Celebrating 25 years of continued service to diving in Goa. Goa Diving, a PADI dive centre and India's first mainland scuba diving school was established in 1991 by Scotsman William Downie, an experienced diver with many logged dives around the Scottish coast and one of the first divers to explore the Goan coast during his time working with the Indian Navy from 1985 to 1991. As well as being the oldest and first scuba diving school in mainland India, Goa Diving continues to open up new dive sites along the Konkan coast.
Goa Diving operates from Bogmalo Beach and scuba dives at Grand Island. Scuba diving at Grande Island is just a 10 min boat ride from Bogmalo beach . The village of Bogmalo is ideally situated 10 minutes from Dabolim Airport, and can offer 1 to 5 start accommodation.
If you love to scuba dive, or want to learn how to scuba dive give us a call and we can meet all your needs. Goa diving offers PADI certification from Beginner to professional level.
Local dive sites include the SS Mary(a steamship built in West Hartlepool, England in 1948) which lies in shallow water close to Grande Island. Other sites include a quaint coral bay and the reef around the island.
Pigeon or Netrani Island, the only sensible alternative to local Goan dive sites, is dived as an overnight excursion and offers abundant marine life in clear water conditions.
