Chidiya Tapu, South Andaman, Andaman and Nicobar Islands, India
We pioneered SCUBA diving in India - first in the Lakshadweep, and now we have a home base in Chidiyatapu, South Andamans - a secluded spot about 45 minutes' drive from Port Blair. Away from the usual diving crowds, we have the reefs to ourselves - our "classroom reef" is a delightful little spot called Fish Point, which also offers easy access to a secluded beach if clients want. We have a shipwreck called the Sophie Marie, and time and weather permitting, we can even take excursions to Cinque Island.
