Perhaps the best decision to have delved into the wonder of underwater with Lacadives. Adding to that, I lucked out with my instructor, Shantanu Savant who made my initiation into open water diving full of ease and a whole lot of fun. Right from the basic concepts to the demonstration of every detail, the instruction was imparted, patiently, down to the tee.
A lot of free flowing laughter underwater, all the while the allowance to explore the space I found myself in.
Fallen for this adventure sport as I felt it to be - will be going back for my advanced training that’s for sure.
Last, but not the least, a shout-out to the culture within the Lacadives camp.. to these bunch of Divers and all that they do for curious newbies like me. Glad to have chosen to do my Open water diver certification with them.

Took a chartered boat ride for my son's birthday. The staff on board were super nice and had gotten some fruit for us. We saw some standard fare islands and one spot with coral.

Our issue was there was no one to point us to where to find the boat once we got to the ferry. No board, no signs nothing. We had to keep asking around, and walk to the other end of the ferry with 2 kids and an infant. Giving us this information when booking would have helped.

Small details like this matter when you pay a steep price for a charter boat. Average experience.

We also had a bad experience with their sales staff, Jothika, when booking, she was rude and mouthed off to us because we took a while to decide if and when we wanted to book the ride, as our kids were tired.

I went to complete a open water diver course. It spanned over a total of three days. It is a PADI 5 star dive centre.

The staff and instructors (my instructors were Satish and Rahil) are very knowledgeable and experienced.

Each part of the training went really well and they focus deeply on our learning. The location is not crowded as well with tourists.

I reccomend Lacadives at Chidiyatapu for anyone that seeks to learn diving.

We had such a wonderful time diving with the crew at Lacadives. Special shout out to Ravi and Denzil for taking such excellent care of us when we were learning how to dive. Both of them were super encouraging and we had an excellent time doing our Open Water Diver and Advanced Open Water Diver certification. Would love to go diving with Lacadives again!

Absolutely thrilled with my diving experience at Lacadives, all thanks to my phenomenal instructor, Havovi! Right from the start at their serene Chidiyatapu Center, Havovi had a way of making diving feel effortless and enjoyable. She patiently explained everything, even teaching me to float with fins in the open sea, which felt incredible. Diving with her felt safe and comfortable, making my experience unforgettable.

Lacadives isn't just about the stunning location or the top-quality equipment; it's the incredible instructors like Havovi, along with the supportive team members Vinod and Geetanjali, that truly make it stand out. They instill confidence and provide personalized attention that makes all the difference.

A heartfelt shoutout to Havovi and the Lacadives crew for making my diving adventure so memorable. If diving is on your bucket list, Lacadives is the place to go for an unparalleled experience!

Exceptional scuba diving experience with Lacadives! The team, especially Greetika, was incredibly professional and patient. Despite my fear of the ocean, Greetika did a fantastic job training me. During the dive, both Greetika and Shantanu ensured my brother and I were comfortable, making it a truly amazing adventure. Highly recommend!
A special thank you to Titiksh and Anmol.
