Scuba Diving.

Netrani Island is ideal place those who want to try Scuba Diving for the first time. There are well trained divers and very safe. Can be visited anytime. But it is better if you try in summer. Bright sunlight will give you clear view of underwater creatures.

Excellent place to discover scuba dive. Great for first timers. Lifetime experience. It's safe too. Best time to explore is on sunny day. As you would get better view inside water

Good site seeing place but no scuba diving

The place is three minutes journey on a motor boat from beach. You will be allowed to swim for ten minutes in the sea with safety bag tied so that you will not get immersed inside the water. The motor boat will take you around the island but you will not be allowed to get onto the island. Just to have a trip on water and swim, you can go there. For boat they charge Rs. 800 as minimum and if you go with a group of four people, then it will be affordable.

Coral Island

A beautiful island, with tons of wildlife attractions. Landing on the island is not allowed, and many a times approach even is limited. The island is under Navy control. Scuba diving off it is amazing, as it is India's only coral island.

Fun with Scuba

The island is pristine and the water is entirely blue. It is clean and the fishes are easily visible. The water sport like snorkelling was fun but I believe it is over rated. We were able to sight dolphins that simply enthralled us and made our trip worthwhile.
