Our team was comfortable in reaching to temple adventure right from contacting them regarding booking our slot till we left (after the scuba adventure) the temple adventures office.
Theory explained regarding the scuba diving especially regarding the pressure conditions in deep sea were awesome. But I was a bit disappointed with the practice session of the same. There was a swimming pool size practice pool was in mind, but it as about 3 foot height and 5 foot deep. I believe this pool size and hygiene conditions can be greatly improved.
The transport to the deep sea (18meters deep) is good. The friendly nature of the diving masters who have assisted us to go deep into the sea was great. But I'm a bit disappointed by the quality of the water even though I'm not sure if the water quality can be any better in the surroundings of pondicherry.
We were a group of 7 people and all of us have opted for taking a photo (by paying expensive 500 rupees per person) inside the deep sea. But the photos were issued with a confidence that the deep sea pictures of the all of us were copied to the pendrive we gave (there was no consulting any of us before issuing the photos is done with any of us). Very unprofessionally the photos of 2 of us were missing in the folder copied by Temple Adventures.
It wasn't the end of my bad experience with Temple Adventures. I have raised my concern for my photos in the deep sea (along with my body description and attaching one of my recent photo). Very poor response has been received from Temple Adventures after continually bugging them to respond. And the disappointing and distressful response is that they could go back a couple of days in the photo database and couldn't retrieve my photo. And finally there was no more final response from them.
Therefore I would not recommend Temple Adventures for scuba diving to a friend.
