Havelock- Heaven for Scuba divers!

Havelock is particularly famous for scuba diving. It has many scuba diving clubs/centers that offer recreational diving in small groups. Even if you know nothing about scuba, you can easily learn the basics of diving with the help of experienced trainers teaching a wide range of techniques. A large number of tourists on Andaman tour packages come to Havelock for enjoying the ultimate fun offered by scuba apart from obviously relaxing, dining, and winning. November to April is the ideal time of the year when you can enjoy the diving experience here at Havelock.

The process of diving is simple. You need to register with a diverse club, to begin with. The club will put you in an allotted timeslot with all the necessary equipment like jackets, oxygen masks, wetsuits, fins, regulators, lights, watches, etc. You will be escorted by a PADI (Professional Association of Diving Instructors) approved expert. These professionals teach you to sign conventions and other essential information regarding the whole diving process. Couples who come on the Andaman Nicobar honeymoon tour grow closer immersing in this activity together.

After you fully understand the ‘dos and don’ts of scuba diving, it’s time for heading to an amazing underwater tour. The representatives also assist you while diving, so it’s completely safe and fun. For an extra safety purpose, the maximum allowable depth for the diving program is kept at 8 – 10 meters. So how deep you can go depends upon your expertise level and how much the instructor is comfortable with you. Havelock offers clear, turquoise, warm water with rich marine biodiversity. You will observe hundreds of species of fish, seaweeds, and coral reef. This wonderful diversity is the reason why people love to come to this place again and again. You can also make this activity more memorable by bringing your digital cameras underwater and capture your moment with various types of fish and aquatic life. Therefore, I recommend you to make most of your Andaman cruise tour by coming to Havelock.

Other Exciting Activities in Havelock

1. Snorkeling

Snorkeling is also a widely pursued activity in Havelock. As opposed to scuba, snorkeling is swimming along the surface of the water while enjoying whatever is going on underwater. Snorkeling is also included in most of the Andaman and Nicobar tour packages. For that, you only need a mask (or goggles to clearly see in water), a snorkel (breathing tube) and flippers (swim fins). It is relatively easier and you can freely enter the water from a beach or rocks. You need transparent waters with no waves or currents.

2. Kayaking

Kayaking is an entertaining water sport that involves a kayak (like a canoe) with a paddle used to steer and propel forward. Andaman tour packages also offer you an opportunity of kayaking with your friends or family. Other than mesmerizing beaches, Havelock’s one-fifth of the area is covered by mangroves, thus making it an ideal place for kayaking. This amusing activity also allows you to explore the areas where you can’t go otherwise. Kayaking will help you immerse yourself in the island’s wilderness.

3. Trekking

Since only a few of Andaman’s islands are habited, the rest of them are vastly comprised of forests and hills. Thus trekking is must-do while visiting Havelock. The place is full of awesome hidden waterfalls and beautiful palm trees. Also, it is home to many exotic birds and exciting wildlife. These rare features make this island a perfect place to trek and hike. So cruise to Andaman Islands and enjoy a unique place free from hustle and bustle.

4. Beach Hopping

Andaman is full of many splendid beaches. A large number of people come here to experience the ultimate pleasure. The most famous among these beaches is Radha Nagar Beach. It lies on the southern coast of Havelock Island. It is rated as one of the best in Asia. It is absolutely fun for scuba diving and snorkeling. Another popular one is Elephant Beach where you can watch elephants swimming. You can reach this beach by boat. Vijaynagar Beach is an exceptionally attractive beach that is full of varied aquatic life and water sports. Finally, Neil Island is widely known for its awesome greenery and white sandy beaches. So all of these activities will make your Andaman cruise tour a successful expedition.
