Finally. It has been a long time coming, but we are finally offering scuba diving trips in Neil, through the The Dancing Dugong Dive Center & Beach Resort.
The Dancing Dugong Dive Center offers a full array of scuba certification courses, ranging from Open Water Diver all the way to Divemaster, as well as daily fun diving activities.
Why Neil? Well, as Havelock continues to grow, we feel that the best way to for our divers to experience the pristine nature of the reefs is to spread out their diving over a larger area - that way, we can continue offering the type of diving experience that has been our hallmark since the day we started diving in the Andamans (when 4 divers was a busy day): small groups, pristine reefs, expert dive guides and best of all - no crowds on the reef.
Neil will offer exactly that - a throwback to what diving was like in the Andamans back when it was just us, a couple of local island-style boats and a large unexplored ocean. We are very excited about Neil and feel it is the future of diving in the Andamans.
Neil Island is also close to Port Blair and connected by daily ferries to both Havelock and Port Blair. In addition, having already dived some of the waters around it, we are very excited about the potential of the waters around this region, and we feel it will offer the same world-quality dive sites that make the diving in Havelock so amazing.
