Many sites are still undiscovered and you might be lucky to see a place never dived before. Some highlights include Dixon’s Pinnacle, walls and channels off Havelock Island, and various manta ray cleaning stations around Barren Island.
The diving season usually starts in October or November and extends until May.
Water temperature at the Andaman Islands is tropical, ranging from 80-84˚F (27-29˚C).
Some sites experience currents including down currents and some sites are mostly calm with predictable drifts.
