Brace yourself for an extraordinary experience as you delve into the mangrove waters of Havelock Island. And the best way to explore this hidden gem? It's by paddling a kayak at Night.

This kayaking adventure tour of Dekho Andaman is a mixture of multiple experiences which we have elaborated below!

IMPORTANT : As per the new rule set by the Andaman Tourism Department, the Kayaking at Night in mangroves here is banned. So in order to view the Bioluminescence we are currently operating only in the early morning hours i.e. just before the Sunrise

Here the night sky meets a shimmering sea, creating a heavenly spectacle, where thousands of stars share stories of the past.

Firstly, we will provide you with a Kayak with a couple seat. Then you row it with the paddle and with each stroke of your paddle, the sea beneath you will come alive, sparkling in radiant hues of blue and green. 

The best part is that you are not only getting to see the bioluminescence, but also many other unique experiences which we have described in the below section
