Sourabh Shah
for PADI Open Water Scuba Diver Course at Pondicherry, India

The course was conducted in a very professional way. It was entirely different than the fun scuba dive; they focused on the skill sets required to dive independently. The theory sessions were good too and you have to clear the exams to get the certification (75% pass grade). Pool sessions are sort of practice sessions for different activities you perform in the ocean. The instructors were very knowledgeable and always told us about best practices before the dive, during the dive and after the dive. I checked PADI's website, and this course was conducted exactly as prescribed by PADI. Half of the fee has to be paid in advance to book the slot for diving. Once you are enrolled, you get discounts on other courses and scuba equipment (10%). The dive center is very well managed, and there is always someone to take care of the customers. Long weekends are especially crowded, but if the slot is booked in advance, you are set. And yes, they serve free breakfast (and tea/coffee)!

for PADI Open Water Scuba Diver Course at Pondicherry, India

I completed my Open Water Course in Pondicherry. <a href="https://geekytraveler.com/scuba-diving-in-pondicherry/">Scuba diving in Pondicherry</a> is amazing. The best time to dive would be the month of October or Mid-June as the visibility that time is around 18-20 meters.
