If you've visited Andaman Island but didn't go scuba diving, this isn't anything you should be worried about when you return home. No, we're not suggesting that doing so will make you uncool in any manner, but if you're looking for an adventure, scuba diving is a must-do while visiting Andaman Island.
Havelock Island (Swaraj Dweep) and Neil Island (Shaheed Dweep) of the Andaman and Nicobar Islands both offer scuba diving and other water activities under the supervision of professional instructors, making them one of Asia's top scuba diving destinations.
Neil Island, in comparison, is significantly quieter and offers a more serene setting because it is still relatively undiscovered by tourists. Because there are no mangroves on Neil Island, the water is bluer and clearer, making for a more enjoyable and uninterrupted diving experience.
Although diving amid water bodies may appear to be dangerous, scuba diving is a safe aquatic sport when done in the correct place, and Neil Island is unquestionably such a place. Additionally, if the underwater world fascinates you, your lack of swimming ability is no impediment.
Scuba diving at Neil Island is a one-of-a-kind experience surrounded by vibrant corals and fish. Basic driving techniques and underwater signs will be taught, as well as practiced in shallow water. Before you take a deep dive into the sea, you will be given a diving jacket, an oxygen mask, and other equipment.
If this is your first-time scuba diving, it may take some time to get ready for your first dive, but once you jump into the water in the middle of the sea, the underwater world will astound you. Despite your fears and apprehensions, you will be charmed by the underwater adventures at the start of your journey. Divers' safety is paramount in Andaman, and to ensure that no mishaps occur, all instructors and dive centers adhere to the Professional Association of Diving Instructors' general guidelines and recommendations (PADI). PADI certification is held by the instructors.
