    Did open scuba certification with my sister, great learnings, avi, akshay and anto were the instructor, the conduct was very professional and the course was absolutely by the book, amazing dive sites and a must do for any person willing to stretch their learning boundaries.

    Stayed in the on-campus huts, which were perfect embodiment of sundar,sasta and tikau.

    Looking forward to advanced someday!

    We did Game fishing with Captain Hook’s. And the experience was beyond our imagination. To start with Ms Nafeesa is the best enterprising, soft spoken, helpful ange you wish you knew even before planning the trip.
    The whole trip is well planned and four hours flew by in no time. We were very lucky to catch two large fishes at our first fishing spot itself. Me, my husband and our three year old enjoyed the experience of holding, touching and then sending the fishes back to the sea.
    My little one got so excited that she wanted more. At next fishing destination we got a big trout. Seeing big fishes up close is magnificent.
    The staff on board taught us fishing hook with patience, which is a great experience in itself.
    We tried at few more fishing spots and instead of a fish a sea eagle got hooked. It flew later.
    The corals seen during snorkeling at Wilson island is icing on cake. I have never seen such beautiful dense varied corals even during scuba diving. It was like I was in National Geographic under sea video.

    During our return we again tried fishing at few spots and got two more fishes. One was queen fish which was held by my three year old.
    Not to mention the magnificent nature view during the whole trip.
    During the whole trip I felt mesmerised and would recommend everyone who is adventurous to definitely try same. The whole staff and the crew on board specifically ensured that we have a great experience instead of it becoming routine activity.
    The experience was worth each penny.

    While my family enjoyed their underwater experience I enjoyed the boat ride. Sitting silently on a boat in the sea , and seeing a school of blue gold fishes was a wonderful experience. The diving instructors made the whole experience fun.

    This Night kayaking has shifted from Havelok to Port Blair..Shiraz took us out on 26th feb. We started off just before sunset. After 5 minutes of training, and the instructions, we were off. Got a good look at the stars since it was a moonless night and Shiraz gave us loads of info on constellations. Then he drew out attention to the bio luminescence in the water...awesome !! Words can't describe it and the cameras can't capture it...
    It was an unbelievable experience. The peace and quiet, the experience of kayaking in the night, the stars.... And safe too... Our kayak overturned due to a mistake I did (despite Shiraz's training :))... Two of us fell into the water.. But we had life jackets, and Shiraz, and a rescue boat, and two helpers, to keep us safe.. So no worries..
    All in all an experience worth the time, money and effort..

    We saw a sky full of stars above and the near-magical luminous below in the dark waters . This was a one of a kind experience where you feel how beautiful the dark can be . Also , Kayaking too itself is a great fun filled and physical activity . The more dark it gets , the more luminous you can see. The night kayaking and the brief about the beautiful starred night sky was guided by Rajkumar , which was for a duration of approximate an hour and a half or two. He made us very comfortable with the concept of how to use the kayak in night and we had a very pleasant evening with him and his colleague. Time just flew and we wished we could have done more

    It is a must to Scuba Dive if you are visiting Andaman and are not having any health problem. Did a boat dive with an excellent team of Divers from DIVE ANDAMAN. Their chief instructor Malhar laid threadbare all the do's and dont's, which helped in increasing our confidence. Ours was a group of five and was very efficiently trained during pre dive.
    The team was highly professional and well trained. The best thing about Scuba diving is that you don't even need to learn swimming as all the time there will be a trained scuba driver guiding you (though, if you are a swimmer, it increases your confidence a bit). All you need to relearn is the art of breathing, underwater signalling and maintaining your calm when underwater. Initial descent could cause a sharp pain in the eardrums, but trained driver make you ascend and descend slowly so that the pressure on both side of eardrums is equalized and you don't suffer any pain.
    Do try boat diving as the magic of swimming amongst sea creatures is just too awesome. If you are not able to do boat dive, then at least try shore diving. DO dive, when you come to Andaman and choose dive Andaman. Highly recommended.
    Our pre trainer was a young gay from North
    Andamans and he was very good. Another diver, whose name I remember is Suraj, who has come all the way from Bihar and has mastered the art of diving.
    P.S. They took care of my younger son in the office, who, because of his age could not go for diving.

    It was our first attempt at scuba and these guys really did marvellous job. They gave proper time to train us before going in for the dive. The instructors were very patient and ironically my instructor name was also Rahul.

    Me, my wife and brother all were first timers and not good swimmers, the scuba team ensured we are safe and enjoy the beauty of under seaworld.

    The whole experience was very good and they are much recommended

    Most important thing - do not go for scuba if its raining or sun is not out, its wastage of time and money. Even if anyone suggests, don't do it as visibility will be pathetic

    Full 5 stars. The very best in Havelock Island. All of us did several snorkelling sessions with them at various spots and also trekked down to the "Sacred (Secret) Beach". The team of Devlina, Ravi and Sheetal along with their friend from the Nicobar Island are very very helpful and 100% experts in diving and conservation. They don't rush you at all and come fully prepared for the dive/snorkel/trek. I did my first dive with Ravi and he made it very very easy for me. Totally totally recommend !
