I am lucky enough to have dived in some sweet spots around the world, if you are thinking of diving in The Andaman Islands, Barefoot are your dive operators, OK so they may be a bit more expensive but in my mind you get what you pay for. Equipment is fully functional and clean, you go to some offshore spots...

We had a 3 nights' stay here and the overall experience was superb, including the whole arrangement of scuba diving which was arranged and facilitated by the team here. Special mention for that! The cottages are right across the beautiful beach making the location very exotic and beautiful to stay. Would recommend this to all!

Did my refresher diving course here. The cost was reasonable. We stayed at AC cottage. These are neat and clean as well. You get room serviced twice a day. The luggage and their receiving at the airport, hotel in Portblair and the cruze is well managed. People are there to pick you at every step. AC Cottages are little expensive....

As reasonably experienced certified divers, we struggled to find any reviews on the serious diving around Havelock. So here goes... Barefoot 5-Star PADI IDC dive centre at its Scuba resort is a well run, well equipped operation. It has a large converted fishing boat for getting to the local dive sites and a twin engined speed boat to access the...

Barefoot scuba is very well stocked with diving gears, boats and a lot of good instructors. We were 3 friends and went to 6 different dive sites in total. It was everything we expected. Try asking for diving instructors like Shonali, Riley and Shruti....they have the skills and also the personality to put you in complete ease in the choppiest...

Amazing staff! Havelock island can be challenging to get to but as soon as I walked up to Barefoot scuba, things became easy. I went to Barefoot as new diver looking to get PADI certified and it was an excellent choice. Every staff member I interacted with was knowledgeable and welcoming. My scuba instructor in particular, Rylan, was incredibly patient,...

This is a review about the dive operation, not the resort. We stayed at Barefoot at Havelock on the other side of the island, but came over to Barefoot Scuba as they were a related operation. I was not too impressed with this connection, as the Barefoot at Havelock did not offer any discounts or even a free ride over...
