The fishes, the corals, the blueness and the vastness, it all was so breathtaking. You have to have to experience it by yourself! 40 minutes where they take you 20 meters deep is what is recommended for first timers and trust me it is more than enough because you also are getting your breathing pattern right, understanding things and of course experiencing the beauty. We saw some beautiful corals and sea life, and while all of it is not captured in the video, it more than gives you an idea of the amazing time we had underwater.
We went for the dive with the company/diving school Scuba Andaman at Beach No. 2 which is also known as Govind Nagar beach. They do not associate themselves with any agents and so they charge you only INR 2,000 for a 40 minute dive along with a pick and drop + pictures + video, which after all the prices that I found out, turned out to be the most reasonable. I wanted to do the one hour session which costs INR 3,000 but they told me that for a first timer 40 minutes is more than enough, which shows that they are not there to fleece you. A lovely lovely experience, I am now hooked, and want to go back for the certification course now, which will hopefully happen soon! :)
