Ocean is Calling
We are a PADI 5 Star Dive Center located on the remote Andaman Islands of Havelock and Neil, India. The Scubalov family is made up of a bunch of ocean warriors who have each surrendered wholly to their love of the alien underwater world and its preservation. Our mission is to introduce this world to as many as we can through scuba diving and infect you with our love for it. We aspire to kindle your connection with nature and truly believe that no diver or course is ever the same. Therefore, you can trust us to keep your individualities in mind while you embark on personal, safe and incredibly enjoyable underwater adventures with us.
Hailing from the land of Chocolate, Jurgen came to India in 2004 looking to add some spice to his life. This PADI Master Scuba Diver Trainer (MSDT) and SSI Advanced Open Water Instructor (AOWI) backpacked throughout the country before docking in Havelock, where he gave birth to Scubalov. With more than 15 years’ experience and a background in engineering and economics this left brained instructor is a patient perfectionist and a great problem solver. If there is one thing Jurgen loves more than diving, it is passing on his love for diving. This master of Zen is known to possess calm as boundless as the deep ocean.
Mandira is like a wave of happiness that washes over the dive shop every day. This PADI Rescue Diver and former aerial artist has traveled extensively all over the country exploring yoga and meditation in its various forms and exudes a light-hearted vibe wherever she goes. Mamma Bear to two beautiful children and the Scubalov family, she always keeps a check on how everyone is doing. Despite her nurturing nature she is almost childlike in her wonder for the world, underwater and above it. She is Jurgen’s better half and co-conspirator in the creation of Scubalov and mother to our conservation-based arm Earthsong.

Havelock & Neil Island
We have two full-service dive centers located within the Sea Shell Resorts in Havelock and Neil Island.

All diving activities can be scheduled at both centers.
In this era of climate change and immortal plastics, it is even more important that we try to reduce our abusive impact on the earth and our fellow non-human inhabitants. Since the first step is knowledge, this is our effort to create awareness about our relationship with nature through beach clean-ups, stimulating talks from experts, nature walks, informative island hopping tours and more. Come with us on this journey of self-discovery through the fragile ecosystem of the Andaman Islands.
