Initially there were lot of hiccups and confusions, starting from the booking phase. The guy at the Barefoot office in Bangalore, Shadaan, was quite rude and it was a very unpleasant experience. However everything worked out perfectly due to the intervention of Ann, who heads the place. Instructor allotted to us was Ved, he was too good and didn't let...

Upon reaching there, the instructor​ allotted to us had a totally negative approach from day 1. On day 3, we gave the feedback to Ann, who heads the place and she...

We have just returned from a 6-day, 12 tank diving trip with Barefoot Scuba. My wife and I have dived all over the world (300 dives each) and Havelock is a world class dive destination. Barefoot Scuba were exceptional as well. The dive sites teem with fish, so much so that on some dives you don't know where to look....

Low white lights, which was unpleasant for me- I couldn't even see my face in the mirror. And when I got into bed, I realized that one...

I am lucky enough to have dived in some sweet spots around the world, if you are thinking of diving in The Andaman Islands, Barefoot are your dive operators, OK so they may be a bit more expensive but in my mind you get what you pay for. Equipment is fully functional and clean, you go to some offshore spots...

We had a 3 nights' stay here and the overall experience was superb, including the whole arrangement of scuba diving which was arranged and facilitated by the team here. Special mention for that! The cottages are right across the beautiful beach making the location very exotic and beautiful to stay. Would recommend this to all!

Did my refresher diving course here. The cost was reasonable. We stayed at AC cottage. These are neat and clean as well. You get room serviced twice a day. The luggage and their receiving at the airport, hotel in Portblair and the cruze is well managed. People are there to pick you at every step. AC Cottages are little expensive....

I never really review places, but this one I really had to! Was curious about diving and did the discover scuba diving dive (complete novice at diving) with Shonali - she is AMAZING and extremely patient and extremely trustworthy. I felt very safe with her!
