba diving is that its highly addictive. Those who taste Scuba diving in Discover scuba diving programs come back for diving courses and post certification and keep looking for scuba diving trips in all their vacations post that!

For Scuba diving, the best season for Havelock is Decemeber to May. These months have the best visibility and no rainfall. However the Island is usually crowded from December to Mid-Jan. During September, October and November, visibility is great for Scuba diving and the crowds are less but there is a chance of occasional rainfall in the islands. Though in most cases normal rainfall doesn't stop the diving in these months but its better to check the forecasts before your plan and talk to operators.

No, you don't need to know swimming - If you want to just experience scuba diving (typically Discover Scuba Diving experience offered by all Dive centers) either at a pool or even in open water(sea). Yes, you need to know swimming - If you want to take up scuba diving courses like PADI (OWD) Open water Diving or PADI (SD) Scuba Diver or any other PADI/SSI course. These courses require that you be able to swim for 200 meters on your own and float for 10 minutes. Even though you don't swim underwater in Scuba diving and propel yourself using fins, knowing swimming boosts your confidence underwater and helps in your and your teams overall diving experience. So its suggested you learn swimming before you take up these courses. Many non-swimmers from Bangalore and other cities who experience discover scuba program in their holidays typically learn swimming at a pool after their holiday and then come back and enroll for OWD course! learning swimming is totally worth the effort for being able to do OWD later.

Sharks are some of the most beautiful and majestic creatures of the sea and most divers would be extremely happy if they can spot a shark in their dive! Rest assured the chances of sharks attacking scuba divers is next to nothing! Firstly, sighting a shark off the coast of India is very rare. Secondly, sharks in this part of the world are not aggressive (tropical water sharks are not aggressive compared to sharks found in temperate waters) and thirdly even the 'aggressive' sharks have very low propensity to attack divers. We are not part of their food chain and they only attack occasionally if you feed them mistaking you for their food or disturb them etc. There is higher chance of being attacked by a dog on your way back home then being attacked by a shark in your dive!
