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.

This is the place where you look at the scene that is printed at the back of 20 INR note. Well, if you ask me, I would say there is no point in going there, coz you cant see that unless you're away from it.

The island and the light house is at the backside of INR 20, and hence calls for a visit. However, there is nothing super about the island itself as the island is restricted and you cannot roam around. The light house is the only place where people can go to with nominal tickets. You get the ferry tickets for INR... More

The ferry service at Water Sports Complex/Aberdeen Jetty takes you to North Bay starting in the morning and then around 3-6 times a day. They charge 500 rupees for the round trip. During the trip the tour guy on the ferry will tell you about the history of andamans, etc, then he will tell you about options for Glass boat... More
