Strike Scuba Diving Off Your Bucket List By Joining Any Of These Classes

Inspired by your friend's holiday scuba diving snaps and considering braving the waters yourself? Well, you can start with going through a PADI certified training within Bangalore (safely, inside a controlled swimming pool). Then, when you're ready, take a holiday yourself, dive deep into the ocean and explore the rich marine underwater kingdom -- A Whole New World, if you will -- and a truly Zen experience. Excited already? Check out this list of the top scuba diving institutions in the city.
