  • Trip introduction

    This night kayaking adventure is one of the most magical experiences you'll ever have. You'll head out into the sea just after sunset and paddle over an ocean that glows and sparkles with bioluminescence. With every swish of your paddle, the sea is lit up as if the stars themselves have fallen into the water.

    All around you, the sea is calm and the lights from the shore are not too far, but you'll feel like you're in a different world. It only lasts for 3 hours, but this adventure is one that you will remember all your life.

    IMPORTANT:

    For this kayaking trip in Havelock, but you should not have any fear of the dark or of water.

    The departure time for this trip changes based on the tide and the changing time of the sunset. Please call your operator one day before to confirm the start of your kayaking session.

    Please note that you finish your kayaking trip by 20:00 hrs, and it will be very difficult to get transport back to your hotel. It is recommended that you rent a Scooty or moped at Havelock.

    Destination

    Of all the natural wonders of the world, bioluminescence is one of the most stunning. This unearthly blue-tinted glow is caused by phytoplankton, tiny organisms, that move with the water. Havelock Island in the Andamans is less crowded than Port Blair and therefore has less light pollution from the shore. You'll be able to see the best bioluminescence here when the moon is at its lowest phase.

    Destination highlights

    • Witness the rare phenomenon of bioluminescence.
    • Head out for a thrilling night kayaking trip in Havelock.
    • Do some star-gazing from your kayak as you bob in the sea.
