Andamans Surf Tour
Here is a little information about our Andaman Surf Tour Package.
Andamans, dubbed "The land of the head-hunters" by Marco Polo, who was the first western traveler to visit this chain of 572 islands, now commonly called as Andaman and Nicobar Islands. With only 36 of the 239, Andaman Islands inhabited, the dense tropical forests support an exotic, fragile ecosystem of unique flora & fauna, preserved and protected in 96 sanctuaries and nine national parks. Geographic isolation, heavily restricted travel, mysterious Stone Age culture, and totally unchartered waters characterize this zone. Geologically akin to the Sumatran island chains, the Andaman's have been on many surfer's travel wish list since being unveiled in the late '90s by wandering photographer, John Callahan.
Although most of the surf breaks in the Andaman Islands are accessed by sailing yachts, Little Andamans is the only exception with a land-based surf scene. South swells start to pump by mid-February to April before the onset of monsoons in May which brings constant onshore winds, meaning there are only 2-3 months of good surf season in Little Andamans. We at India Surf Tours have extensive knowledge about the island and it's different surf breaks which consist of both high performance and barreling waves suitable for intermediate to advanced surfers. We secure required permits to access many of the best "out of bounds" surf spots that other surfers can't get to, with some good local knowledge and transportation.
