Andaman Bubbles is a friendly dive centre located on Havelock Island in the Andamans. We opened our doors in December 2008. With a strong emphasis placed on safety, we offer professional quality service, but in a flexible relaxed manner. We here at Andaman Bubbles have a strong passion for the island and the sea that surrounds it. We look forward to sharing that passion with you, not just as our customers but also as our friends. We have new and well-maintained equipment and have taken the step to have equipment quality above that of standard rental gear you find with most dive centers. We hope this will offer our customers as well as experienced divers the opportunity to consider if they really need to bring their own equipment. We stock Apeks fully balanced regulators, Seaquest BCDs, open heel fins, shoes, masks and a selection of short/long wetsuits. Also Suunto dive computers/compasses and digital cameras are available for rent. We also have 72 12-liter cylinders with yoke valve and 10 with din inserts for customers with Din first stage. For those that tend to be a bit heavy on air, we have four 15 liter cylinders and for the smaller divers four 10 liter cylinders. We have a German built L&W 300 Nautic compressor with digital maintenance system to prevent any contamination in the cylinders. We follow the Professional Association of Diving Instructors (PADI) as well as Scuba Schools International (SSI) general standards and recommendations. Most of our dive sites are suitable for all diver levels and certifications. But, a few require Advanced open water certificate and more experience due to depths and possibilities for strong currents. If you wish to further your diving education one of our experienced instructors would be happy to assist you. We offer almost all SSI and PADI courses from recreational diving to professional diving.

I had tried diving once before in my life and decided that it really wasn't my cup of sea. However, as a friend of mine decided to try diving in Havelock, I decided to give it a second try. Subhash from Andaman Bubbles proved out to be the most patient, but still a very determined instructor, and he got me... More

We had decided to do two days of diving, but it had been over 6 months since our last dive so they required that we do a refresher. We understood the reasoning, but the 3 hour refresher on the local reef that we drove to was considerably more expensive than a day of diving (1.5 hour boat ride each way,... More

We went to Havelock with the sole intent of getting a certification in Scuba diving and Andaman bubbles didn't disappoint us in the least. Our SSI Open water instructor Abhijeet deserves a special mention. He was calm, extremely patient, friendly, serious at times and fun to dive with. I would recommend them anytime to anyone - be it beginners with... More

A lot of the resorts have their own diving groups but we went to Andaman Bubbles because they seemed to have the highest volume of divers. They insisted on me doing a refresher, which while slightly annoying, spoke of their professionalism. The staff were helpful, friendly and fun and I would go with them again. Some of the mouthpieces on... More

I am so glad we chose Andaman Bubbles as their entire team, equipment and planning was fantastic and they made us feel super safe and secure! Despite hitting bad weather, their team... More

I came to havelock for five days and decided the dive for three of them. I got a great offer on a Refresher course with one additional dive the same day. Then I went for the Advanced Course. Unfortunately I got extremely seas sick on the boat to the dive site and could not complete any of my scheduled dives... More
