“My first scuba-diving experience :))”

Malvan Marine Sanctuary
Ranked #5 of 22 things to do in Malvan
Attraction details
Reviewed 7 November 2013

This is in Malvan,Maharashtra nearby the fort amidst water.I put on a rented black suit and dived into water around 8ft deep. The water so far not stirred gives an almost clear vision of marine life underwater - fishes, algae, and corals. As my palms were bare, the skin had got kind of scratched as I had touched the stones to move forward. Scuba-diving here is fun if not the guides mess up your freedom to move around underwater. Got video-shooted by a guide which was great. My ears were getting closed as I reached the lowest point, guess water pressure was high. My suggestion is do either snorkelling/scuba-diving here. You don't have to do the both on the same place. A good start up session for beginners as water is not much deep here.

Situated just outside the rampart walls of Sindhudurg Fort is the only "Scuba Diving/Snorkeling" site for tourists on the Indian sub-continent.Had been "Scuba Diving/Snorkeling" with "Trek Mates India" group and the experience of underwater diving was amazing. Observing the fish on the corals is a indescribable experience.If visiting Malvan don't miss a visit to this site.
