“The Andaman Experience!!!!”
Reviewed 31 December 2009

The Andaman & Nicobar are a group of picturesque Islands, big and small, inhabited and uninhabited, a total of 572 islands, islets and rocks lying in the South Eastern Part of the Bay of Bengal. They lie along an arc in long and narrow broken chain, approximately North-South over a distance nearly 800 kms. . It is logical to presume a former land connection form Cape Negris at South part of Burma to Achin Head (Cape Pedro) in Andalas (Sumatra). The flora and fauna of these islands, however, indicate that this land connection if it existed, should have been prior to the development of their present life form.
There is no graeter adventure than diving. Whether you are a novice, or whether you have been diving for so many years, there is always something new, fascinating or challenging about venturing into the underwater world. Your mind may be mesmerized by clouds of colourful fish, your curiosity raised by the mysterious remains of sunken ships or your creativity awakened by the art of underwater photography. Your diving interests may range from a casual pastime pursued on vacation, to a constant passion, or even a career. Diving offers something new for everyone.
Diving in Andamans is a unique lifetime experience. The coastal water surrounding theses islands is the abode of one of the richest coral reef ecosystem is the world. The specialty is that, here the coral reefs and underwater formations are undamaged by human activity. The best season for diving is from December to April.

The great Andamans Coral reefs, were one of the biggest eye catchers. And also the wild forest , tribals and marine creatures attracted me the most. I recomend it for every one who want space to breath frech air and freedom to visit Andaman and Nicobar islands.

“Untouched by man!”
Reviewed 30 April 2009

We landed at port blair only to keep our baggage at our hotel(Sinclairs) and get our jetty tix to have a flavor of snorkelling and so (in)famous glass boat rides (as you will not be able to see anything). But, sight was beautiful.
Reached North bay island..did some swimming and kept sm energy for next island-
Ross island which was half an hr by jetty. Devastated completely by Tsunami in 2004, Ross island only serves as a spot where you can see traces of British and Japanese.
Next was Viper island. which was quite dissapointing.

Cellular jail is a must visit with the light and sound show going back to the history of cruelity by Brits.

Aberdeen Bazar is the main market with nothing so special..not even the corals.

Next morning after seeing port blair-saw mill, naval museum, anthropological museum, went to catch havelock jetty..tickets must be done in advance.

What a trip..4 and a half hrs as the jetty stopped at neil island as well.Reached Havelock at 4:30 pm to gorgeous place...

Went to our resort(Silversands) and chilled at its private beach(beach no.5) and thenwent to wild orchid for dinner and drinks..lovely atmosphere.

NExt day, we went scuba diving with LACA DIVE.
Came back and rented a bike and went around the place to see radhanagar beach and enjoyed the lovely ride. We met their pet Rajan(elephant) and went to their cafe mahua..

Came back to the Market and went back to hotel.

Next day, went to kala pathhar beach and back to port blair in the evening(2 and a half hr jetty).
