Divers Reef Karachi, started of as an informal initiative of a group of young students of Iqra University – doctors, pro swimmers, campers, troubleshooters. Soon, it turned into a business offering snorkelling facility to the countries populace. In this photo, you can see Churna Island amidst the beautiful blue waters of the Arabian Sea off the coast of Karachi. It is a gifted marine park where you have all sorts of fishes from Dolphins, Sea urchins, Barracudas, Hound fish, Marlin, Angel fish, Turtles, Parrot fish, Sea Anemones, Jelly fish, Puffer fish and things that are just beyond the word “Beautiful”. I saw Dolphins myself twice during my trip and it was an exhilarating first-hand experience to see under-water marine life, in our own country, at such nominal cost. In this time of turmoil, these kinds of initiatives helps project the overwhelming beauty of Pakistan and specially shows the drive of our young generation who cannot be lead to despair, instead they strive to do wonders with minimal of resources and adverse conditions.
The cost of this trip was a meagre Rs.2000 (US$20) per person and they usually take gathering of 20 persons per trip. You can visit following site for more information:
