We had an excellent stay in the fan cooled tents at the Barefoot Scuba in May. Our family of 4 with a 13 year old and 1.5 year old were very comfortable on the large bed and a mattress on the floor. The tent has a sit out, a room with the bed, a changing room and a huge bathroom.... More

I completed my open water and advanced open water courses at Barefoot Scuba Resort in February 2016. The cost was about RS 26,400 or $510 Canadian for my open water course as well as accommodations in an a-frame hut and an additional Rs 14,900 or $290 Canadian. All in both courses and accommodations cost about RS 41,300 or $800 Canadian.... More

There is usually a lack of trust factor when going diving in India. I, however was convinced by their individual instructor arrangement and went ahead with them. It was an amazing experience for both me and my wife, who admittedly was scared. By the way, neither of us know swimming. However, the instructors there were with us throughout and gave... More

First off, let me caveat by saying that this is likely the best center on Havelock, and the dives themselves were beyond gorgeous. The reefs around here are intensely alive and the experience was top notch. However, while the dive instructors and dive masters are very well trained the facilities are quite rough. The equipment and boats are *very* well... More

Was here for a fun dive after an extensive deep dive certification elsewhere.. diving at beach 2 in the bright shallow waters was very peaceful and sort of beautifully winded up my experience in the Andamans. Spotted a sting ray.. the jeep out there in the wild was a spectacular view.. Pure diving experience.. nothing more, nothing less. Thanks guys!

My husband, daughter and myself spent Easter on this beautiful island and signed up to scuba dive with Barefoot Scuba. As we had not dived in a while we had to do a refresher course for half a day and then booked two dives a day for 4 days. The whole experience with Barefoot was reliable, efficient and fun and...
