I have already stated it umpteen times that Andaman and Nicobar Islands is a bliss on land as well as underwater. While Neil Island stays my favorite when I talk about snorkeling as the island is rich in under water corals, there is another place that gives it strong competition. That place is North Bay Island.

The best part of this island has to be the light house which is like 10min walk from the bottom..The view from the top of the lighthouse is great..Other attractions are scuba diving snorkelling glass boat rides...Overall its a good experience.

We can much explore in this island instead of seeing old unused light house(the same light house printed backside on our Rs. 20/- currency notes) and sea walk(u need to wear oxygen helmet and get into the sea bed so explore live corals costs around Rs.3000/- per person)

After jolly buoy you can consider it for a nice place to snorkel. You need to take care of sea archin's poisonous spikes while going underwater . Try to spend more time here than viper and ross and its worth doing the same. You will find some water sports activities as well.

Amazing experience. So far saw only in aquariums. But going down and being with the colorful fish and corals is an out of the world experience.

If you have no blood pressure and heart problems, go for scuba diving but always obey your instructor. It is really amazing and adventurous just like what we see in the National Geography channel. Some corals are really beautiful.

The bay has a crystal clear water as it also provides SCUBA dive and snorkling. There are boats going to from Aberdeen Bay. Ask for Ranjan Roy for SCUBA options. The price is great Rs.4000/- for a single pax. Ask for the instructor Mr. Niranjan (Great guy), builds your confidence. ( Good option for first timers). A big no no... More
