Black Sea, Sunset and Photography ...
Andaman is a place of scenic beauty. People should visit there at least once in a lifetime... "The history and the beauty cannot be described, one must see & feel it by own senses..."
Must Visit for water sports especially for Scuba
Best island to visit for variety of water sports and adventure activities such as Scuba , snorkeling , kayaking , banana ride.For those who doesn't want to take much risk , there is dolphin glass boat ride , semi submarine ship and glass bottom boats where you can see the enchanting corals and marine life.
Best Beach to see the Coral Reefs
North Bay Island gives you the best view of the coral reefs. You can do snorkeling / scuba dives over here as you get the best Coral Reefs of Andaman here. We did Dolphins glass bottom boat ride which is a must do if you visit North Bay. Scuba diving is also best here but unfortunately we did not do it.
Ideal spot for sea walk
Moved from Viper Island to North Bay Island which is the most popular destination at Andaman Islands. From Viper island to North Bay Island distance is 2 km. This island is a perfect place for sea walk. We booked tickets @ Rs.2700/- per head. Actual rate for sea walk in North Bay is Rs.3200/- per person but some how our guide managed the rate. The sea walk paltoon is situated just a few metres away from the jetty. Lockers and changing rooms are available in paltoon. Before sea walk, guide explained us how to walk under water. There was handpicked by the experts for sea walk because varieties of fishes and such coral reef have found here which are not found in other islands.
Can't forget the great sceneries at North Bay Island
The 20-30 minutes boat ride from the Water Sport Complex to North Bay Island is enjoyable. North Bay Island is slightly crowded mostly in the first half of the day. The panoramic view of various islands from this spot is unimaginable.
Island for water activities
If you are not into water activities, this Island nothing to offer. And, if you have planned Water activities in Havelock like us, you can skip this visit.Can not review water activities here, but we visited the light house area and you can get some alone time with your loved one, as no one goes to the top for light house.
An Island to experience the Water Sports
Well there is not much to do at Ross Islands except everything when you have to go Snorkelling or Scuba Diving :D.1. You reach there via a speedboat ride from Rajiv Gandhi Water Sports Complex..2. The Snorkelling cost is about 300 rupees while the Scuba Diving is around 4000 for the first tym and then next tym onwards for the same day is about 1800..3. The scuba diving takes about 20 minutes and you get several photos clicked and a video made underwater too :).Overall experience is very good and a "MUST DO ATLEAST ONCE IN THIS LIFE" sort of experience ;)
