Enjoying 3 Wonderful Adventures with Andaman Tourism

A renowned Sufi poet had once said, “If there is paradise on earth, it is here, it is here, it is here” for Kashmir; and truly, it is hard to disagree. Though one can disagree on the fact that Kashmir is not the only paradise on earth; there are numerous other destinations across the globe that can easily claim this recognition. One among them is the Andaman Islands, which lies in the Bay of Bengal, just off the mainland of India. These islands, 325 in total, are spread over an area of approximately 6400 sq km and dotted with pristine beaches, tropical and deciduous forests, and mangroves on the coast. Natural beauty is in abundance at this place, and thus, it attracts hordes of travellers from around the world, boosting Andaman tourism each year.

The archipelago of Andaman enjoys a moderate climate across the year, with temperatures hovering between 23 and 31 degree Celsius; though, humidity levels shoot up during the summer months. The best time to explore this destination is from October to May when the weather remains ideal for sightseeing, water sports and adventure activities. This destination is connected to the rest of India by air with regular flights to Veer Savarkar International Airport in Port Blair as well as by sea with ships coming here from Vishakhapatnam, Kolkata and Chennai. If you choose to travel by flight to the Andaman, which is by far the fastest way to reach here, then do keep your cameras ready to capture some fantastic aerial shots of the archipelago as you near Port Blair.

Adventure in Abundance

 Sightseeing has always been the first choice for most tourists to this destination, but in recent years, the trend has shifted more towards adventure activities, especially among couples, who come here on Andaman honeymoon packages.

Scuba Diving

 Diving into the deep blue sea waters of the Bay of Bengal, and swimming past schools of colorful fish, meandering through coral reefs and witnessing never-seen marine life is an experience that cannot be captured in words, but only felt; and this opportunity is provided by scuba diving experts at Havelock Island and Neil Island. You should definitely try out this activity, and as some say, you will love to do it over and over again.

Sea Walking

Imagine, how would you feel like walking across the seabed and witness marine life from up close? Well, it is possible in reality at the North Bay Island in Andaman. It is quite fun to go 10 metres deep into the sea, wear astronaut-like headgears and walk casually as if in a live museum of marine creatures. If you are an adventure seeker, then you should not miss out on this activity.

Glass Bottom Boat Ride

Another interesting activity to indulge in while in the Andaman is glass bottom boat ride. The best part about this activity is that people of any age can take this boat ride. This boat ride is conducted at Coral Island in North Bay, and gives opportunity to witness the sheer brilliance of marine life without having to go inside the water or wear any diving gears.

These 3 exciting adventures with Andaman packages will not only present you never-before fun, but memories that will you cherish forever.
