About Inchkeith Wreck, Havelock Island (Swaraj Dweep)

When you are in Havelock Island (Swaraj Dweep), don’t miss out on the finest scuba experience at this dive site. A wreck covered in scorpionfish, cleaner shrimp, and patches of soft corals, this diving site is quite popular among beginner divers in the Andaman Islands. SS Inchkeith was a cargo vessel that sank at the mouth of the inlet near Duncan Island in March 1955. It carried coal and timber and struck a rock. It is a sought-after dive site and has low visibility. Thus, scuba divers feel an air of mystery around the wreck. One can see the huge propellor at the stern that sits upright in 60 feet of water. Great barracuda sometimes emerge from the shadows.
