Action Asia - - REAL DEALS -

NEW ZEALAND CEL­E­BRATE DI­WALI WITH SOME­THING dif­fer­ent this year in the An­daman Sea. La­cadives – an In­dia-based dive op­er­a­tor – is com­bin­ing its un­der­wa­ter pho­tog­ra­phy course with an An­daman Co­ral Ecol­o­gist diver pro­gramme held in as­so­ci­a­tion with part­ner Reefwatch Ma­rine Con­ser­va­tion. This pro­gramme in­volves re­search, ed­u­ca­tion and out­reach ac­tiv­i­ties such as co­ral reef mon­i­tor­ing and beach clean-ups. The week-long trip now in­cludes two days of train­ing for guests on op­er­at­ing a cam­era un­der­wa­ter to cap­ture pro­fes­sional-level pho­tos. Up­grade your In­sta­gram and Face­book feeds, while also learn­ing to iden­tify species, mon­i­tor­ing fish stocks and col­lect­ing data on co­ral reefs to aid con­ser­va­tion. Pre-req­ui­site terms in­clude a PADI Ad­vanced Open Wa­ter qual­i­fi­ca­tion with at least 10 logged dives. The price starts from Rs46,700 (ex­clud­ing tax, air­fare and ac­com­mo­da­tion but in­clud­ing cam­era rental) and the of­fer is valid from Novem­ber 1-30.
