Snorkelling is a similar activity to scuba diving, with the difference being that you stay near the water's surface while snorkelling. While scuba diving, you go deep in the water with a tank filled with air that helps you breathe underwater, whereas in snorkelling, you stay near the surface with the gear helping you see, breathe, float and propel. While snorkelling, an instructor teaches you how to use the gear and even goes with you to help you explore aquatic life.


Kayaking on the unruffled waters of the Bay of Bengal is an unforgettable experience. You and your special one can take a romantic ride on the kayak while gliding through the water under a beautiful sky. Single and double-seater kayaks are easily available at Havelock for your convenience if you are on a quest to search for yourself.

The activity can be done easily with a bodyboard and is quite popular among kids as they can play in crystal clear waters.
