The waters around Andaman have spectacular bio-diversity, and dive conditions that are ideal for an experienced diver.
Cinque Island: One of the best dive destinations on the island, with clear emerald waters and a visibility of up to 80 feet. The deep dive offers a terrific variety of marine life including back coral and sightings of sharks, and is ideal for the experienced diver.
Havelock Island: This island is located approximately four hours away from the Port Blair airport by inter-island ferry. The dive centre located on the island offers a wide range of largely unexplored dive sites rich in underwater marine life.
The nearest decompression chamber is at the Naval base in Port Blair.
Snake Island: Awesome rock faces and a spectacular dive landscape. Marine life includes trigger fish, grunts, goatfish and rays.

Corbyn's Cove Beach
Lined with palm and coconut trees, Corbyn's Cove Beach has earned its place as one of best beaches in India. Cove Beach is indeed the dream destination for an idyllic holiday. An ideal place to lounge in the sun, this beach offers the tourists an unhurried pace while on their escape to Andaman & Nicobar Islands. Located nearby the Peerless Resort and the Hornbill Nest Guest House, it provides a kaleidoscopic view of the blue water front. The quiet beach is a wonderful place to spend your vacation.
Harbour cruises provide a unique experience of cruise along the harbour in an ordinary boat leaving from Phoenix Bay Jetty at 3 pm daily except Wednesdays. Apart from the panoramic view of seven points from the sea harbour, the floating dock and Viper Island are worth visiting.
