Dear Scuba buddies,


People fascinated by life beneath
the Sea since they started exploring the water of our plant with scuba, Karachities have been diving and
exploring the coast of Karachi since 1962, when the water around three islands at
Clifton beach was crystal clear and divers were awarded with beautiful fauna
and flora.


KSDC (Karachi Scuba Diving Center) dedicated to protecting our
fragile ocean environment and its diversity of life through public education,
innovative projects, research, and advocacy. Organized seminars produced TV
shows, on life guarding, and safe use of beaches, ocean currents, wave’s
behaviors and topography.

“Scuba Diving Community” run and operates by independent elected body on yearly
basis with a pledge, to bring awareness among divers to respect and protect
marine life, cleaning the ocean beds, looking after the our novice Coral Reef
which desperately required our attention, if we don’t take immediate action we
may lost our heritage (Plastic bags, discarded fishing nets, and explosives are
the major killer of marine life and bring lot of damage to  Corals and associated fauna and flora, especially
air breathing animals i.e. turtles, and snacks)
