Havelock from our eyes!

Friends, We explored  Havelock island (Andaman & Nicobar) in our Christmas break. It’s an unique island. It has many pristine white sandy beaches. Many diving sites in surrounding islands. Let’s start with beach no 5, that’s Vijaynagar beach.

Next beach is Radhanagar beach, one of the best in Asia.

Let the waves hit your feet, and the sand be your seat. Clean and clear water can only be found at Radhanagar beach!

Last beach to explore is Elephant beach. This beach can be reached in two ways either by trekking through forest or by ferry ride. We decided trekking through dense forest. Its said that their lived approx 250 elephants in this forest , that’s why it is named as an Elephant beach.

Usually we appreciate sand art created by humans, but nature is also expert in sand art. Tiny crab unintentionally makes awesome sand art. Here are few clicks of sand art made by  crabs at sea shore.

Have u seen recent movie “Dear Zindagi”? One of our favorite dialogue while playing kabbadi with sea waves:” Her ek parents ko apne bachho ke liye achhi memories dena bahot jaruri hota hai” We modified it: “HER EK FAMILY ME ACCHI MEMORIES CREATE KARNA JARURI HOTA HAI”.  Our tours are one of the media to create good memories!!!

One of the unique things which we have explored is “Night Kayaking”. We did  night kayaking with Tanaz. kayaking website .   We did it in mangroves forest of Havelock. It’s  an amazing experience. Tanaz explains well about star gazing, how sailor use stars for direction. Have u seen movie “Life of pie”? One of the scene shows light from sea water. Similar bioluminescence  light we had seen during night kayak.  During day time some of algae absorbs sunlight & it releases at night. We can see when water movement with hand or paddles are made and also  due to  fish or boat movement. Believe me it was our magical experience. Special thanks to Tanaz .

After night kayaking, we have explored marine life. We had taken 4 day “open water dive” PADI course,  one day theory & 3 days practical. We  dived  60 feet/20 meters deep. It was amazing underwater world.  When we swim in swimming pool at that time we swim on surface. But when fish swim , it swims inside water & at different depth. Same thing we learned first & than dived in open water. We swam along sea turtle, fish like butter fly fish, bat fish, octopus, leopard shark and many more. Believe us “LIFE UNDER THE WATER IS MORE BEAUTIFUL  THAN TAKING SELFIES AT BEACH””

Have u think about what is life?  Each person has its own perception. After lot of learning from our tour, We think that everyone is enrolled in a full-time informal school called “Life”. Each day  you will have the opportunity to learn lessons. You may like the lessons or hate them, but it is designed as part of your curriculum.  Learning does not end. There is no part of life that does not contain lessons. If you are alive, there are lessons to be learned…SO JUST FACE TROUBLE, LEARN FROM OUR MISTAKES, & ENJOY YOUR LIFE…ONCE YOU KNOW ART OF LEARNING FROM LIFE,YOU WILL FALL IN LOVE WITH YOUR LIFE………….THAT’S WHY WE CALL “LOVE U ZINDAGI”.

  1. hi, listen, I’m Tanaz, the guide you came kayaking with on this night kayak tour in havelock. Are these photographs actually from the tour? because none of my other guests have ever been able to photograph the bioluminescence. so was wondering if you used a filter or some special lens or some special setting etc. Also, may i please use your photographs from this site or other nice ones that you have for promoting publicity for this tour?
    Looking fwd to hearing from you. my email id is tanaznoble@gmail.com
    # is 9933269653. do email me the details of how you managed to capture it.
    Thanks a lot.
