Diving in The Andaman Islands
The Andaman islands have been explored by Jaques Cousteau many years ago but have only recently become a dive destination for recreational divers, with limited cruises each year to the stunning coral reefs of this isolated location.
The islands became a union territory in 1956, and only a few are inhabited year around. The beaches are deserted, and elephants swim in the clear turquoise waters that are home to stunning reefs and coral gardens. Reef life is varied and plentiful, and dugongs frequent the seagrass of the shallow water.
