Barefoot Scuba Resort - best of Havelock

Really nice place and extremely great staff and scuba instructors. The transfers they provide to every points are extremely convenient. 

 

The beach behind the resort is extremely serene and clear.

Barefoot 5-Star PADI IDC dive centre is a well run and equipped resort. It has a large fishing boat for getting to the local dive sites and a speed boat to access the deep sites.
The resort caters for a lot of try divers and snorklers and runs OW courses taken on the big boat. For experienced divers it lays on a separate boat to the deep sites. Being an IDC it has lots of DMs and the more experienced lead the deeper dives. Most of the  sites are well out in the channels between the islands. The Andermans are the peaks of a mountain and the deep dive sites tend to be large rock pinnacles topped with coral. There is a wreck of an old ship, sunk in the 1950s. The best time to dive is February to March when the sea conditions are calm. They can venture out to the waters around the volcano on Barren Island, 100km from Havelock, where  you will see oceanic fish life. Their style of diving on the deep sites is to moor on a buoy with descent down the mooring line to around 20 to 30 metres, depending on the site. They do a bit of drift diving due to the currents. They issue sea sickness tablets before boarding the dive boat. Visibility in the conditions on the deep sites varied from 10 to 20 metres.

The staff at the resort are really professional and have great customer service skills. They will do their best to help you.
