Scuba Diving in India: Bonds and Upgrades

Scuba Diving in India: Bonds and Upgrades

Scuba diving in India is all about exploring the hidden gems that India has to offer. Which is why, here, at Temple Adventures that is exactly what we aim to do!
This last week at Temple Adventures was a good mix of fun and work. We decided to go for an overnight road trip to Chennai, with our full team.

Last week we decided to go scuba diving in Chennai and explore one of the gorgeous quarries out there.

We were a good twenty divers in two buddy groups exploring the quarry.
Some of us even found a tree underwater at a shallower depth.

Side Mount Diving in India

Scuba diving in India is a growing adventure sport and at Temple Adventures we optimise diving to the fullest. Which is why this week our staff decided to do a little upgrade to their regular scuba configuration.

Christmas came a little late but we are super happy!

Our PADI Instructor Siddharth and Assistant Instructor Tanvi did their PADI Sidemount Diver course with Staff Instructor Donarun Das.

The course started with confined sessions in a swimming pool, where our divers learnt some new skills.

We then headed to our favourite quarry near Pondicherry for some open water side mount diving.
