Go Volcanic Diving in Andaman’s Barren Island

For those who are looking for an adventure to remember forever, here is something that you can try – India’s first luxury live-aboard yacht at Andaman Islands have announced the introduction of the Unique Volcanic diving at the Barren Island in the Andamans.

Barren Island is south East Asia's only active volcano. The volcano is estimated to be 1.8 million years old, and scuba diving or snorkelling here is a fantastic, unique experience. An earlier eruption here has covered almost everything underwater with a thick layer of black sand, creating an unusual magnificent underwater landscape to explore with solidified lava flow making for spectacular underwater cliffs & canyons; and tunas and sharks swimming along black walls which plunge to over 500 meters.                                                      

Visibility can exceed 50 meters and hammerhead sharks have been seen here. The contrasting vivid colors of bright fish against the jet-black walls is almost psychedelic providing a unique diving experience for all  underwater enthusiasts.

Sunil Bakshi, founder of Karina Tourism & Adventures said “Diving at an active volcano is a special & unique experience; and we are proud to pioneer this in all of South East Asia. Barren Island is really accessible only via a live-aboard, and with several trips planned to Barren Island, we are excited to open up the Andaman Islands as the world's hottest new diving destination with the Infiniti live-aboard. We already have two trips to Barren chartered & sold out, and four more are in the plan between January – April 2014.”

The Infiniti is a brand new, custom designed boat recently launched in the Andaman Islands. It is RINA certified and fully equipped for a safe and comfortable onboard stay and cruise around the islands. It features spacious air conditioned guest rooms with ensuite bathrooms, an onboard kitchen, dining area, lounges & decks with top of the line scuba equipment.

The Andaman Islands in the warm, tropical waters of the Indian Ocean are one of the world's newest diving destinations and have yet to be properly explored for diving. These islands in the Bay of Bengal of the Andaman sea are territorially a part of India, but geographically closer to Myanmar or Thailand. After a 50-year period of virtual isolation from the outside world, the Indian government has made a decision to allow limited, environmentally conscious tourism development in the islands.
