Visibility was 3.5mtrs but the experience was one of a kind. Best time to explore is Oct-Dec with less turbid water. Our diving instructor Ajay gave us a brief about the equipments and after a swimming pool session we went to the diving site and with gears on we Boat dived into open water and rest was breathtaking. Flying Fish Scuba school also gives you photos and videos of your dive the same day. Thank you for such a fun-filled experience - especially for me as a first time diver.

I want to share our disappointing experience with Mr. Amitabh and his scuba diving services. My husband and I, both non-swimmers, booked our first scuba dive by paying Rs 4000 in advance and Rs 1000 upon reaching the center. After checking all the cancellation policies and safety measures outlined on their website, given their partnership with Goa Tourism.

Initially, we were impressed by their elaborate promises, accompanied by a video and frequent Instagram posts highlighting an hour of pool training and an additional hour of extensive training before the dive. However, the actual experience turned out to be drastically different.

On the day of the dive, they changed the scheduled time from 6 am to 6:45 am, making us wait for over an hour alongside two other scuba vendors. Despite the promised pool training, none was provided. This was particularly concerning for us as non-swimmers relying on the expertise of supposed PADI instructors.

The nightmare unfolded when we started the dive at 8:30 am. Instead of the expected pool training, we received only a 5-minute instruction on breathing with the cylinder in open ocean water. As non-swimmers, the shock of wearing scuba equipment for the first time in the open sea, without adequate preparation, left us struggling to breathe. I vividly remember pleading with my instructor to remove the gear, shaken and on the verge of tears. My husband had a similar experience.

Mr. Amitabh's money-minded and rude behaviour aggravated the situation. Despite our discomfort and the absence of promised training, he demanded the balance payment. Due to safety concerns, we chose not to proceed with the dive. Mr. Amitabh's refusal to refund our money, despite his failure to provide proper training, only added to our frustration.

We stress the importance of pool training for non-swimmers, which was not clarified on their website or social media. We encourage others to request a refund if pool training is not provided, as it is crucial for a positive scuba diving experience, especially for beginners.

Mr. Amitabh, while you may choose to defend yourself, blocking us on Instagram when we sought a refund is unprofessional. Transparent communication and fulfilling promised training could have turned this experience around positively. In the end, the money is not our primary concern; it is the disappointment and fear that marred our first scuba diving experience.

Keep the Rs 5000; our priority was a memorable experience, not a financial dispute. We never asked for a refund, and we let go of our money, thinking we enjoyed ourselves with other divers on the boat. However, your continued blame and accusations only tarnished our experience further.

For readers, I recommend prioritizing pool training and seeking a refund if it is not provided. It is the responsibility of the trainers to offer proper training for a safe and enjoyable experience.

Mr. Amitabh, reflect on your actions. Blocking customers and blaming them will not resolve the issue. Instead, honest communication and fulfilling commitments would have made a significant difference.

Absolutely magical experience. The scuba instructors are all experts and they're all passionate about the scuba diving. The same instructors who would be in the actual ocean dive, would be providing training in a pool before doing the actual dive...all of them are super friendly and amazing at calming people who might be nervous about the dive and water. The team provides light snacks before the dive and lunch after. They guide all of us through the whole process and clarify all doubts and fears we may have about the dive. The dive itself is to look at a shipwreck and beautiful, unique fishes and a few corals can be easily seen underwater, along with the shipwreck. It was a great experience.

Got certified with flying fish doing the classroom portion prior to our trip!!! where we would then do our open water portion. Instructors were thorough, entertaining and experienced. They made sure our skills were solidified in the pool before letting us go. Would return here again if we decide to get more courses done.

We love scuba diving and the team of flying fish who are always helpful and thoughtful every time we stop in for a gas fill, or whether it’s to chat about course options, upcoming dive trips or just to swap stories with other avid divers. The place seems to be constantly buzzing with activity and they always make you feel like part of the team. We love the technical instruction and courses and dependable staff!

I had so much fun getting my open water certification with flying fish scuba diving! The enthusiasm of the instructors was contagious and made me love diving. The instructors were always there to help me when I was having problems. They were also extremely funny and nice!

Great service here at the flying fish team, friendly, detailed, patient and client-focussed. Very good scuba dive Company with very knowledgeable staff. I bought both gear here and went on one guided dive. Excellent selection of high quality gear and would recommend the unlimited courses if you are diving a lot.
