About The Activity
This is something that happens when you choose not to swim but still go under water, or if you want to go to an aquarium but where fishes are not harmed, this is a great activity for such people. In this activity, youll be given an oxygen helmet that once you put on will provide you oxygen under water. After wearing the helmet youll be helped down the sea onto the seabed where youll walk among the sea life. Youll be like a fish roam around the homes of other fishes. You will take some time to getting adjusted to walking under water. It is not as easy as walking on land.

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 most recent Sea Walk has been launched at Elephant Beach, 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.
