  • Trip introduction

    If you're in North Bay, Andamans, this is one adventure you can't miss! This unique glass-bottom boat lets you discover the vivid underwater world just below the surface of the blue ocean. This is a 30 minute speedboat ride that whisks you away on a smooth ride to the further coral reefs, so you'll get the best views.

    You'll attend a safety briefing session and watch a video, and then it's time to set off. You'll get comfortable seats and can enjoy the ride and the beautiful views, until you get to the coral reefs. Here, the boat stops, hovering in the water while you peer down through the glass floor of the boat to get a closer look. You'll see fish, coral, seaweed, and exotic marine creatures.

    This glass-bottom boat ride is ideal for those who don't have the time to do scuba diving or snorkelling, or those who don't want to get wet. It's an ideal adventure for families with young children or senior citizens.

    Destination

    This adventure starts conveniently from North Bay. Just a short speedboat ride away from the mainland, there are vast coral reefs that are teeming with life. Depending on the weather, you'll be heading towards Snake Island, Viper Island, North Bay Island, or Ross Island. En route, if you're lucky, you might see dolphins leaping in the water alongside the boat. And if you're really lucky, you might even see a curious turtle swimming up to investigate the glass bottom of your boat!
