The mangroves form an important part of the ecosystem in the Andaman Islands. This unique ecosystem found in the intricate mesh of mangrove roots offers a quiet, safe and secure ground for a variety of marine organisms. Acting as both a nursery as well as a breeding ground, the mangroves host a large number of life forms such as shrimps, algae, barnacles, oysters, sponges, mud lobsters and mangrove crabs to name a few.

Experience the perfect calm and the astounding silence with a kayaking trip through the mangrove treasures of Havelock Island. It is serene, picturesque and a great work out too!
