No, it isn’t. Whenever injuries do occur though, it is only because careful attention wasn’t paid during training or the instructor wasn’t certified.

I wear contacts, will that be a problem?
Not at all. Make sure your face mask is fastened correctly so that water doesn’t fill up in them and you will be fine.

What do I need to carry with me when I come?
A bathing suit, towel, toiletries, T-shirts, shorts, and sunscreen lotion.

Is it possible for a non-diver to go onboard a dive?

Is it necessary to be a good swimmer or an experienced diver to scuba dive?
No, it is not as our trained personnel have the expertise to cater to beginners as well as experienced divers.

The Atlantis team was very professional. We stopped mid way for a quick snack. We finally got into the water dived in to see the many treasures lying under Goa’s turquoise waters. It was truly beautiful as we expected. The guide was not in a hurry to make us complete the dive fast so the two girls (my sisters) with us also enjoyed it. You are fine (even if you cannot swim) and that’s’ an unbelievable. Please don’t miss it!

Our first time scuba diving underwater was as fun as we expected to be. We spent the weekend trip exploring as much as possible but the resort diving was definitely the highlight. My friends were a little paranoid but the staff made us feel confident and comfortable.
Everything underwater is just so surreal. You need to check it out asap!

οι καλύτερες διακοπές περάσει ποτέ μέσα από την Ατλαντίδα σπορ. Θα μπορούσα να κάνω καταδύσεις στην Γκόα που ήταν Suenio μου και να μην ξοδέψετε μια περιουσία. αν δεν ήταν για Τσάρλι δεν είχε ενθαρρυνθεί και σήμερα δεν θα ήταν τόσο χαρούμενος. αιώνια χάρη. Αν μπορώ να τον επόμενο μήνα θα πάω και πάλι με τον φίλο μου. ασφάλιση πέφτει το θεαματικό τοπίο και μου ζήτησε να παντρευτεί.

Decided to cross this off the bucket list with the wife and no better people to do this with than the awesome folk at Atlantis water sports. We had an amazing time exploring the many sights underwater. Some of the most memorable moments we experienced will stay with us. Over all, a very pleasant experience and the staff were friendly and accommodating.

My grandma gave me a trip to any part of the world I chose for my sweet sixteens and as I know that Goa is one of the most spectacular places on earth I decided to ask her for a scuba diving package. So I booked a resort diving package for both of us. I never thought my granny was going to do it with me but she felt so safe after the training session that she dived with me. We took some cool pics underwater. My friends on Instragram liked all my photos. <3 <3 <3 #adventurousgranny

At my age people think I’m crazy if I stay home that’s why I’m always looking for new adventures. This time i went scuba diving in Goa, India. I booked for a resort diving package. Charlie, an old friend of mine and the owner of Atlantis Watersports, convinced me and personally took me to the training pool. I have to admit that it was not easy at First but when you dive in the crystal clear waters of Goa, you forget about your fears.

La verdad es que nunca me imagine que a esta altura de mi vida yo iba a estar haciendo actividades de alto riesgo. Fue todo una sorpresa cuando mis hijas y mi esposo me dieron mi regalo de aniversario de bodas. Goa debe ser mi lugar en el mundo y es por eso que ahi pude hacer scuba diving. Por supuesto que mi esposo estuvo conmigo todo el tiempo pero no se si disfruto tanto como yo. El se hizo muy amigo del propietario del lugar y en unos meses nos va a visitar en Chile.

To celebrate me birthday I wanted to get away from my stressful routine so I looked for some fun options online and found Atlantis Watersports, They offered a resort diving package and I was glad to accept. Unforgettable Experience from the very moment I dived into the training centre. The real thing was even better so I’m happy I choose Atlantis.

Ex classmates wanted a class 73 meeting but we all wanted something different. One of the boys in the whatsapp group suggested going to Goa for the day and another one mentioned that there was a special scuba diving package called resort diving package on offer if we booked it online. There were 25 of us trying to put on the neoprene suit- that’s when the fun began. But when we dived we were taken aback by the beauty of the underwater world. It was the perfect class 73 meeting.

This was my 2nd adventure with Atlantis Water sports. We were a group of 5 family members in total. The guide was very enthusiastic and gave us a lot of information about the many sights we past on our way to the Grande Island. pretty The epic point of the adventure came when we came across a school of beautiful exotic fish that came up really close to us, I forgot the name  It’s was truly magical! It was the most breathtaking and exhilarating moment of my life so far. An experience of a lifetime!!!

Vine a la India en busca de paz interior y me llevo mucho mas que eso. Soy una mujer completamente nueva gracias a las cosas que vivencie. Jamás pensé que iba a hacer scuba diving pero me anime y no me arrepiento, es mas lamento no haberlo hecho antes. Atlantis Watersports organizo todo de maravilla y me cuidaron como si fuera una joya.

Company meeting in Goa, my boss is from England and he wanted to take his family for a fun day out. It was my turn to organize that for him and I will never thank Atlantis Watersports enough for everything they have done to help me pull this through. My boss, his wife and two teenage boys were on cloud nine because they could spend the day in a heavenly paradise, resort diving and relaxing in the sandy beaches of Goa. I am your number 1 fan FOREVER now.
