Diving at Havelock Island.
True story ! - Havelock Island provides world class diving and sometimes we feel its a pity that it isn't marketed that way. But I guess its also good in a way. Keeps the Island as India’s little secret. Around Havelock, there are multiple dive sites catering to all levels of divers. Dive sites from 10 Mts going all the way to 25 + Mts that are truly magical. To name a few.. the legendary - Johny’s Gorge, Jackson Bar and Dixon’s Pinnacles are among some of the top dive sites in Asia. Almost all dive sites are accessible within 30 mins to an hour from DIVEIndia.
Accommodation on the Island: Island Vinnie’s - TENTED Cabanas (NON A/C only)
Luxury twin sharing tents close to the beach with hammocks and an easy vibe to go with it. All the tents have individual bathrooms.
The beach, the dive centre and DIVEIndia’s in- house restaurant - Full Moon Cafe is just a hop, skip and jump away.

Last but not least…Our little secret!… we are trying to include something really special…….
BARREN ISLAND: (Advanced Fun Divers Only).
Not many people have even heard of Barren Island. Barren Island is protected territory and Asia’s only Active Volcano. So that means no fishing boats around and not even stepping on the Island. But you sure can dive around it …and you can only imagine the spectacular topography and marine life these dive sites could offer. We will not elaborate too much on these sites as you really have to see it to believe it!
But the only issue with this location is the accessibility to get there. Barren Island takes approx 4 hours by speed boat from Havelock and can be reached only if all the stars align…the boat, the crew, winds, weather, no: people on board, permissions etc etc.. But we are going to give it a shot and try our best to charter a boat to dive on one of the trip days.
