Kayak amid the Mangaroves at Night

Uncover the exquisite natural beauty of the Andaman Islands on a fun kayak ride at night. Fascinating biodiversity awaits you within this unique ecosystem of mangroves. After a briefing session near the jetty at sunset, buckle up and begin rowing in pairs towards the mangroves, armed with naturalist who are happy to share their knowledge. As the night takes hold of Havelock, absorb interesting insights on constellations while you row gently under a star-speckled sky. Aided by torchlights, as you traverse the tidal trees, expect to see colored fiddler crabs, blood clams, mudskippers, and various nocturnal birdlife. The highlight however, is the phenomenon of bioluminescence. Any movement on the water’s surface by paddle or your hand, and hundreds of tiny luminous phytoplankton light up creating a spectacle to remember!
