Responsible Tourism Practice 

Aqua Nomads is conscious of its interactions with the underwater ecosystem. That’s why, our staff is active when it comes to beach clean-ups as well as underwater clean-ups. They are also engaged in creating awareness among people about disposing of waste responsibly in the Andaman Islands. The trash that is not disposed of in dustbins ultimately reaches the oceans and pollutes them, thereby harming marine life. That is why it is recommended to separate the trash while getting rid of it because there are different procedures for recycling and reusing different materials.

At all important locations shore dive sites, you will see trash cans. In case you cannot find a bin while scuba diving and you see trash lying around, kindly hand it over or point it out to your diving instructor so that they can take care of it.

Beyond scuba diving

Along with scuba diving, Aqua Nomads can help you with other adventurous water activities as well. Havelock Island is the hub of water activities such as snorkeling, kayaking, game fishing, sunset cruises, etc. Our staff can also arrange ferry tickets and local transportation as per your convenience and preference for your hassle-free vacation in the Andamans.

What people are saying?

“Havelock Island was the highlight of my trip and my sole aim to include it in my Andamans itinerary was to do scuba diving. I booked my Professional Association of Diving Instructors (PADI) Scuba Diver course with Aqua Nomads. It was my fourth dive overall and the whole experience was magical! I have also got my PADI Scuba Diver Card and now, I am qualified to dive with a PADI professional to 12 meters (40 feet). If you are also a water baby, then book your dive with Aqua Nomads.”

“There are several local dive shops available in Havelock Island that offer scuba diving at comparatively lower prices, but you should book your slot with someone more reliable. That’s why I trusted Aqua Nomads, which is a 5-star PADI center. It offers single-day Discover SCUBA experiences, dive instructor courses, and technical education, including side mount diving.”

Faqs

  • Question 1: Do I need to bring my own scuba gear?

    Answer: No, the dive shop will provide you with all the required scuba gear.

  • Question 3: Can non-swimmers try their hand at snorkelling in the Andaman and Nicobar Islands?

    Answer: Yes, snorkeling is safe for you even if you don’t know swimming. An instructor will be there with you with whom you will be learning the basics. Anyone can go for this enthralling activity when in the Andamans.

  • Question 4: What gear do I need for snorkelling?

    Answer: Mask, snorkel, and fins are the essentials for this exciting water activity. You can bring your own gear for a proper and comfortable fit. However, you can take these on rent as well. If you want to capture the serendipitous moments of your underwater adventure, then don’t forget to bring an underwater camera. Also, if you decide to stay in the water for a longer period of time, then you will need to wear a wet suit.

  • Question 5: What are the advantages of boat-based vs. land-based snorkelling in the Andamans?

    Answer: This typically depends on the area. There are some places that have a reef right off the beach. So you don’t have to travel far to reach the snorkel site. A land-based trip will suffice in case you only want to get to a specific snorkeling location. However, there are many areas that are so spread out and vast that you will be requiring a boat to reach there.

  • Question 6: When should one go snorkelling in the Andaman Islands?

    Answer: The Andaman Islands is a year-round destination. However, the winter season, i.e., from November to May, is considered the best time to go snorkeling. It is the ideal time for sightseeing and indulging in exciting water sports as the temperature during these months ranges between 20 and 30 degrees Celsius.
