An excellent PADI dive centre. The schedule for the Dive course was well planned and executed. I found the food in the Andamans to be good overall and the Cafe did not disappoint. Service at the Cafe is slow in the morning because everyone has breakfast just before going on the dives, but nothing that cannot be solved by some... More

I would suggest to either pre-book or spot book water sports at this resort. The trainers are really professional and they make you feel very comfortable before going under-water. The best part was they made a CD of my under-water diving at just a minimal of Rs. 500 only which contains beautiful photos of marine life and you enjoying the... More

Barefoot scuba was all that we expected and a little more. We stayed in the non AC sea view cottage (sea view + bugdet+ cottage). It is a steal. They have an execclent PADI diving centre with very well trained and friendly instructors. The well placed hammocks provide a safe haven to spend time at any time of the day.... More

Good experience. People and staff is nice and cooperative. The only thing is price is little more compared to other Diving orgs and also the aquatic life I saw was OK OK and not as amazing as you could see in Joly Buoy island.

We stayed at Barefoot @ Havelock, went to Barefoot Scuba for the Discover Scuba Diving course. First dive ever and I have to say it was a delightful experience. The guys at Barefoot Scuba are a lively bunch, full of spirit. We were briefed on the basics of diving and given a form to fill. A 5 minute cab ride... More

My friend and I stayed at the Barefoot Scuba resort for two nights in March 2015. The bookings (done through e-mail) were very efficient. We stayed in one of the tented huts which despite not having an air conditioner was quite cool, clean and very comfortable. The transit arrangements to the resort and back were managed really professionally. The staff... More

I went to Barefoot Scuba for a day of scuba diving (early March). I was not able to get rooms there as my trip was planned just a month before. I had done my OW certification almost a year back and wanted to brush up on my diving so I signed for their lite scuba review. Sonali was my instructor... More

Basically we visited Havelock for Scuba dive and serene beaches. And definitely Barefoot Scuba is a place for that. We booked our accommodation and dive through their Chennai office. We have even asked for transfer from Portblair to havelock and back. They arranged it meticulously. Very Professional service and courteous staff. Resort offers three kind of accommodation. AC Cottage (Sea... More

Very efficient advance booking system including accommodation in Port Blair and transfers to and from the airport. The resort is beyond the busiest area of the island so nice and peaceful. We stayed in both a sea-facing duplex (the sea is some distance away) and in a tented cottage which was immense, very romantic and easily my favourite. On site... More
