You mean which is better for diving, and by extension marine life? Andamans and specifically Havelock island, and by quite a long way!

Hi,

Absolutely no doubt - it is Andamans.....!!! Way way ahead... the archipelago of these islands is stunning, unspoiled, rich in diversity.....

Although great but Havelock is commercial, it's neighbour - Neil is also opening up with new diving sites.These two islands have more dive shops. But if you want a different dimension to diving - try Narcondam and Barren. But these would require living onboard for diving. These two small islands have no inhabitants and rather have a volcano. Narcondam is defunct.

CheerS!

Luv.

Hi Amir,

September is not good for diving as Monsoon are over but winds are still there causing showers. It kills the visibility underwater.

Also, September is still OFF SEASON for most of the islands and resorts. Thus, most of the dive shops dont operate.

CheerS!

Luv.
