Our Standalone Dive Centre – ChidiyaTapu

True to our penchant for secluded, wild places, we set up our PADI 5-Star dive center in Chidiyatapu (“Bird Island”) in 2012. A 45-minute drive from Port Blair’s Veer Savarkar International Airport (IXZ), ChidiyaTapu is a nature lover’s paradise. Stunning, dense tropical rainforests, brackish mangrove swamps, beaches and coral reefs are minutes away from our dive school. Other than SCUBA diving or snorkeling, you can hike through virgin forest, stroll along the beach, or simply lie on a hammock with a book on our lawn. In the evenings, you can take in the spectacular sunsets, some of the best in the world and watch the hues of the sky change colours right in front of your eyes. Our partner, Reefwatch Marine Conservation often conducts educational walks and discussions centered on island ecology, so you can take some lessons from the islands with you when you leave.
