Best Snorkeling Tours in Port Blair

Port Blair is the capital of the Andaman & Nicobar islands, and is famous for its white sand beaches and blue ocean. The islands attract both Indian and foreign tourists alike, who stay here from a few days to a few months, basking in the sun and going for activities like snorkeling, scuba diving, swimming etc. Of all the activities, snorkeling is very popular here because of the clear waters of the Bay of Bengal and the marine life that’s around these islands in abundance. While tourists also like to go for glass bottom boat to see the marine life, snorkeling lets you swim right to these and have a very unique experience.

 

Snorkeling is conducted on the Elephant Beach on the Havelock Islands, where you will find corals in abundance. You will be equipped with a snorkel and a diving mask, which are essential to go snorkeling. The entire activity lasts for about thirty minutes. You will be briefed by the professional instructor before your dive, and you will learn about the safety measures necessary for the snorkeling activity. See beautiful corals and interesting marine life the way you have never seen before.

 

Some other activities you can do on the Andaman & Nicobar islands apart from snorkeling are scuba diving and exploring sunken ships off the coast, learning to dive, going for Cinque island excursion, take a fishing tour to Chidiyatapu, which is located about twenty-five kilometres from the city of Port Blair and you will need a boat ride to reach here.

A complete package to cover the best parts of such a beautiful island at a reasonable price. Ours was a honeymoon trip and both of us had a great time. The guide with us was really helpful and we did not have to face any problems during the whole trip. There are good hotels also at all places where you can have good food from. The stay arranged by them was also good.

We have covered a lot of islands and each one of them gave us a bag full of good memories. Such a photographic place. I have a huge album with only Andaman pictures now. Neil Island is quite different and the sunset views from the different beaches were different. Each day was becoming so special to me as each day has something different from the previous day. I had my family with me and we went during the summer time so the heat was at times scorching but the breeze from the oceans all the time did not make us feel tired. Also, it should be mentioned that the hotels and resorts we have stayed offered us a good service and a pleasant view of the ocean was in front of our eyes every morning. The well-maintained beaches and the crystal clear water have amused us so much. I am looking forward to have similar package with much more adventurous activities in it from Thrillophilia.

I am recollecting all the memories I had from Andamans now. This six day package was really awesome and I could explore all the major attractions the island has within it. The snorkelling session at Elephant Beach was something I cannot forget. Though I have tried adventurous activities couple of time before, this one got attached to my heart. May be because of the colourful sights I found through the crystal clear water. Along with this, I should comment on the stay and the food they have provided me. Though I am not very strict when it comes to food and stay, I liked almost all the hotels. In short, I would say that I thoroughly enjoyed the package.

I came to know about this tour package through my friends who have already tried other similar packages from Thrillophilia. I have decided to go to Andamans alone as I am a freelancer. After visiting Andamans, I became extremely happy and from the bottom of my heart I suggest my friends to visit Andamans once in your lifetime. The moments you can create would never fade away. As a solo woman traveller, I had a lot of questions in my mind. But the guides, the people I met during the tour, the hotel people etc helped me a lot. The precious blue water always cuddled by the green surroundings remains in my heart, so clear and intact.

I liked the swimming activity i have done at Corbyn’s Cove Beach. It is such a beautiful place with rich greenery around. The coconut fringed shore was adding charm to the entire location. The cellular jail was a surprise for me as well as the light and sound show. People from different parts of the world come over here to see all those remainings. A great deal from Thrillophilia for families and also for solo travellers.
