Absolute SCUBA is the brain child of two seasoned Dive Industry professionals, Seemant Saxena and Siddharth Pujari. Between them, they share a collective experience of over 15 years in the Dive Training, Scuba Certification and Dive Travel business.

Seemant SAXENA

CMAS Instructor 2 Star (IND/X/M2/06/000008) / PADI OWSI, EANx, EFR Instructor (276218)

A former Hotelier, Seemant passionately lives and breathes life into his Scuba dreams with Absolute Scuba.

He surrendered to the calling from the Deep in 2002 when he first landed on the magical shores of the Lakshadweep Islands; a hidden world full of stunning coral reefs deep in the heart of the Arabian Sea.

Discovering diving with Lacadives, Seemant took the plunge at Bangaram & Kadmat islands and hasn’t looked back since.
Seemant Saxena

A decade of diving later, Seemant had dived, travelled and instructed extensively. His love for diving has taken him from the Lakshadweep to the Andaman Islands as well as Thailand and the shores of Goa and Netrani Island.

As part of an elite group of Instructors with both CMAS & PADI qualifications, he embodies the best philosophies from both of these legendary Federations. With over 300 incident free certifications and more than 3000 dives to his credit, Seemant integrates an informative, safety-oriented and fun approach to his diving, making him a pleasure to learn and dive with.

10 years of magical and life-altering encounters with the magnificent residents of the Oceans have only strengthened his resolve to evolve into a fish!

His credentials include:

- CMAS (World Underwater Federation) 2 Star Instructor

His passion for the Oceans along with a keen, smart-working and result-oriented mindset is what won him applaud from International SCUBA Operators, Manufacturers and even Marine Conservation Organizations.

Siddharth Pujari

He introduced ALL of the present management modules at Lacadives related to Operations, Financials, Database collection, Analytics, Marketing, Tie up’s etc. thereby taking the Firm to Higher Ground.

It all started with a stellar first dive (as always) where he rubbed noses with Dolphins, sharks and turtles on day one. Since then, he’s notched up over 350 dives, is an avid diver and understands the requirements of all levels of divers whilst planning their dive holidays. With 7 years of hard-core experience to his credit in India’s vibrant Scuba Diving industry, Siddharth is an asset to the industry and sport alike. He brings the much-required mix of urban smartness with heartfelt passion to Absolute Scuba wherein his qualities will benefit all.

A meticulous planner and a People’s person, Siddharth is at the core of all that Absolute Scuba stands for. The passion for Diving and his sensibilities in the logistics of a Dive Operation make him the perfect half to everything that is Absolute … Scuba !
