Imagine having your feet curled up in sand until dawn, and the sun forming perfect shades in the sky at dusk
Imagine the waves that you would be within,
as you navigate your way in waters while Scuba Diving
Imagine just that
4 days of
sun. sand. scuba.
Date: 25th to 27th December
Scuba diving is a form of underwater diving in which a diver uses a self-contained underwater breathing apparatus to breathe underwater. Unlike other modes of diving, which rely either on breath-hold or on air pumped from the surface, scuba divers carry their own source of breathing gas, usually compressed air, allowing them greater freedom of movement.

Sindhudurg Fort :
This fort was constructed by Shri Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj, today also we can see his foot and palm print in fort. The construction was done under the supervision of Hiroji Indulkar, in the year 1656.Over 4000 mounds of iron were used in the casting and foundation stones were firmly laid down. The sea fort is spread over 48 acres with a 3 km long rampart, and walls that are 30 feet (9.1 m) high and 12 feet (3.7 m) thick. The massive walls were designed to serve as a deterrent to approaching enemies and to the waves and tides of the Arabian Sea.
Tarkarli Beach :
Tarkarli is a narrow stretch of beach with pristine waters, located at the convergence of the Karli River and the Arabian Sea. It is 546km away from Mumbai, 6km south of Malvan, on the west coast of India. This place has gained prominence because of its transparently clear seas, where on a fairly sunny day, one can see the sea- bed up to a depth of 20 feet. This beach can be rightly called as ‘Queen Beach’ of Sindhudurg.
