There is more to Goa than just beaches, booze, parties and great sea food – its home to some interesting diving around Grande Island and has ship wrecks to explore !!! Most dive sites in Goa are based around Grande island , a few kilometres off the coast of Goa. Nature of dive sites here are relatively shallow and the presence of rivers in Goa bringing in silt means varying visibility.

Nonetheless, diving is quite interesting here. Best part of diving in Goa – It’s in GOA. Beautiful beaches, beer, great sea food and SCUBA DIVING !!!!!
