Diving end of August


I would love to discover diving when I am in the Andamans at the end of August, maybe do an open water course.

There are so many companies you can go to, and I wonder whether the sites near Havelock and Neil are better than e.g. chidiya thapu or Long Island, or just really touristy?

Long Island is definitely not touristy at all. We lived on Long Island in the Middle Andamans from November 2013- April 2014, so I am not too sure about the end of August, but I believe the real monsoon season is over. They sometimes get a second wave around October. From what I heard there are no more diving courses on Long Island, but the island is definitely worth a visit If you want to get some inspiration, watch this video gallery with two underwater clips and one on land:
