Life on this planet started in water.
More than 70% of The Earth is covered with water.
Ever wondered what’s life like underneath?
How colorful, how mesmerizing, how thrilling and how diverse the existence is below the Sea?
It’s a wonderful world best experienced by visiting in person by diving into the Sea with an Oxygen cylinder, accompanied by an expert instructor and with all safety measures called Scuba Diving. Let’s become a cute guest of the underworld, meet and greet our colorful companions of this planet (Fishes and Corals).
The aquatic life, the corals and marine creatures are so captivating that a small amount of time under the Ocean will become your lifetime experience. That’s not it. We will also go for Snorkeling on the sea with life jackets which is another refreshing experience.
Along with all the above adventure, we will also visit the beautiful coastal town of Mangalore, and beach hop along the west coast. We will explore Murudeshwar town and visit the temple and the beach.
Come, let’s make memories.
