Superawesome experience!

Is was indeed an amazing experience underwater. The pre-dive training and care (, breakfast precautionary tablet, snacks) taken by Temple Adventures is definitely noteworthy. I thank the entire team!
P.s Akhil clicks good pics underwater. I was the unfortunate.

[Insert appropriate for work/positive/non sarcastic/headline here.]

What can I say about Temple? I mean it, really, what am I allowed to say? Is this a family friendly site or are people OK with the truth? Reading through the reviews, I should probably keep this to PG rated. That's unfortunately, since that means I can't talk about the REDACTED or about how much fun it was to REDACTED. I definitely can't talk about REDACTED because I'm sure that would get someone into trouble.

I can say that I would definitely dive with this crew again. I came for a weekend trip a few months back and I returned four or five more times (working in Chennai for 3 mo). I got to be part of discovering two new sites (it's Cabbage Patch, Jonah, deal with it) and learned more in the last twenty dives than I have since my open water. Not only am I a better diver now, I know a lot more about what it means to work at a dive shop (someday you'll get that "real job" Julian... but maybe after you finally get your REDACTED fixed).

It's been a truly great experience and any time I'm in India, I'll be stopping in again. If any of the crew makes it state side, hopefully they'll let me know (even you, Akhil... or especially you...).

Go Scuby dooby doo!!!

From fear to excitement, it was a switch of gear for sure! Wonderfully organised , great team, sufficient equipments, they have it all.. Me and my husband dived with Temple Adv 18-19th Apr as a part of DSD Program (Discover Scuba Diving). Its a special program designed especially for the amateurs and non-swimmers, basically the kind of people who love to have a taste of variety cuisine! A briefing and pool session is to help you simulate to the actual dive! With a team of expert divers, instructors and rescuers, they make you friends with the life under water. A must visit I say, I have already been spreading the word in my circle. Its a whole new world to be explored , and it just gets better with TA. PS: Take sea sickness precautions or else the whole experience wud turn into a nightmare.

Amazing fun

I just finished my Emergency First Response and Rescue Diver course with Temple Adventures and I got to say it was awesome. I had the best time learning new skills and how to become a better diver. The entire team was not only professional in their approach to teaching, but made the learning and the exercises great fun.
The team is a big family and welcomed me with open arms. I actually had a hard time leaving the dive centre and go back to reality.
The diving was beautiful. We had a 30 m visibility in crystal clear water at Aravinds Wall and super cool fish life. Big fish as well as macro sea life. Then we went to the Temple Reef, an artificially created reef, which was loaded with schools of all kinds of fish, many large gropers and tiny beautiful nudi branches.

I recommend Temple Adventures to everyone interested in a fun activity!

All round fun

Diving is bliss. The crew at Temple Adventures makes it super fun too. I was lucky to have Rob, Jonah and Julien as my instructors. They made learning fun. I would know, I am an instructor myself though not as experienced as most of the staff at temple Adventures. Each day was a new adventure. The office staff is extremely polite and very well informed, they make life a lot easier too. Thank you Sheela, Sooshma, Jenny, Luke and Samuel. Ravi, the Captain of the boat assigned to us was a thorough seaman and extremely professional. I mist make a mention of the Tec Team of Rob Scammel, Jonas Samuelsson and my fellow student divers Donarun Das(who by the way also does a great job with the media at Temple) and Niko Perosa. The overall experience at Temple Adventures was awesome. The sheer professionalism and absolute passion displayed by everyone makes them a great team and someone i would not hesitate recommending and of course they have a repeat customer in me. Cheers

Scuba diving is more fun with Temple Adventures

Ever since I first dived with Temple Adventures, the fun has never really stopped. Be it above the sea or below it, you can always count on them to make the day an awesome one for you. With the recent dive to 50m on a site which was never visited by anyone, (they even let us choose the name of the site), I feel more connected to the place.

With a wide range of dive sites all around the eastern coast, from beautiful artificial reefs to diving under the pier, and from quarries to the continental shelf of mainland India, you can have a feel for any type of diving you want to do.

Scuba diving in Pondicherry.

Temple Adventures helped create a thrilling experience. Scuba diving for my first time I was scared of plunging into the ocean yet instructors were so kind and friendly I wasn't scared at all, and they're training prepped me up just right. I really recommend going to them.

A safe, professional diving centre

All the family were impressed by the seriousness of the operation in Pondicherry, my 11 year old passed the PADI Junior Open Water certification and very much enjoyed the experience. Having done the PADI certification years ago my husband and I did a refresher and found ourselves completely in phase.
