What is the best way to scuba dive?
Scuba diving is the act of being underwater while wearing an underwater breathing apparatus. It feels more like you are entering another world. You almost “fly” through the water, while floating effortlessly.
Who can go underwater diving?
Because we all live on a planet that has oceans, we have easy access to open water. Scuba diving follows the natural order of events. Scuba diving is a safe sport that allows divers of all abilities and physical characteristics to safely and successfully dive, even though it might seem complicated and not for everyone.
Divers of all abilities can choose from three types of diving offered by the Andaman Scuba Diving Course:

Night dives are possible at depths of up to 30 meters.

Some dive shops also offer a “Scuba Diver Course“, which is an advanced level below the Open Water Diver. Only you and your instructor can dive deeper than 12 meters. Your travel must be planned in accordance with the different lengths of each course.
