  • Trip introduction

    Experience the island life for 2 nights and three days with this delightful scuba package in Havelock Island. This package combines a Try Scuba Dive (shore dive) with photos and videos, a private dinner on the beach, and a sunset picnic at Radhanagar beach.

    Your Try Dive session begins with an instructor briefing, followed by a shore dive, to give you a taste of diving and a chance to participate in the underwater world. You'll have plenty of time to adjust to your equipment and get comfortable in the water.

    NOTE: You don't need to know how to swim for this scuba diving trip, but it is recommended that you are comfortable in the water.

    Destination

    The Andaman Sea offers one of the highest counts of fish and coral species on the planet. Your Havelock scuba diving session gives you a chance to swim alongside a mind-boggling array of fish and a profusion of healthy, colourful coral. Havelock Island itself is an idyllic paradise with white sand beaches fringed with coconut groves, and blue, blue water with high visibility.

    You'll be staying on Beach 3, in large and comfortable Swiss-style tented cabanas, built on permanent plinths. These cabanas are full of light, have excellent ventilation, and have attached washrooms and a balcony with chairs. You'll be only about 20 steps from the beach, in the midst of a coconut grove. Add all this to the peace and tranquility of Havelock, the swaying palms, the white sand and the blue ocean, and you have an experience that you'll never forget.

You'll get your first sight of the blue water as you take the ferry from Port Blair to Havelock, but this is nothing compared to what you'll see during your scuba diving experience. You'll arrive at Havelock and check in to your tented cabana. Your day is yours to use as you please. Go for a swim in the blue ocean, or relax and enjoy this island paradise. You can decide whether you want to head for the sunset picnic or choose the private beach dinner tonight. Overnight in tented cabanas.
