    Scuba Diving At Finkik Adventures

    Finkick was co-founded by Ankit Saboo and Kshitij Mittal, who wanted to share their passion for Scuba with a larger audience – but in an accessible, authentic way. Though Pune is not near an ocean, Finkick hosts scuba diving training and activities in-land via the Divisional Sports Complex Swimming Pool facility in Yerawada. Here, you can get PADI certified – a life-time validity course, which is internationally recognised and certifies you to ‘dive anywhere in the world up to 18 metres’; as well as begin your PADI Open Water Diver Course (OWDC). Before signing up for a PADI course, you can also enroll for their 2-hour 'Try A Dive' session, to get an idea of how comfortable you are in full gear, underwater. To know the prices of these sessions, make sure you get in touch with their administration.
