Your company also handled our many requests with great efficiency and our entire time in the region ran extremely smoothly.”

4Sport Fishing

The Andaman Islands have not been commercially fished much. As a result the fish life is truly incredible. As the fish in this area generally die of old age rather than being caught, they grow to a femarkable size.

Surfing

During March, April and early May, winter storms far away in the southern Indian Ocean create huge swells that that create perfect surf breaks on the west coast of the Andaman Islands
