About the Destination:


The Andaman Islands is India's best tropical beach destination and offers its visitors some of the most amazing experiences of a tropical lifestyle. You can do a lot here in just a matter of few days, like sightseeing, water sports, birdwatching, and diving. Scuba diving in Andaman is a great way to explore life underwater from up close. This tour brings you the chance of not only seeing the marine treasure of Andaman but also how the increasing pollution and global warming has affected it all. 

Also, if you are someone who does not possess a PADI certification for diving, you can get it with this tour as an optional add-on.
