Island Escapes: Kayaking Adventures in the Andamans
Cellular Jail, Radhanagar Beach 4 nights 5 days

Overview

Kayaking in the Andaman Islands has become a popular activity, drawing interest from many enthusiasts.  The kayaking routes typically wind through the mangroves, offering a serene and immersive experience. Each kayaking excursion is guided, with participants receiving brief training beforehand to familiarize themselves with paddling techniques and kayak maneuvering. Safety is paramount throughout the kayaking trip, and participants are required to wear life jackets for added security. 

The journey sets off along a sea route, leading to the mangrove point, where the adventure unfolds. An experienced guide accompanies the group, ensuring comfort and addressing any needs that may arise along the way. It’s advisable to bring refreshments to stay energized during the excursion. Children are welcome to join in the kayaking experience, with consideration given to their age and physical build. They can sit at the back of the kayak with an adult rider, but prior notification to the Experience Andamans team is necessary. Night Kayaking at Havelock Island begins at 3:30 AM, offering the chance to witness bioluminescence. However, as this is a natural phenomenon, its occurrence cannot be guaranteed.
