The Andamans - the very name conjures
up images of mysterious islands with dense forests, native
tribes and uncharted seas. Among divers, this region enjoys
a reputation of being one of last remaining places offering
pristine reefs and amazing fishlife and also retaining its
idyllic charm and serenity.
Until now, the Andamans have been a very remote destination
to visit - but with the islands slowly opening up, whispers
about the wonders of its underwater world are also starting
to gain volume.
This is where Island Vinnie's Tropical Cabanas and Dive Center
comes in. Based on the island of Havelock, We are a full service
dive center and resort based in the Andaman Islands, India,
and offer a total experience for the visiting diver - professional
dive operations, simple but comfortable accommodation, assistance with
travel and logistics in the Andamans and serious value for
NEW FOR 2017-2018:
We have fully re-built all our Tented Cabanas with a new double roof and better ventilation for improved natural cooling (you really do not need an aircon to sleep!) and a new toilet block. The Upgraded Huts have also been re-built with a similar improved double roof and ventilation. And the Standard Huts are also being upgraded with the same roof design. In short: all the rooms have been upgraded/rebuilt/renovated.
We also have a new modern-style cafe/dive shop in the process of being built, which should be ready by the time the season rolls around. Cake, scuba gear and board games - and air-con (for those of you who really want it!).
As tourist volumes to the Andamans increase, we are getting a lot more inquiries for 1-2n stays, as well as room-only bookings. We are primarily a dive-oriented resort, not a typical general-stay one. As such, we have made a decision to focus on what we do well - viz, cater to divers. As such, for the period between October and April, we will only take room bookings in Tented Cabanas for guests who plan to dive with us, with stay-only bookings opening up only 2 weeks prior. This applies towards Tented Cabanas & Upgraded Huts. Standard Huts remain exclusively for people doing a certification course or multi-day diving package with us.
Feel free to look around the website - it's totally free
(told you we were good value!). Drop us an e-mail
if you have any questions. We are absolutely confident that
you will not find a better value anywhere in the Andamans!
We look forward to having you stay and dive with us.
