The Andaman Islands are known for their coral reefs and crystal clear waters. So far, about 200 varieties of corals have been documented from the Andaman & Nicobar Islands, which is the highest in this part of the world. There are fringing reefs scattered throughout the territory and there are also many luxuriant coral banks in the adjoining open sea. Bright tropical fishes in many shapes and forms along with a vast number of amazing marine creatures are abundant in and around these coral reefs. Just to name a few: butterfly fishes, clown/damsel/anemone fishes, scorpion fishes, wrasses, parrot fishes, surgeon fishes and sea horses. Snorkelling trips are organized on request. We provide packed lunch, snorkel, fins & masks.
The seas around the Andaman Islands are some of the worlds most unspoiled. Marine life is abundant and many species of fish and coral are unique to the area. From the depths of Johnny’s Gorge to the gardens of Minerva ledge, there is something here for everyone. But what makes the Andamans so special is not only the amazing treasures you’ll find with in her. The Andamans have managed to escape the mass amount of divers you’ll find at other dive locations. Here diver impact is minimal and you’ll always see more fish than divers. Whether you are a certified diver or are interested in discovering the underwater world, we have it all. We offer daily fun diving as well as PADI certification courses and one day discover scuba experiences.

In the Andaman's, one does not have to be a "serious" fisherman, you do not need to be very experienced... there is a lure and there are the fish...catching fish is not rocket science. For the longest time, the island folk have used (and still do!) rusted hooks, sardines and monofilament to hook sailfish and yellow-fin tuna, they have battled these monsters by hand. For the experienced angler, the Andaman Sea provides you with great chances of hooking king mackerel, barracuda, green job fish, coral trout, yellow fin tuna, giant trevally, snook, sailfish, Dorado and marlin.
