Destinations like Sri Lanka, Thailand, Bali, Philippines and Andamans, offer a plethora of opportunities to learn diving. Head to any of these place for a weekend holiday or a week-long holiday and explore best of both the worlds (terrestrial and underwater).
One of the best destinations to kick off your diving career is Sri Lanka, our brethren nation. With nearly 1000 miles of coastline, Sri Lanka proves to be an excellent choice for diving adventures. From Whales to tiny nudibranchs, shipwrecks covered with corals and abundant schools of fish, the waters of Sri Lanka houses all! Plan your visit to Sri Lanka according to their monsoons, since diving depends heavily on that factor. You can visit Colombo, Hikkaduwa and Mirissa from October to May and Trincomalee from May to October.
Another spectacular destination to dive at is every Indian’s favorite destination, Bali. With 25% of the world’s species of fish, and 15% of its coral, this beautiful country is a must for any diver, novice or professional. Manta rays, Mola Mola (sunfish), schooling fish, an incredible wreck and colourful reefs are just what you can expect on a dive here. Bali being an all around the year destination, can be explored whenever. Although it is recommended to avoid the rainy season.
Kingdom of Thailand is your next best bet to acquire an unforgettable diving experience. Straddling two seas, the Gulf of Thailand merging into the South China Sea on one side and the Andaman on the other, Thailand ensures diving opportunities all year round. Swim your way through WWII wrecks, drop offs, holes, cave systems and a very diverse marine ecology.
Diving in Philippines is unlike any other and all the adjectives in the world would not do enough justice to describe how beautiful an experience it is. With 36,300 kms of coastline, 40,000 sq kms of coral reef supporting over 500 different types of coral and more than 2,400 types of fish, there is something for every diver in Philippines. Head to Boracay or Cebu for starters anytime between November to May and witness a wide array of life underwaters.
If all the above destinations seem too far fetched for you, head to Andaman and Nicobar Islands which boasts of vibrant coral reefs, huge schools of fish and pristine conditions or any other destinations in India like Goa, Karnataka, Kerala, Pondicherry, Tamil Nadu, etc.
Pighle neelam sa behta hua ye sama
Neeli-Neeli si khamoshiyaan
Na kahin hai zameen, na kahin Aasmaan
Sarsarati hui tehniyaan, pattiyaan
Keh raheen hai ki bas ek tum ho yahaan
Sirf main hoon
Meri saansein hain aur meri dhadkanein
Aisi gehraiyaan, aisi tanhaiyaan
Aur main sirf main
Apne hone par mujhko yaqeen aa gaya
These lines by Farhan Akhtar in the movie Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara, is exactly what you shall experience after your dive..
