  • Trip introduction

    This Try Dive in the Andamans is a great scuba adventure for a first-timer. You'll experience a guided scuba dive in the blue waters of the Andamans, and do not need any prior experience or swimming skills.

    This Try Dive package in the Andamans includes stops at North Bay and Ross Island, and a shore dive with an experienced instructor at North Bay. Your Try Dive is the highlight, but Ross Island is magical too.

    You'll be trained in the basic skills for about 15 minutes, and then will walk into the water with the instructor for your Try Dive. You'll spend 20-25 mins discovering the stunning underwater world. After your dive, you'll be taken to Ross Island to explore the beach, and then will return to Port Blair.

    NOTE: Photos and videos of your Try Dive are included in this package. Do carry a pen drive so you can take them home with you.

    Destination

    North Bay is one of the most popular locations for visitors to Port Blair, and has gorgeous coral reefs and white beaches to explore. You'll be able to see an array of small fish and vivid corals at shallow depths, which makes it a great location for Try Dives in the Andamans.

    Ross Island was once the headquarters of the British, before they moved to Port Blair. You'll be able to see the ruins of some of their buildings here, now taken over by banyan trees and wild shrubs.
