Scuba diving is a form of underwater diving in which a diver uses a self contained underwater breathing apparatus (scuba) to breathe underwater.
Netrani Island which is near Murudeshwar is well known for scuba diving. It's around 10 miles from the beach in deep Arabian Ocean. I'll take around 60 minutes to reach Netrani Island.
You'll not be landing to Netrani Island, your boat will go neat the Island only. They will put their anchor down and take you underwater.
This is amazzzzzzzzing. Underwater it's all different world, so many different fish, rocks I saw. I was loving it.
Here is some details about Netrani Island.
Netrani (also known as Pigeon Island) is a tiny island of India located in the Arabian Sea. It is off the coast of Karnataka situated approximately 10 nautical miles (19 km) from the temple town of Murudeshwara. Views from above give this island the appearance of being heart-shaped. Besides pigeons, the other inhabitants of the island are wild goats. This island has some of the best sites for scuba diving easily accessible from Goa, Mumbai or Bangalore. There are many dive shops from Goa that regularly organize diving expeditions to the island.
