  • Trip introduction

    Get a taste of the vibrant coral reefs and exotic marine life of the Andamans on a quick itinerary. Your adventure begins with a short training session at the Govind Nagar beach. Here, a certified dive instructor will take you through basic skills like hand signals and safety protocols. When you're confident enough, you'll wade into the water towards a nearby dive site to complete one open water dive. You'll spend some time in the company of tiny fishes on the lively sea floor, coming back to the beach with an amazing underwater experience.

    This trip is perfect for travellers who are short on time, with a strict budget, without any prior swimming or scuba diving experience, but would still like to sign up for the most popular attraction of the Andaman islands.

    NOTE: Please note that for this scuba diving trip, you'll not take a boat ride to the dive site, instead opting to wade into the water from the beach to reach a dive site near the shore.

    Destination

    Your dive center is located on the popular Govind Nagar beach on Havelock Island, but you'll be diving to explore a dive site located close to the beach itself. Most dive spots near the island offer perfect diving conditions for beginners, with pleasant water temperature and little to no ocean current. The gentle water of these dive spots are home to a number of small critters and fishes, from shrimps and clownfish to sea horses and butterflyfish. The morning sun provides enough visibility in the clear and clean water of the dive spot, allowing beautiful views of the white sandy sea floor.
