Amazing PADI scuba diving experience
Feb 2020
We were looking for a place to try diving as we had never been before. The owner, Anindya, was very welcoming and knowledgable and made the pool diving lesson very fun. The open water diving was amazing, diving around a shipwreck off the coast of a beautiful island in the ocean (Grande Island). The staff we dived with, Bruce and Gayatri were really good at taking it slowly, making sure we were comfortable with everything and they were PADI certified. The equipment was safe and they provided all of it - no need to bring masks or anything. They catered for our dietary needs (vegetarian) and provided lots of delicious local food for lunch during the open water diving. Also, on site there is a really nice street food vendor who sells yummy samosas and hot chai tea. We would 100% recommend getting some food from him as it helped to keep the kids occupied during the journey to the island! Another hidden gem was the Literati library and cafe. We came here after our dive as it is just down the road from the dive centre and enjoyed the library and luxurious chocolate brownie! The cafe is well documented on google maps but easy to miss, tucked away into a side street. This is a great place to come for beginner and experienced divers and we'd definitely come again!

Amazing PADI diving experience
Feb 2020 • Family
This was my first dive,the staff were so kind, helpful and informative. First we went to the pool to learn the basics which is optional but I recommend it for beginners.

The next day we went on a boat (provided with snacks!) to Suzie's wreck and did two 40 min dives. We dived with Bruce and Gayatri who were both really reassuring when I was nervous.

A great bonus was the lovely chai walla who came on his bike and sold fresh samosas and chai☕☕☕!!! Overall, a great experience with lovely people, I would definitely recommend to everyone! 😁👌

By far.. THE BEST
Mar 2019 • Friends
I just love this dive school better than any other I have dived with across the globe.

I have dived with schools in Maldives, Srilanka, Thailand and United States but never felt as confident and comfortable like this one.

Mr. Anindo who is the founder of this school is a great teacher and has maintained his style of teaching with all his instructors.

They are very good with their lessons and ensure that all their students learn to their best potential.
They are extremely careful about the safety of every individual who dives in their presence.
Every granular detail is well taken care of.

Prateek was my current dive master. He is very humble, polite, calm, confident and caring. We just loved to dive with him.

OVERALL THESE GUYS ARE FABULOUS.
THEY BRING OUT THE PASSION OF DIVING IN EVERY INDIVIDUAL WHO EVER DIVED WITH THEM.

GOA AQUATICS 👏👏👏

I did my Padi open water certification with Goa Aquatics. Mike, our instructor, was professional, patient, helpful and fun. I felt safe at any time and now I feel well prepared for my future divings. Thanks :)

A Good Morning's Diving
Apr 2018 • Family
We were in Goa for a weekend, so booked a morning's diving. The owner, Anindya, was quick to respond by email and provided accurate information about the diving. The kit was all well-maintained and the dive centre was well-organised. The jetty is about 4km from the dive centre. The boat ride out to the site (Grande Island) took about an hour. We first dived Suzy's Wreck (about 10-12m deep). Visibility was limited to about 5 metres, but there was plenty of marine life on the wreck to keep the dive interesting (scorpion fish, large potato grouper, snappers etc). The second dive was a shallow dive in the bay of Grande Island (see picture). Viz was about 5 metres with a bit of surge. Fruit and snacks were provided all morning. I was diving with two children. The staff were helpful, knowledgeable and professional. We all really enjoyed the day. Anindya was enthusiastic and runs a good dive centre. I would recommend this dive outfit and would happy dive here again.

Excellent Dive Centre
Mar 2018 • Solo
I used Goa Aquatics on a solo trip to Goa, and did 2 dives with them.

The dive instructors are friendly, experienced and very helpful for all levels of divers.

The equipment is well maintained and is overall an excellent PADI dive centre.

The first dive was a shipwreck, which was very good, and the second over coral, so completely different experiences.

Would definitely use again and recommend to any divers

They Made Me a Diver for Life
Feb 2018 • Solo
Anindya transformed me from a complete mess underwater to a confident Rescue Diver. If you want to learn a tremendous amount about diving and marine biology from people that are somehow even warmer than your own family, come here. Goa Aquatics made me fall in love with India. I planned to stay in Calangute a week and ended up staying a month just so that I could spend more time with this marvelous team. I dove with them 19 times and each time their attention to detail and safety was extraordinary. They are genuine people and fantastic Instructors and Divemasters. Look no further—your only regret will be that you didn’t allot more time to spend with Goa Aquatics.
