Ok, if you are amongst those who haven’t tried their hands at scuba diving yet, let me throw some light on it for you. Scuba diving is a mode of underwater diving in which a scuba diver uses a self contained underwater breathing apparatus which is called scuba to breathe underwater. First of all, you will need a good dive shop and training center in Goa that offers a wide range of SSI and PADI certification courses. In this, there will be a pool session for one hour a day prior to the dive in which they will teach you about the use of equipment, breathing underwater, regulator removal, regulator recovery, mask clearing, alternate air source use and some basics for underwater swimming. 

Best Time for Diving: The best time to enjoy Scuba Diving in Goa is from Mid October to mid April when the Arabian waters are serene and crystal clear with water temperatures ranging from 27-30° C making diving a comfortable experience. The depth for scuba diving in Goa ranges from 3-30 m. Whether you are a novice or an expert at diving, there are options for everyone. Mentioned below are thediving spots in  Goa that will make your dive in Arabian waters memorable and thrilling.

    Neha I have done sea walking in Pattaya but never gathered the courage to try out Scuna diving because I do not know how to swim.I definitely want to see the beautiful under sea with all those fishes but it seems really scary.
