1. Snorkeling:

Snorkelling Snorkeling In Andaman

Snorkeling is a sort of beginner version of scuba diving, where you get to go in the water without the diving part! It mainly involves floating on the surface of the water with swimming goggles that give you a look into the glistening turquoise waters. Skimming the surface, you get a bird’s eye view of the entire ocean- the fish, the corals, anemones, stingrays- it is almost like another world! Snorkeling is a common activity and can be done in Havelock Island or North Bay Island.

2. Banana Boat Rides:

Around sic people go at a time and it is extremely exciting and you are literally holding on to your life! Havelock Island is the place where you can experience banana boat rides.

A lot of times, while parasailing, you are also allowed to take dip in the refreshing, cool ocean (especially while landing). You can enthrall in parasailing at Havelock or Port Blair.

With simple equipment and no experience needed, seas walking leaves you strolling along the sandy sea bed in a clear helmet. Running into and being surrounded by fish, sting rays, anemones, sea cucumbers are all a high possibility. It is like a parallel universe, where you walk on the sea floor instead of on the land. Try out one of the most popular water activities at the Elephant Beach in Havelock.
