There are three spots near malvan fort for shallow scuba diving. here you will get to see cluster of fishes and rich corals... for deep diving you should visit dandi area and ekkacha dhonda point, in tarkarli also you will get to enjoy deep diving.

We did snorkelling, para sailing, jet skiing and other water activities. Nice experience. Don't expect clear corals like Maldives but OK for first timers. You can get all activities including dolphin viewing ( suggested early morning) for a avkage price of approx 2500 pp
