Go in for glass bottom boats or snorkeling or scuba to see the underwater life. But after the tsunami much of corals are destroyed. In my opinion Havelock is a better option.

Visit this place for some serious scuba diving fun.. Pre-book and come .. There is nothing as such to see on this island apart from a light house which is almost 30 minutes away on foot.. So, you can skip this place unless you are dying to do scuba, which I was..

Spending 500Rs on ferry to go there is a waste if you have not pre-planned an activity there - scuba, snorkel, seawalk. If you have pre-booked an activity, better extract a transfer to this place from the booking agent.

The corals here are an absolute delight to see. Snorkeling, Scuba Diving, Sea Walk, Glass bottomed boat.. all allow you to enjoy the rich marine life and the colourful and different type of corals. The guides provide you info with all undersea elements and will show you all types of corals, fish and sea clamps with utmost patience and accuracy

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. North Bay Island is... More
