Step into Pondicherry and you'll wonder if you're in India or France.

Southern India is full of seaside beauty and Puducherry is one place that can be the best place to travel if you wish to explore the inner depths of sea as compared to just playing around the beaches. The place is full of heritage sites, museums, temples and great landscape but scuba diving in Puducherry is an experience that can make your solo or family holiday an experience to withhold.

The whole adventure starts with you getting a training session in a local pool to get familiar with the scuba equipment, the sign language and the diving rules. Once you are all set with the know-how, your scuba diving adventure can start inside the sea, preferably the next day.

The vibrant coral reefs and aquatic life underwater is a scene to behold. Aquatic animals like colorful small fishes, turtles and dolphins can be seen flipping around while you get amazed at how the sea-life behaves in tandem with the humans around.

The whole experience of scuba diving is life-changing and is recommended for couples and kids (12+) alike. It’s just that you would have to shun the initial fear and be open and receptive to the whole experience.

Also, while you go for the scuba diving adventure, ensure your diving gear fits well. Clarify any doubts and ensure you understand how to use the scuba diving equipment well. If you have any qualms, make sure you stay near your scuba diving trainer.

And if you feel anything wrong underwater, do not panic, just use the correct sign language and get things straight.
