The best place for scuba diving in Andaman
The Andaman and Nicobar islands are situated in the centre of the Indian Ocean and Bay of Bengal, popular for having beautiful beaches with the best diving spots. This group of islands is a paradise to all diving enthusiasts who have a strong attraction to the mysterious marine world. That’s the reason every year thousands of Indian and international tourists gather in Andaman to enjoy scuba diving and have the best underwater experience.
Swimming underwater with SCUBA or Self Contained Underwater Breathing Apparatus is undoubtedly fun and thrilling for adventure lovers who want an experience of a lifetime. It doesn’t matter whether you are an experienced swimmer or a non-swimmer as scuba diving doesn’t need swimming competency. Now let’s learn about the best places in the Andaman and Nicobar islands for underwater thrills.
Havelock or Swaraj Dweep is the biggest attraction and one of the top places for scuba diving in the Andaman islands. This island is 50 kilometres away from Port Blair and takes 1.5-2.5 hours to reach by ferry. On this island, you can experience scuba diving and be introduced to the vibrant marine world of the Bay of Bengal and exotic underwater species like parrotfish, soft corals, dugongs, Humpbacks and schools of colourful fishes. The breathtaking coral belt surrounding this island is home to exotic marine life. Havelock has the best setting and all facilities for diving enthusiasts whether you are a novice or an expert diver.
Another popular place for scuba diving is Neil island or Shaheed Dweep which is known for its serene beauty and tranquillity. Even though Neil island is not any less than Havelock in aspects of natural beauty, this island is less crowded and quite peaceful. This beautiful island is surrounded by pristine coral reefs scattering vibrant colours. On this island, the divers can get far closer to marine life while admiring the beauty of mesmerising coral reefs. You can also participate in a bunch of other activities such as snorkelling, kayaking, jet-skiing, glass-bottom boat ride, speed boat ride, game-fishing and more. It is the best place to meet turtles, moray eels, manta rays, trevally, batfish and many other rarely noticeable species.
