We at Barefoot Scuba are driven by our mutual love for the underwater world, by the overwhelming desire to be immersed in it ourselves, by a need to share its wonderment with others and by the conviction to conserve and protect our marine resources.
We understand that, in recreational diving, enjoyment and safety are inseparable and we ensure safe and fun diving by keeping our groups small and our service personal.
At Barefoot Scuba we are dedicated to the conservation of the beautiful, fragile environs of the Andaman Islands and have embarked upon a number of conservation initiatives on Havelock Island in partnership with various Environmental NGOs.
Barefoot Scuba is a PADI 100% AWARE dive center. This means that for every course you do with us we donate a minimum of US$ 10 towards conservation efforts to Project Aware. You also receive a Project Aware Certification Card from PADI instead of the regular card. Join our Family of Aware Divers.
AWARE (Aquatic World Awareness Responsibility and Education) is a non-profit organization focusing now on two major ocean issues – Sharks in Peril and Marine Debris, or trash in our ocean. Check their website
