The crew is very professional and friendly- even if you're coming alone, you will find yourself surrounded by great people thanks to the positive vibes in the dive shop. The equipment it well taking care of- from the cylinders to...

I did my open water course with Barefoot Scuba last November and I was welcomed by super friendly and nice staff. They introduced me to diving in a very professional way and I enjoyed every day with them. I could clearly feel that the people working there enjoy their job and are very enthusiastic about diving. All the instructors and...

We stayed here at the end of March 2017 in 2 beachside cottages with our 3 children (aged 15,13 and 10) and would highly recommend the cottages and dive resort for families who wish to do more than sit on the beach. The dive shop offers a wide range of family friendly snorkelling and dive introductory trips / courses and...

We chose Barefoot scuba for our Padi open water courses, but we didn't stayed at the resort, so I can't tell much about the resort. The staff was friendly and everything went fine. Our instructor Avi was perfect for us...thanks buddy. Nice and funny guy, who had a lot of patience and was very professional.

Initially there were lot of hiccups and confusions, starting from the booking phase. The guy at the Barefoot office in Bangalore, Shadaan, was quite rude and it was a very unpleasant experience. However everything worked out perfectly due to the intervention of Ann, who heads the place. Instructor allotted to us was Ved, he was too good and didn't let...

We have just returned from a 6-day, 12 tank diving trip with Barefoot Scuba. My wife and I have dived all over the world (300 dives each) and Havelock is a world class dive destination. Barefoot Scuba were exceptional as well. The dive sites teem with fish, so much so that on some dives you don't know where to look....

I stayed here for a night. Got a tented room. When I saw the room I was really happy. But the disappointment started to come in later. The lights were very, very low. Low white lights, which was unpleasant for me- I couldn't even see my face in the mirror. And when I got into bed, I realized that one...
