The entire vicinity was extremely rich with natural beauty. But the diving experience stole all the attention. There were a lot to see under water and once you are there, you will never feel to get back to the shores. But one thing, we should be careful about conserving the beauty of the marine life and stop water pollution. Or else we will end up losing this beauty.

From the dive to the island visits, gossips beside the bonfire to the snorkelling experience; everything we did on this tour was so amusing. Had great times in Malvan. Even the other water activities were very enjoyable. Guides, instructors and diving experts were very friendly and taught us some of the techniques we hardly knew before. During our stay in Malvan, we were offered the best of hospitality and treatment; thanks to the entire team for such a wonderful trip.
"very good package.... worth for the money spent... enjoyed.... scuba was also very exciting as it was my first experience... I was thrilled..... i would recommand people to opt this package.... "
Malvan is a place in Maharashtra which takes around 2.5 hours from Calangute, Goa. The bus has few pickup points from the major areas of Goa. The initial stop point was for breakfast. At Malvan, the scuba diving experience was wonderful (at least for beginners). The trainer made me comfortable with the water and made my dive a memorable one. good quality video of our dive was also provided. After that, we had water activities like jet ski, banana ride, bumper ride, and sleeping bumper. The maintenance of the beach was good enough. This tour will consume almost an entire day with traveling eating a lion's share. Booking through Thrillophilia was seamless.
