1. Certification Diving
2. Recreational Diving.
1. Certification Diving: Certification diving is an introduction to professional scuba diving where you get a chance to dive free on your own with your scuba. This diving is conducted by all the diving institutions. To become a certified diver, you will be trained by PADI divers for a day. They will give you all the minute instructions along with the practice sessions and trials with them. On the second day, you will have to dive on your own, once you complete your dive you will get a diver certificate. Charges of this diving depend on the institution or company you are diving with. Usually, getting a certification will cost you around 25,000-30,000 INR
2.) Recreational Diving (Diving with an Instructor): This is the most common format of Scuba Diving. In this format, you are supposed to book your diving time with the diving institution and you will have to dive in with your instructor. You will be attached to him with a cord and he will guide you through. Immediate instructions are given before reaching the sight like Underwater communication signals to communicate with your diver, Inhale/exhale techniques through Scuba, and ear equalizing. Charges may vary from 600-4000/- INR depending upon the site, how deep you dive, and your diving time.
2. The risk factor in Diving with an Instructor is 0% even if it is your first time and you do not know how to swim.
3. Listen to the instructions given to you by your diver very carefully as you cannot talk inside the water and the only medium of communication is through the signals.
