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.
Sail Rock is located approximately 1km from Grande Island. This can be a challenging dive as here the water currents are strong and surges are possible. Sail Rock is a great location for more experienced divers. The dive is in the 6 to 20 meters depth range with sloping walls that make this a challenging dive. There is a wide variety of aquatic life here that include many fish and corals. This is really one of the best Scuba diving places in Goa.

Wonder full day Well spent day at the sea with fun packedadventure. All the oxygen mask straps and gears were something new and interesting. We loved the diving and the outlook. It was quite a hot day but we were chilled and really enjoyed the diving. We came to know the true Scuba diver meaning. TheAtlantis Watersportscrew were very help full and considerate.
WATER ADDICT I had snorkeled a lot and seen things but this was an intense experience. When you become yourself and the only hold is the person next you. We did scuba diving Goa. The depth was decent about 15 to 20 m but the urge to go deeper was pushing me down. The deal was good and pretty much reasonable. Even though I had to prove I can swim in the waters but its ok as many people were non swimmers “SAFETY FIRST” from Atlantis Watersports. Atlantis was a good choice.
Best day ever I am really afraid of deep waters and this was a great experience for me at scuba diving Goa. We also wanted the scuba dive quotes. I have tried it before but I got panicked. I guess the attitude and skills of the staff made me really gain the strength. I had a pool session with them and they trained us how to behave in water, Really different from my prior experience I went for a deep dive and I could keep my eyes open and see things under the water.Thankyou the staff of Atlantis watersports Goa and the crew on board.
Breathtaking Instructors were very professional and nice. We wanted to try Scuba dive at Goa. We had some refreshments and the visuals under the ocean were breath taking. With the snorkels you can see everything clearly. Was really surprised by what you see under the ocean. On the way back we did even collect some plastic out of the ocean. By the evening we did make the right choice with Atlantis watersports Calangute.
Holiday in Goa with my basketball team was just lit superb . Atlantis Sports at Goa just had the best deals and offers helping me to try out almost all the water sports. Scuba diving be my favorite and the services provided was amazing with professional trainers, we had briefing in the beginning which was truly helpful and the entire team of mine loved every bit of it.
For me now Goa is equal to scuba diving and that was the best part of my Goa trip, thanks to Atlantis Water Sports in Goa for making every necessary arrangement and giving me and my husband the best experience ever.
Did scuba diving in Calangute with the most amazing crew, more than loved my experience and I already started to miss the vibe and the place. Goa is super awesome and never miss the chance to explore water sports activity. Check out Atlantis Water Sports for economic deals and packages, plus they have well experienced instructors, special shoot out to Jafar, my favorite of the crew. They even has got scuba diving lessons.
Great varieties of sports to choose from and the prices are very cheap too. I happened to meet a staff member Mr. Jafar from Atlantis and he was good enough to guide us through what we wanted to do in Goa that would be a perfect holiday adventure. The scuba diving was what we chose. Having no idea about how it would be, by the end, we felt worth the amount and good services. – Ruben Thomas
DIP IN FUN We tried the scuba diving with Atlantis Watersports Calanguteon our holidays in goa.It was a little bit scary but exciting as it was our first attempt. The pool sessions were great and we thought it might be the same under the sea but when the unseen depths took over us we got frightened but our instructor was close by to make sure everything is safe. I had to trust his skills and it became so fun that I felt like I was a fish and I could even spot a massive turtle which was just for my eyes.
110/100 Scubadiving recommended by a colleague, planned my trip with Atlantis watersports, very friendly and professional even though it was crowded time we didn’t end up doing nothing. Atwo-hourtraining at the pool which then taken to ocean and dive with a pro. The remains of ships and the ocean life was mesmerizing. Would love to experience its again.
