Extremely unprofessional staff!!! Would not recommend to anyone!
I was diving with my husband with the Andaman Bubbles in April 2010. We had reserved 8 dives to each and payed in advance half of the sum.
By the second diving day I had developed a flu, and thought that I would not be diving
during that day, but "dive instructor" offered me some medicine (Sinex
Plus) so that I could dive. I dived twice during that day with the help of the medicine.
After those dives I developed a very strong pain in the ear and most of my
diving vacation ( 8 days) was ruined - no diving, just purchasing various
pain killers from the pharmacy, queing every day for the doctor who could
not help in any way. Neither did I receive any help or advice from the Andmana Bubbles.
One Indian man was studying there at that time for becoming a dive master, and he told
me that it had been unprofessional to offer me the medicine for diving. He speculated
that I had developed a barotrauma because of the medicine.
I consulted 7 times a doctor, and none of them had the ear lamp for looking
in my ear. Only back in Delhi I found an ear specialist and he made the
diagnosis of ruptured eardrum. It took few months to recover, and the scar
After contacting Andaman Bubbles for making a complaint about this (only after one year, but I wanted some kind of apology, and also ensure that the person would not do such thing for anybody else, this was done by the recommendation of another PADI dive instructor) .
In the email the staff told me that they do not remember this incident. I wanted to ensure that the Bubbles "dive masters" will never again do anything as unprofessional as offering flu medicine containing pain killers for divers.
Also apologies would have been expected.
