How does Sea Walk works?
A helmet with a transparent visor is placed on your head. A special apparatus allows normal breathing under the water. Life Guards assist in taking you underwater and accompany you throughout the walk to guarantee your maximum safety. Once there you will experience the undersea world from close and will enjoy walking on the ocean floor which feels like walking on the moon.
At which locations is Sea Walking available?
The first Sea Walk was set up at North Bay Island, we would say "We did quite a research to find this spot", a natural aquarium with varied types of fishes along with an amazing sea bed. The coral reef selected is the best you can find at North Bay Island. A stationed paltoon(anchored boat) at North Bay gives a perfect experience to first timers. Trained staff makes everything possible, netted boundaries along the paltoon makes your experience amazing, safe and comfortable. Trained divers are always around to guide you inside the water.
The second Sea Walk has been launched at Elephant Beach in Havelock Island, the reef here starts early and your ride here is fun and exciting. You will be taken on a boat to the start point of the site. You are then instructed how to walk on the sea bed and various signs are taught for easy communication inside water. Trained staff accompanies you during your walk.
