Welcome to URBAN NOMAD - your PADI Dive Resort and one-stop destination for diving, kayaking, fishing, and many other water sports adventures for the whole family.
With a flag store in Pondicherry's romantic French heritage town and several outlets in Resorts along the coast, we offer beginners, certified divers, and course students alike the possibility to do pool training and activities comfortably from their resort, before exploring the ocean with us. Our team of passionate ocean lovers comes from across the world and includes PADI dive professionals of all levels - carefully chosen for their experience and responsible diving practices, making sure you get the most out of every adventure you do with us.
The southern East Coast of India is always worth an exploration - no matter if you are a beginner or an experienced pro: The many deep dive sights, wrecks, natural and artificial reefs make it an unforgettable experience for everyone. For beginners, groups, and families we offer many other watersports or even multi-adventure packages to keep everyone engaged.
Tech divers, as well as professionals, love the possibilities to train for the many PADI specialties we can offer here, and if you're lucky, you can meet our whale sharks that visit between June and October, see dolphins or even fin whales. In any case, we'll introduce you to many other sea creatures, be it the majestic Malabar grouper, schools of barracudas, beautiful fan coral gardens, or tiny nudibranchs.
As a certified diver and as a member of our Club you can join us on discounted AWARE activities, get special rates on theme dives (like our Women's Dive Day for example), grab a cool deal on dive gear, and benefit from many other advantages.
So, have a look at our offers and packages, become an URBAN NOMAD ... and let's explore together!
