We chose to learn to dive in the Andemans and we chose Scuba Lov because they are supposed to be the best.

Wow! What an incredible experience. The patience and warmth of all the guides, the expertise of instruction, the attention to detail and the expertise in marine diversity....

Our instructor for the Open Water course was "42", yes that's his name! What a guy. So caring and thoughtful, and funny and safe... he allowed to experience Scuba as I think it should be; freeing and exhilarating and life affirming. When he handed us to Donald and Zohan for the final day of diving, nothing changed 😀

The whole experience with scubalov.in was amazing. The scuba diving instructors, including Sandeep, Cyrus, and Zohan, were super friendly and professional. The dive sites chosen were aptly done so for beginners that are non-certified.

We took a fantastic boat trip with Zohan, island hopping and snorkelling at a couple of reefs. The team were very friendly and helpful, and we saw lots of interesting fish and coral, topped off with a glorious return trip through the islands as the sun set. I then went scuba diving with Zohan later in the week, which was also excellent. He was a very calm and clear instructor, which put everyone in the group at ease. The dive itself was amazing, as we got to see lots of interesting creatures that I hadn’t seen while snorkelling. I would heartily recommend Scuba Lov to everyone!

Our recent adventures with Scubalov at Havelock left us in awe of the underwater wonders, showcasing the perfect blend of professionalism, passion, and adventure. We indulged in both snorkeling and scuba diving sessions, each leaving an indelible mark on our memories.

On the first day, we embarked on a guided snorkeling expedition in the open sea. The organization was top-notch, with a concise training session by the shore preparing us for the underwater adventure. A speed boat transported us to a prime snorkeling site, and we eagerly jumped into the crystal-clear waters. What initially worried me, especially concerning my 10-year-old daughter, turned out to be an absolute delight. She not only embraced the experience but emerged as the one enjoying it the most.

Day two saw us venturing into the depths with our first scuba diving experience. Despite my wife's initial apprehension, the Scubalov team went above and beyond to ensure her comfort and guide us through every step of the process. The professionalism and dedication of the entire team played a significant role in making our first dive a thrilling and memorable one. While my wife and I explored the underwater world, our daughter happily indulged in another round of snorkeling, further cementing the joy we found in the ocean depths.

A special note of gratitude to the entire Scubalov team for their passion and guidance throughout our underwater escapades. Their expertise and commitment to safety allowed us to fully enjoy the wonders beneath the surface, creating an experience that will be cherished for a lifetime.

To add another layer of adventure to our trip, we also participated in a sunrise kayaking session with Shankaran. This unique experience seamlessly blended stargazing and kayaking, creating a magical dawn journey. Shankaran's insightful commentaries about the stars added a captivating element to the serene surroundings, making it a truly memorable and immersive experience.

In conclusion, our time in Havelock was made special by Scubalov team. Whether you're a seasoned diver or a first-timer, Scubalov provides a gateway to the mesmerizing underwater world, backed by a team of passionate professionals. Our journey was not just about exploring the depths but also about discovering the warmth and expertise of a team that truly loves what they do. Highly recommended for anyone seeking a thrilling aquatic adventure in the Andaman Islands. Thank you Scubalov!!!

Was our first Scuba and was awesome experience. Went with Zohan and Gaurav and both were excellent. A short training is followed by dive. Recommend
1. Book in advance
2. Carry your scuba goggles, or make sure the one they give you fits well
3. If it's your first dive, don't panic, it took me some time , but once I settled in, it was a good experience

I tried the assisted scuba diving. This was my first time scuba diving and as pretty much a non swimmer. scubalov.in have their own reef at Sea Shells so we walked over some rocks out to the reef.
I was assisted by Dipesh who was absolutely excellent. I had a buoy and Dipesh held my hand the whole way.
He is extremely experienced and took me to see all the amazing fabulous fish.
A truly magical experience.

The best dive site and dive instructor I have ever dived with. I have dived with many dive instructors and their team but this one is my favourite. The staff here is so experienced and humble they made sure that my fun dives were more enjoyable and a memorable one. My instructor was nigel, he was the best instructor i have ever dived with. I had booked 2 days 4 dives with them but it was so good i did more 2dives on next day. Equipment and their boats are very well maintained. I will specially visit havelock next time to dive with them

Scuba was one of the most awaited bucket listed item for me. During our visit to Havelock, I gathered all my courage to finally give it a try. We booked a dive with Scuba Lov.in for a day after. With each passing time my nervousness was climbing high.. at a point I thought to ditch the plan. I somehow convinced my husband also for the same. However there was this “Zindagi na milegi dobara” kind of vibe which pushed me to give it a try and believe me it was the best decision I took. The team of scuba lov.in is such a professional one and truly amazing. During the training session itself half of the nervousness took a dip. I would have never known that morning would look that beautiful deep in that blue silent world. Thank you team Scuba lov.in for making the experience out of the world and simply beautiful 🩷
