If you are eager to watch a million stars in the dark sea water of Andamans, we would suggest night kayaking that offers the unique experience of watching the rare and stunning phenomenon of bioluminescence. The tiny, speckled stars and galaxies twinkle and shine under your feet as well as overhead. Away from the shores of Havelock Island as the water glows like a million fireflies, you get transported to a fanciful world. This unique phenomenon occurs on account of the presence of phytoplankton in the water that is a specialty of this locality.

Dolphin Boat Ride

Dolphin Ride is similar to glass-bottom boat ride where the bottom of the boat is fitted with a giant tough glass for you to see the underwater marine life as the boat glides through the coral reefs slowly and steadily. The Boat is named Dolphin and is a speed boat made with Russian technology. The climax of the tour is reached when you are given a short speed ride after the coral watch. Per person cost would be around 1800 for a single ride for about half an hour. It is recommended only for those who have not been able to go for a snorkeling or scuba diving.

Scuba diving

Scuba diving is a beautiful water sport activity that mesmerizes you with the unfolding of the dark deep mysteries of the underwater world. As you dive through the coral reefs you get awed at the diversity of plants and animals and the colourful topography all around you. You can scuba even if you don’t know swimming, which is a big advantage and allows more precipitation. It is an activity for the young and old alike.
