Top 6 Water Activities in Andaman
By: Jigyasa Rathore
Due to the island’s geographical location, water activities abound in the Andaman. It is so easy to have a great time on the islands! From banana boat rides to kayaking, there is so much to do! Is swimming not your thing? Water sports can still be enjoyed here without a problem.
Here are the top 6 water sports you should try during your Andaman Tour:
1- Scuba Diving
Swimming with fish, exploring the underwater world, and meeting mermaids are dreams of every kid. Andaman is the perfect place to fulfil that childhood dream except for mermaids! Getting close to marine life and experiencing the underwater world is a highlight of Scuba Diving on the Andaman Sea.
Where to try–
Scuba diving can be enjoyed in Havelock, Neil Island, and Chidiya Tapu (Port Blair).
A minimum age of 10 is required. With the assistance of experienced instructors, even those without any swimming experience can take part in scuba diving.
2- Game Fishing
Providing you with great memories and pictures, game fishing will be a perfect sea adventure! When you are out on the ocean, feeling the waves beneath your boat, and waiting for your bait to attract some big fish, game fishing is a sport that allows you to catch some big fish and then release them back into the sea. This is a great way to learn something new on a speed boat and enjoy a fun day out!
Where to try
If you want to go game fishing, you should book a trip to Port Blair or Havelock.
It is best for those who want to spend an adventurous day on the sea, and those who like/want to learn fishing.
The popularity of kayaking is increasing in Andaman. The experience of paddling your kayak amidst mangroves and listening to the sound of water is unlike any other. The most popular kayaking excursions happen at night when one can see the water glowing with bioluminescent plankton.
Do you want to experience the thrill and fun of being on the water? Then you will row in Havelock’s backwaters after a short training session. There is nothing better than paddling a kayak through the lush green mangroves in Havelock for two hours.
Where to Try-
You can indulge in a Kayaking session at Havelock Island.
People who are seeking peace and tranquillity amidst nature.
A Seakart is a 3-seater watercraft that looks like a go-kart—built for high-speed action—and the whole purpose is to give you the sensation of self-driving and exploring the water at one’s own pace. While you are driving your Seakart, you are seated beside a certified instructor who is supervising you at all times. Seakarts are capable of 70 kmph! As the Seakart moves at this speed, the waves of the sea act as launch ramps for the boat. There’s no better way than this to enjoy the thrill of the sea.
Where to try:
You can try Sea karting at Corbyn’s Cove Beach, Port Blair.
