Gypsy Divers is the brainchild of Poonam Darne, a PADI Master Scuba Diver Trainer and SSI Advanced Open Water Instructor, who has been diving for over ten years now. Once a successful businesswoman, Poonam discovered scuba while holidaying in Andaman in 2007 which changed her life and sent her packing for Thailand to master the skill. She learnt, taught and explored in Phuket, Koh Tao Island, Gili Islands and of course, Havelock Island. "The first time I dived, I loved it bits. I was so hooked to diving that I spent every day doing it at the Andamans. By the end of the holidays I was sure diving was my true calling", recalls Poonam. Oceanographer Jacques Yves Cousteau has said that, ‘The sea, once it casts its spell, holds one in its net of wonder'. This maxim came true for Poonam. Her first undersea experience was magical and liberating. She was virtually mesmerized by the vibrant undersea marine life and has remained under its spell since! She saw whales, sharks, manta rays, turtles, and dolphins as authentic deep- diving gypsies, who explored the seven seas with uninhibited enthusiasm. She noticed that, like gypsies they lived life, on their own terms. And that’s how the idea of Gypsy Divers germinated.
