Scuba diving places in Goa

We know the best.

At Atlantis, we have twenty-seven years of experience with scuba diving in Goa. It is because of these years of experience that we know the best Scuba diving places in Goa.

Suzy’s Wreck

'Suzy' is a British Vessel that sank during world war two and has become a very popular diving site. There is a lot to discover here in the shallow waters around Suzy’s wreck. This large metal ruin lies on a sandy sea bed. The wreck attracts a  wide variety of species of fish like the snappers, stonefish, angelfish and more. This is an easy drive as the water currents are not very strong.

This is just one of our favourites!

Met Charlie at a family function not too long ago and he convinced me to try Scuba Dive videos the next time I head up North, since I live and work way down in the South of Goa. And boy! Was I not disappointed. Loved every minute of it. It’s always a thrill overcoming a fear so thanks a ton Atlantis watersports for helping me tick another item off my bucket list.

My children and grandchildren enjoyed scuba dive pictures immensely. What a great decision by Atlantis Water sports that I treat my family to Scuba Diving on my birthday! Thank you Charles for this magical experience. I was overjoyed by seeing my family so happy. Even though I couldn’t do it myself because of my many phobias my happiness lies in watching my family enjoy themselves, which they very much did.

Scuba Diver meaning is our favorite water activity but hadn’t done it in India before so thought it best to try it out in Goa and was suggested to do it through Atlantis Watersports in Goa by our Hotel guys. It was an exciting experience, though the visibility was a bit low owing to overcast conditions the previous evening. Need to blame the weather gods though as Atlantis couldn’t really control that. But yea, it was still a fun experience.

I visited Goa with my husband few years back and tried scuba diving with Atlantis Water Sports. This time I was with my nephew and the only way I could make him enjoy an experience of scuba diving and be safe at the same time is by signing up for a short dive. It’s been a few years till now, and their quality still remains, safety is mine as well as their priority and both of this has just made my nephew’s best memories

The last time I tried scuba diving, I did the long diving one. This time I still wanted to try short dive. just because Atlantis organises it so well that it is a nostalgic movement for me whenever I come to Goa. Atlantis watersports does organise many other water sport activities. They have a very affordable price and an awesome staff. Every time I go to Goa, I am making sure that I do some interesting activity with them

I had a wonderful time at Atlantis Watersports in Goa. They have an awesome staff. The executive team are well trained and have so much courtesy which I did not find much in other companies. Really great time, so much quality in what I did. Scuba diving for a short while and yet felt like I did something grand. I wish I’d try more and more activities with them

I like active rest and Goa is the best choice for me. I tried almost everything but most of all I liked scuba dive in Goa. Scuba diving’s instructors helped me to meet sea creatures, corals and other marine life that I have never seen before. It was my best holidays by Atlantis Water sports. It’s true!
