Experience Scuba Diving
Experience another world wearing scuba equipment into the Bay of Bengal
Temple Adventures, a scuba diving center, is East Coast's first and the biggest one in mainland India. We started diving off the East Coast around 10 years ago, continuing on the diving done by the Pondicherry Ashram. We, along with our sister Dive Center off Chennai are now PADI 5 Star IDC Dive Centres that conducts experience programmes to courses to even catering to people who wish to follow their passion of becoming Dive professionals. We have been exploring the deeper parts of the coastline and are now offering Technical diving courses and dives to dive those sites.
We have 26 dive sites, some of which are artificial and some are natural. Aravind's Wall, Temple Reef, Danny's Eel Garden , Pirates Booty, Macro Garden and Blue fairies are some of our famous dive sites. From Aravind's wall which has beautiful gorgonian Fan Corals to Temple Reef which is an artificial reef with palm leaves, scooters, and various other metal structures we have something for divers of all kinds. Our recently discovered sites include a trawler wreck, as well as sites called 3 Roses and Botanical Garden which lie at technical depths.
We take pride in the fact that we provide the cleanest filtered air to all our divers in India, our regularly serviced well-maintained equipment for all our divers and of course our 100% safety record that extends to all of our team, with a combined teaching experience of over a hundred years!
It was my first scuba experience and I am glad I chose this place. An open water certification was a brave decision I had made and everybody around here made it happen. Our instructor Soumyarshi (J) was as patient & understanding inside the water as he was tough while teaching. I feel accomplished learning a new skill and all thanks to the very friendly and warm crew at Temple adventures. I would love to go back soon. Thank you!
Had my first dive on 11th sep 2016. The trainers were so frndly..and they made us learn the critical science of diving very easily. Trained by Leon..he is so good..and trained us with patience.spcl thanks to my dive master pushpak for a safe dive..!! And dany for some beatiful photos underwater...!!!

I just completed my PADI Advanced Open Water course with Temple Adventures at Pondicherry. Not only was everyone concerned exceedingly professional, super efficient, and very conscious about maintaining the highest standards of quality and safety - but they made sure that the entire experience was incredibly fun! Will definitely be coming back for some fun diving in the future!
Did a couple of fun dives. Staff was knowledgeable and make excellent dive buddies. Temple reef effort hosts a variety of sea life. I'd recommend this place.
Two perfect dives with the staff of Temple Adventure. Thanks for your fun and your professionalism.
