Best Scuba diving in Andaman

Scuba Diving in Andaman is a popular pastime for tourists who want to explore the majestic underwater world. Andaman is quite famous for being home to an exquisite coral reef, and colorful schools of fish of every size and shape. Due to the absence of predatory fish near the beaches and coral reefs, it is a safe place to go scuba diving. Novices, as well as experts, can easily enjoy an underwater trip here, but they have to be certified first as well as accompanied by a guide.

There are special scuba diving centers and training institutes that offer a credible training program to those who haven’t ever been diving. A certificate is provided to the successful candidates on completion of the course, after which they can enjoy scuba diving easily. The course also offers information about emergency skills and various necessary diving practices. The best place for scuba diving in Andaman is Havelock Island, where recreational diving as well as professional diving is undertaken on a regular basis. Other spots that could be great to enjoy a bout of scuba diving include Barracuda City, Mac Point, Margherita’s Mischief, Wandoor Island and North Point in Cinque Island. Some of these spots are pretty remote, so make sure that you get all necessary gear and a guide with you from the get go. The diverse marine life and colorful corals await your arrival in Andaman, promising to show you a magical and unbelievable world.

Amit Arya Delhi

Rnvanjare's 7 days trip to Andaman

Overall experience was very good. Cabs were very safe and comfortable. All the drivers were very punctual and helpful. All the hotels were good except one at Neil island which had not room service and wifi. Only one major problem I faced all the time was communication. Because network issue was a big problem. Only some of the network card were working that only up to calling not for using internet. Local network which is working there should be informed prior before coming to such an unknown island which is a tourist place. Because some ticket booking were given on the spot there and we could not get on mobile because of network issue.
