Andaman Bubbles is a friendly dive centre located at Beach #5, at the Wild Orchid Resort on Havelock Island in the Andamans. We opened our doors in December 2008. With a strong emphasis placed on safety, we offer professional quality service, but in a flexible relaxed manner. We here at Andaman Bubbles have a strong passion for the island and the sea that surrounds it. We look forward to sharing that passion with you, not just as our customers but also as our friends.
We follow the Professional Association of Diving Instructors (PADI) as well as Scuba Schools International (SSI) general standards and recommendations. We offer almost all SSI and PADI courses from recreational diving to professional diving.
We have new and well-maintained equipment and have taken the step to have equipment quality above that of standard rental gear you find with most dive centers. We hope this will offer our customers as well as experienced divers the opportunity to consider if they really need to bring their own equipment. We stock Apeks fully balanced regulators, Seaquest BCDs, open heel fins, shoes, masks and a selection of short/long wetsuits. Also Suunto dive computers/compasses and digital cameras are available for rent. We also have 72, 12-liter cylinders with yoke valve and 10 with din inserts for customers with Din first stage. For those that tend to be a bit heavy on air, we have four 15 liter cylinders and for the smaller divers four 10 liter cylinders. We have 2 German built L&W 280 and an L&W 300 Nautic compressor with digital maintenance system to prevent any contamination in the cylinders. We also have Nitrox Membrane System.
"Wave Dancer" is the only dive boat of its kind on the island. Built in Phuket, Thailand, she is a 36 foot fiber glass speed boat with 2 x 250 HP Yamaha 4 stroke engines and can carry upto 20 guests. Her maximum speed is 30 Knots. With lovely interiors and a nice open area in the forward part of the boat for sun bathing. We organize dive trips and safari’s subject to a minimum number of guests using this boat due to its speed and comfort.
TBA is a locally made fiberglass boat that can hold up to eight divers, she is currently under modification. This will be used primary for local dive sites and in good calm sea more far out dive locations.
"SS Jet" is an Indonesian wooden boat which has recently joined our fleet she travels between 8 – 10 knots and is about 36 feet in length. She is a comfortable boat with enough space for racks and covered seating. She can hold between 15 – 18 divers.
Rock N Rolla: a traditional Burmese boat which has been the popular mode of ocean transport in the Andamans since they are very durable and parts are easy to obtain. We have converted her so that she is suitable for diving.
