What You Should Know More About Snorkeling in Andaman and Nicobar

  • Can one do Snorkeling on the Andaman?

    You can pursue this interest at many beaches in the Andaman. These places include Havelock Island, Jolly Buoy Island and North Bay Island. These places provide the best experience of snorkeling in not only the Andaman, but also in India. The most appealing part of this adventure activity in Andaman is that it is easily accessible in the region and has many supervisors to help you out with it and supervise you during the activity.

  • Which are the best places to do Snorkeling in the Andaman?

    Havelock Island- Beauty in itself, Havelock is the largest of the islands of Andaman. With some enormous beaches, Havelock Islands serve as ground for most of the watersports possible, including snorkeling. Along with a sea walk, one can go snorkeling in the shallow waters down the coast of the Elephant Beach. This beach has its own trek known for the beauty. You can reach the trek by taking a bus to Radhanagar. Other ways to reach this beach are ferries and high-speed motorboats from Havelock.

    Jolly Buoy Island- Things to keep in mind before we dig deep into the details of snorkeling in this no man’s land: since the island is protected for its coral reefs and oceanic grandeur, it is not open to public throughout the year. And there is rarely any population residing in this region. This though has become a pro for the snorkelers who can quietly seep the serenity of the place in and capture the spectacular view of the island as well as the corals whole snorkeling. Also, the return journey from the Jolly Buoy Island starts at around 2 in the afternoon which makes you time bound to be in this haven.

    North Bay Island- North Bay Island is one of the most profound destinations in Port Blair. The beach and therefore the snorkel diving opportunities in its fringing coral reefs are the nighest ones you may realize at Port Blair. A ferry can take you across Aberdeen Jetty and convey you back. The corals at North Bay are rather impressive and cover massive space. you're quite probably to identify several fish, a lobster, or perhaps clams on the reef. Snacks and basic meals are obtainable in some shacks on the beach.

  • When is the best time to do Snorkeling in the Andaman?

    Having a trip to Andaman is always an adventure. The tourist season at the Andaman begins in October. This goes on until June before the mighty monsoon arrives.
