On the bottom of the ship, I met some beautiful corals, mining the sea, fish, and other marine life. That is an incredible experience.
Being outdoor, what I want to do in Andaman will go camping, snorkeling, scuba diving in the original blue waters. I also know that I can do windsurfing and water skiing.
