How is it different from Shore Dive? 
 In Boat Dive, we take you by boat to a secluded reef, away from the crowds, and conduct this program one-on-one, in order to let you get the most thorough scuba experience possible. We try for a minimum of 45 min of water time, although that will depend a little on your air consumption.
What to wear? 
At the dive centre, you would be provided with a wetsuit. Under that, it is advised to wear shorts or basic swimsuit. If you want to wear a T-shirt, go for a polyester/synthetic one. Pair it with leggings or cycle shorts. You can dress modestly and still enjoy diving. 
Wear flip-flops or dive shoes. It is advisable not to wear sports shoes, heels or boots. 
Do you need to know swimming to do scuba diving? 
You can do scuba diving, even if you do not know swimming. You are always accompanied by experienced instructors and dive masters who are there to assist you even if you do not know swimming. 
Is scuba diving safe for me? 
Thousands of people do scuba diving in Andamans, daily. It is absolutely safe provided you have basic fitness. We work with reputed & well-established dive centres. All Instructors and dive masters are equipped with internationally recognized certifications and are trained in dive supervision, diver rescue and Emergency First Response (EFR).
Things to note: 
On the day of scuba diving do not keep your itinerary busy or add another adventurous activity. Scuba diving is a fun activity but it also tires your body. If you want a relaxed holiday, indulge in scuba diving and then do some relaxed sightseeing for the rest of the day. 

Duration of dive:
While the whole activity lasts from 2.5-4 hours, underwater time lasts for about 45 min, although it depends a little on your air consumptions.
