Being an adventurer at heart, crossing all realms of experience has been Prahlad’s thing. Not a believer in drawing boundaries - be it an idea or physical reach, the Kakar ideology has always been to accomplish the unattainable. To follow your dreams…This drive has steered him to places wild and wonderful! With a repertoire full of rich experiences, one such trip in 1985 led him to unlock a new dimension in his life. A recce for an ad film location – trip – resulted in him convincing a reluctant French balding diving instructor , Hugues Vitry (who later became our friend, philosopher and guru of diving) to take him on his First Scuba dive. Excited and hyperventilating, he took the plunge with Hugues, and within minutes of being enthralled underwater, he noticed fluttering pages of a book, a holy Qur’an, lying on the sea bed. It almost seemed like he was destined to start a dive center, six years later in the Lakshadweep islands. Feeling the bliss of diving, his effort to take this to friends and family took shape in the form of ‘Lacadives’ – a premier scuba diving school since 1992.
Started on Kadmat Island on the sandy, pristine shores of Lakshadweep off the western coast of India, this aspiration brought together a team of world class diving instructors, under the able initiation of World Underwater Federation (CMAS). Since its inception, Lacadives has successfully participated in qualifying over 10,000 beginners and has safely played host to numerous qualified divers from all over the world.
