Starting with building ‘Temple Reef’ in 2013, an artificial reef dive site, to having a whopping 26 dive sites presently, our journey has been absolutely epic! From Aravind’s Wall, which has mind-boggling Fan Corals, to a trawler wreck dive site, we’d like to think we put Pondicherry on the map for mainland SCUBA diving in India and quite possibly the best. Naturally we aimed for more and became a PADI Instructor Development Centre in 2014, where we trained people from all over the world as SCUBA Instructors. As we have abundant deep dive sites, we explored recreational technical diving and became the first PADI Tec Rec dive centre in Pondicherry. We’ve had a lot of firsts in our history that we’re super proud of!
Side by side, we began selling one of the best and reliable SCUBA diving gear – Scubapro – to customers and other dive centres across India, launched the Temple Reef Foundation for marine conservation, conducted beach cleanups, started our sister dive centre in Chennai, became the one and only Pure Air centre in India etc. It’s been one hella ride guys!
Our success is shared with the hardworking and experienced staff, local community support and valued customers – one big Temple family. And of course, our beloved dogs and cats included! We want to make the whole diving experience safe, fun and unforgettable. We’re pro quality over quantity and believe in going that extra nautical mile to cater to our guests’ needs. Our ultimate goal is for our customers to have an amazing time and come back for more!
