Snorkelling at Jolly Buoy is one of the best adventurous activities one can cherish in Port Blair. Watching the beautiful and colourful corals and fishes is a delightful experience. Jolly Buoy can be reached through ferries from Wandoor, situated around 30 kilometres from Port Blair. A small round of snorkelling comprises a round trip around the corals in glass bottom boats. Snorkelling is a delightful and safe experience even for those who do not know swimming. Watching the marine life such as Sea Cucumber and Star Fishes from a close proximity and sometimes touching them is immensely pleasing.
Sea Walking offers an exquisite experience of watching the corals and fishes deep in their natural habitat. An oxygen mask is used in sea walking and an oxygen cylinder on the ship provides oxygen to it. It requires moving down deep into the water where the sea divers guide through the marvellous corals. One can also feed the fishes with his hand as numerous fishes gather around. However on moving deep under the water sea walkers sometimes experience pain in the ears. North Bay Island is the ideal place for the tourists of Port Blair to experience a wonderful sea walking.
