Elephant beach havelock island

SNORKELING @ ELEPHANT BEACH

  • Rate 950/person. We will be taken in a boat ride for around 20 mins and will get around 2-3 hours in the Elephant beach havelock island
  • Around 5 mins (till we see few fishes around) Snorkeling is complimentary.
  • After that for more snorkeling (around 20 mins), we have to pay 1000/person. This was really worth the experience.

Lots of colorful fishes surrounded us and it was really amazing experience. We could touch few of them. Many of them kissed us and passed by.

Did you liked the video? Gift yourself a Gopro Hero8 black and capture your great moments. waterproof without a housing to 10 m and up for any adventure

TIP : Do Snorkeling first and then Scuba. Snorkeling is like a trailer of Scuba diving with a different experience.

If you are doing Scuba, sea walk will not excite you that much, as it is just walking under the sea with an oxygen helmet.In Scuba you will get much more flexible movements and visibility.

Even considering the fact that we visited during week days, it was quite crowded. So please expect the same.

While going to boat, you can keep the park the 2 wheeler in parking area and also keep the helmets. In Andaman no one steals the helmet.

  • This is the most exciting and never miss part of Andaman trip. It was an amazing experience to explore under water world with lots of corals and varieties of fishes all around.
  • We did beginner scuba dive in Havelock Island though Dive India.
    We could see nice corals, Nemo fish and more varieties of fishes. Don’t forget to get a pen drive to copy the photos & Videos.
  • You can consider diving in Neil also if you have time. From few people i heard Neil has less explored corals compared to Havelock.

What are the different types/levels of Scuba diving in Andaman?? Which Scuba Dive to Choose in Andaman?? Which Scuba Dive in Andaman is better : Beginner Dive, PADI certification shore dive or PADI certification Boat Dive ??

  • Option 1: Try dive at Havelock island: around INR 5000 per person
    • Location:  Nemo Reef, Beach no 2, Havelock
    • 25 mins dive from shore + 15 mins training in the ocean
    • Depth of dive: Up to 7 mts/ 20 feet
    • Includes all gear, plus free videos and photos of your dive
    • I felt this would be ideal for first timers. As some might not feel comfortable and would stop in the beginning itself. So why to waste money. Get a feel of it and if you want to dive again the same day, it can be done in a charge around 2000 I guess.
  • Option 2: PADI Shore DSD at Havelock island
    • Location: Nemo Reef, Beach no 2, Havelock
    • 45 mins dive from shore + 15-20 mins training in the ocean
    • Depth of dive: Up to 7 mts/ 20 feet
    • Includes all gear, PADI certification and log book, free videos and photos of your dive
    • This would be good for the ones who already dived and would like to stay under water for more time.
  • Option 3: PADI Boat DSD at Havelock island
    • Location: Boat will depart from Govind Nagar Beach
    • 45 mins dive from boat + 15-20 mins training in the ocean
    • 20 min boat ride to dive spot
    • Depth of dive: Up to 12 mts/ 40 feet
    • Includes all gear, PADI certification and log book, free videos and photos of your dive
    • In this option, you will be taken in a boat for 20 mins ride and will be diving in the middle of sea. Compared to shore dive, here we are expected to see more untouched corals and will get more depth. It is on costlier side for the same reason.
  • You can book any of this according to your choice. As per the info
    beginner dive was 25 mins under water, 7 to 20 meter depth and the max depth will be decided by the instructor according to comfort of the diver.
  • I was very comfortable & went till the down bottom. As per the instructors it was about 7-8 meter depth and I felt it was about 15 mins under water. Regarding the timings, if you have a water proof watch you can be sure to get 25 mins(provided you are comfortable).
  • Swimming knowledge is not required for Beginner dive. If you are comfortable swimming under water, you will be more comfortable. We have to take breath in and breath out via mouth. Once we go deep, there will be little tension n pain in ears, but by holding nose and ejecting air through ears (Instructors will help you with all techniques before diving) you will be fine and comfortable in some time.
