Team Lacadives (Havelock -Taj),

A big THANK YOU. Your professionalism and warmth made my diving trips the most memorable part of my stay at Havelock. Pratik S - thank you for being so patient and supportive during all our dives - and explaining the nuances of diving in a fun way. I come away confident that I have learned from the best - and could not have chosen a more picturesque location !!!

Also, a big shout out to Kriti, Gaurav, Ravi, Tamil, Akram, and the entire team at Lacadives at Havelock (Taj) for supporting us with everything - perfect equipment - with safety first at all times. We are all waiting to come back for more - with so many wonderful sites nearby.

Just completed my Advanced Open Water course at Lacadives in ChidiyaTapu. My instructor (Timi) was really great - knowledgeable, patient, fun and he spent time discussing scuba techniques that are important. The whole team was very welcoming and good fun. I didn't have transport to the accommodation so they ferried me backwards and forwards without question. I hope to be back there next year! Thank you Lacadives.

Lacadives is considered to be a 5 Star in managing scuba diving in Andamans.
But the most insensible team which has taken 11k ( almost looted) with no pictures and videos , thereby after four days mentioned that they have technical issues and the camera could not retrieve pics and videos, surprisingly no back ups
Now with once upon a lifetime experience and high priced l , would you not want to go to the cheaper guy outside who will charge you only 3k .
This diving centre must be fooling people for the past 20 years and don't know with how many they have technical issues.
Also they are attached with Taj Exotica- Havelock.
Very disappointed.

I did my advanced course at lacadives, chidiyatapu. My experience was brilliant. As a solo traveller, I was taken care of very well by the staff and I felt safe there. Would definitely recommend to everyone.

A disappointing experience, loose and incompetent manager, Titiksh, poor equipment... If you love diving, be kind to yourself and family and friends, it is an adventure sport where competent, professional persons are required. And nice and friendly could be expected...

Me my wife and my son Andy went for a diving trip to ChidiyaTapu with Lacadives. Andy completed his Advanced Open Water Diver certification course with Lavadives (Instructor Rahil). Me and my wife also did some snorkelling and a guided Discover Scuba experience. The crew at Lacadives (Titiksh and gang) is fun loving and professional. The environment in Chidiyatpu is such that the serious learners can focus on the diving part and upgrade their skills. Its a great place to do course and also have some fun along the way. Reefwatch the marine conservation NGO is next door and does some very interesting work. We had a great time with these inspiring bunch of young professionals. Would highly recommend Lacadives.

Great 2-day scuba diving + snorkeling fun for our family including 2 children thanks to dive masters Anvidha and Prateek! They were very patient and helpful with the training, and the on-the-boat equipment was flawless and well planned too. Thanks folks for a wonderful all-round experience at Havelock.

Diving with Lacadives at Chidiyatapu was an amazing experience. The team was really warm and welcoming and made it a really fun experience. They were really patient with me during the open water course and let me take all the time to learn and practice all the skills both during the training sessions as well as while on the dives. They even made it really special for my mom who did snorkelling and the discover scuba diving. She loved the whole experience so much that she plans to get her open water certification, and a huge reason for that is because the team made her feel so comfortable throughout.

Overall it was an amazing experience and I couldn’t recommend these guys more!

A fun team and rather good crew but the management requires significant improvement especially a guy called Seemant who handles dive allocations and Dev.

Awfully disappointed that they didn't schedule a dive for me on my last day and bumped someone else up in my place. Out of the 10 odd countries I have dived in, this was probably my worst experience with management and scheduling of dives.
