Travel notes of the day
The Andaman and Nicobar Islands harbours over 2000 sq.km of coral reefs and a majority of this area fringes along islands. Thick forests, mangroves and rocky shores make access difficult in most places, this is where professional divers make a difference.
There are some awesome dive sites in Neil and Havelock teaming with marine life. Diving in this part of the world is typical Indo-Pacific diving: a mix of everything. Moderate visibility (10-15m typically, worse on bad days, 20-25m on good days) and excellent variety – ranging from lots and lots of micro to big stuff (barracudas, sharks, groupers and occasional mantas).
We work with the best dive team in the Andaman's who are aware of the topography and underwater ecosystem of the reefs and surrounding marine life.
Today is going to be a memorable day. You are going underwater in the midst of the Indian Ocean. Exploring the mystic marine world amidst its inhabitants is a special experience. Let that sync in!
Your instructor will brief you on some basic tasks and signs (while underwater) before heading out to the ocean. Once you are away from the shore en-route to a pre-selected dive site , the underwater adventure begins.
On an average day , we typically get to see mixed schools of reef fish, everything from surgeonfish, rabbitfish, parrotfish, butterflyfish, bannerfish , snappers, sweetlips queenfish and chubs, to hunting trevallies, needlefish , barracudas and much more
