I cycled my way down to the Scuba school and reached there by 12 noon. When I reached the school, I met the scuba team who had just returned from a morning dive. I saw them unloading the scuba gears from the vehicle back into the big tubs for cleaning purposes. I went inside and was greeted by one of the... More

One of the good diving experience with temple adventures. I went along with two of my cousin brothers. Due to over night rain , the sea was very rough. The guys at temple adventures handled extremely well. The staff are very friendly, nice setup and equipments. Overall a good experience.

When there was a problem with the payment portal, they rectified it within 15 minutes. Office space: The office is close to railway station and Indira Gandhi Stadium. It was bustling in the morning... More

The time spent... More

Came to Pondy specifically for some diving, initially booked four dives but had to call off final two due to possibility of adverse weather conditions (guys said it was too dangerous to take boat to deep dive sites) their attitude could not have been more professional and helpful. Went out of their way to organise a refund for me. So... More

I had a great experience right from the get go. Staff was knowledgeable and helpful. The location is easy to find. The dive center has the basic amenities required for a diver. The gear is in excellent shape and looks almost new. The dive sites are not too far offshore, visibility can be hit or miss but saw a variety... More

The dive is a 40 min boat ride to the ocean and you literally see the change in colour of the water from muddy to blue. It was a good experience with the dive too. Sad side there was no corals as fishing... More
