Scuba in Andaman and Nicobar
Posted November 28th, 2012 - 12:48 pm by from Bangalore, India (Permalink)
Hey CS, I'm planning to go to Andaman and Nicobar Island for Scuba diving in the month of Jan or Feb. Never been there so help me out if anyone had been there and can give some tips what to do and what not.

Hope CS enjoying their life. Waiting for an early response.

Hi Rachit,

As far as I know the Nicobar Islands are off limit. It rumored to be the place where India is keeping a few missiles pointed toward Pakistan!!!
The Andaman coral reef are rumored to be bleached out but I didn't get a chance to get there to check it out.

Best of Luck,
Francis

I'd be interested to know if you actually get a permit for the Nicobar Islands. As far as boats are concerned we get chased up by the navy pretty quick.
Anyway I'll PM you about diving in Eastern Indonesia.

All the best,
