Snorkeling in Andaman is the best and most popular activity here. What makes this a popular snorkeling location that attracts several visitors every year is the coral reefs at a depth of just one meter from the surface, which is not a common phenomenon. Apart from the coral reefs, many other exotic marine species can be spotted. This experience makes this island a favorite place in Andaman.
Unlike snorkeling, swimming, and observing the underwater life from the water’s surface, sea-bottom walking is quite the opposite and involves diving to the ocean’s depths and walking around and scouring the various sea plants and fish that encircle your stride about the water. Andaman and Nicobar islands have rich aquatic life, and there are many different types of fish.

Enjoy an excursion to Baratang Island. The island has overgrown mangrove forests and rich, diversified fauna. Nearby is a Mud volcano. It is created by gases and liquids excreted by the earth’s interior. There’s no lava streaming out, but mud in a semi-solid state comes out of the volcano. Later we appreciate a boat ride through the mangrove reserves to the stunning Limestone caves to scour stalagmite and stalactite formations assembled ages ago due to the slow deposit of lime on the ground’s exterior.
