After an overwhelming response in Dubai and Mauritius, Seakart has found its way to the beaches of Andamans. Yes, you read that right. Travellers heading to Andaman can now explore its pristine coastline by hopping on a futuristic Seakart and zipping into the Andaman Sea. So bring those swimsuits out, pack your beach baskets and start planning a trip already!

What is Seakart?

A next-generation water sport, Seakart is a unique state of the art watercraft and gives you the experience of self-driving the Seakart at sea. These futuristic karts have a distinct, wide design which makes them practically unsinkable and extremely safe. Not to be confused for a jet ski or a speed boat, Seakarts are essentially designed like go-karts, which also gives the sport its rather interesting name. These mean machines come with a push-button start/stop, paddle acceleration on the right hand and a comfortable steering wheel which makes driving for a thrilling but safe experience.

Ever since it was first introduced in Mauritius and Dubai, Seakart has taken the world of water sports by storm. And as soon as you get on one, you realise why! Zipping away into the endless waters, without a care in the world and your friends, family or special someone to keep you company–there’s nothing more you could ask for!

Why Andamans!

Unlike other popular beach destinations in India, the Andamans still has a very limited and controlled tourism scene. As a result, this group of islands remains far away from the horrors of excessive tourism. Of all the seaside destinations in the country, Andamans is undoubtedly the most untouched–the air is cleaner, the water is clear and the people are so warm that you’ll feel just at home. If that doesn’t sound like a place to try your hands at Seakarting, we don’t know what will!

The folks over at Seakart Adventure offer a once-in-a-lifetime experience to venture out in the sea under the supervision of trained professionals. Seakart is located conveniently at Corbyn’s Cove Beach, the only beach in Port Blair city limits.
