LIVE­ABOARD DIV­ING IN THE AN­DAMAN IS­LANDS Where?

Friday - - Leisure -

Hun­dreds of kilo­me­tres from the near­est main­land, the An­daman Is­lands shel­ter in the Bay of Ben­gal be­tween the In­dian penin­sula and Burma.

A live­aboard – where you stay overnight on the boat rather than go on day trips – is the best way to dis­cover this re­mote chain of is­lands. The only In­dian live­aboard reg­u­larly of­fer­ing dive trips in the An­daman Is­lands, MV In­finiti has spa­cious cab­ins and a cus­tom-de­signed dive plat­form. De­part­ing from the bustling Port Blair you’ll head out to dis­cover a hand­ful of th­ese mainly un­in­hab­ited is­lands and might even spot 70-year-old Ra­jan, one of the world’s only ‘snorkelling’ ele­phants.
