Fun Diving In the Andaman Islands

The aquatic underwater landscape of Andamans is incredible. Down there, it is a vibrant world of a variety of multihued big and small fish, coral gardens and submerged pinnacles. The background of tropical rainforest, volcano and Marine Park is magical too.

Andaman still remains pristine. The absence of commercial fishing has allowed an array of fish and coral to proliferate.

We take certified divers to the best Havelock sites in small batches, usually four divers and one dive leader. We can arrange for expedition trips to remote sites such as Barren Island or Invisible Banks. You can thus have access, to a large selection of sites.

Most of the sites are accessible to divers of all levels and certifications. But a few challenging ones require advanced open water certification or experience. Your safety and comfort remains our primary focus.

A day trip usually commences at 6.00 am and ends at 11.00 pm or 2.00 pm depending on the location of the site and the duration of your dive.

Here are a few pointers.

Fresh water resources in Havelock are dwindling, with increase in tourist footfalls. Conserve water by limiting the use of water for showers. Reducing laundry is another way.

Avoid use of plastics and disposables. Please do not get rid of non- biodegradable trash in the ocean. Dispose trash in a responsible manner. Plastics cause damage and death to marine life, with long lasting harmful effects.

Coral growth is very slow. Please do not touch or break them. Even a touch can destroy their protective mucous covering and render it vulnerable to attack by other organisms.

Please do not patronize businesses that operate in an eco-unfriendly manner.

Do not give sweets or gifts to local children, as it increases dependency and associates tourists to freebies. Instead, contribute to organizations and NGOs working for the island's welfare.

Do not employ anyone to take you on a tribal tour, which is prohibited.
