Its the best thing I would suggest my traveller... Jolly Buoy Dive Club is the best you can contact on +91-9434270965, +91-9474217232. they charged Rs.3500 per person for a 45 mins dive which was quite sufficient. Pls carry your ear plugs.

North Bay island is primarily for people who are into water sports. Its popular for scuba diving, glass bottom boat ride, jet skis etc. The corals offer a beautiful view with marine life. The beach is very rocky due to the corals. This beach is certainly not for swimming.

We took a private ferry from Port Blair to North Bay Island(300/- per person). This beach had enchanting view of the neighboring islands and still water hence permitting all kinds of under-sea activities like Snorkeling, Sea Walk and Scuba diving. And yes, even when all 6 of us were great non-swimmers, we happily and successfully completed Scuba diving. We used... More

This place is for scuba divers. do some scuba earn a intro certificate, get yourself video/photo graphed. Walk up to the light house, which is a nice scenic enough 300 mtrs walk & if you are lucky enough and make friends well you can get the view from top of light house and get to know how it works.

Well we a group of 12 did our scuba at north bay beach.... No it is not an island really but a beach, part of the bigger South Andaman. My personal experience was that possibly the under water activities would have been better at Havelock or Jolly Buoy but at a higher price however they need a full day for... More
