Video of My PADI Certification Dive @ Lakshadweep

It’s been more than three months since I completed the PADI Open Water Certification course in scube diving in Lakshadweep.

A couple of days ago, I completed making a film on my underwater experience. I had carried an adventure cam with me (Oregon Scientific model # ATK2000). The cam captures bit low res video, but this is one tough guy!

The official specs for the camera said that the camera is ‘water resistant up to 5 meters depth’. But I took a chance with it, and it actually worked perfect for a depth more more than 16 meters! I love this gadget.

So here’s the footage of my underwater dive in the pristine Lakshadweep lagoon. The actual footage was more than 3 hours, which I have edited down to less than 12 minutes of (interesting) video.

Yippi!!! I am a Scuba Diver!

I spent the last week in Agatti.

Agatti is a small island within a bunch of coral islands called Lakshadweep, in the Arabian sea in the south of India.

It was a dream since last two decades which has finally come true. I completed a course in Scuba diving, and that, too around the beautiful corals of Lakshadweep.

The course is designed and certified by Professional Association of Diving Instructors (PADI, for short). This certificate entitles me to scuba diving anywhere in the world in a PADI dive resort.

I will post photos and detailed diving course FAQ shortly.

Currently, I am basking in the glory of my new hobby 🙂

Going for open water dive.
