Comments We recently relocated to India to work on a project and wanted to find an easy destination for diving that doesn't involve too much flying. Pondicherry seemed to be a reasonable choice as we can get there with overnight bus, which means no off-gas day is required and a quick weekend trip is possible.
Pondicherry is a former French colony and is a popular holiday destination. February is peak season and restaurants and bars were very lively.
Communications with Temple Adventure was good. They were prompt to respond and it was straightforward to reserve our spot. We were offered free nitrox. I expressed my concern regarding Trip Adviser review where the divers did not have enough bottom time because the dive guide ran out of air - Temple Adventure said they have addressed this and has policy of 70min max dive time. More on this later...
