Scuba Diving Club

Diving is a splendid experience. The marine life of these islands contains some of the richest coral reef ecosystems is the world. The specialty is that most of the coral reefs and underwater formations are undamaged by human activity, so we should help preserve it. Many of the islands are surrounded by fringing reefs, often several hundred meters wide and separated from the shore by a lagoon of similar width. The best way to discover them is by Scuba Diving.

There are also steep undulating hills of volcanic lava, which makes for some unusual diving. There are a variety of sharks - hammerhead sharks a little away from the reefs Grey, Whitetip, Nurse and Leopard sharks are found closer inshore. You can also spot huge Manta Rays.

Things to take care while Scuba Diving

Reduce, reuse, recycle - that's the mantra! The fewer waste we generate, the fewer we'll see them lined up on the beaches and near the land. Take only photographs, dont take back coral. If each diver refrains from taking a souvenir from the ocean and the ocean bed, we can preserve the oceans' beauty and keep it for others to see. Keep your hands off, don't touch anything on a dive. Even a slight touch can damage coral. And of course some coral can sting you back. Educate fellow divers and spread the word about coral reef protection and urge them to care for and preserve the environment.

Necessary Equipment for Scuba Diving

Wet suit, fin, tank, mask, snorkel, a knife, a pair of leather or canvas gloves are necessary. Underwater flashlights if you are diving at night, dive tables, and dive watch re useful. In diving sites like Lakshadweep and the Andamans, equipment for scuba diving can be hired at reasonable prices. The diving resorts and schools provide them on rent, if you show them a diving certificate.
