North bay Island - The Paradise for Water sports.SCUBA was the apt activity to overcome my fear of going deep underwater. Though I was determined to take up scuba this time, after my training commenced and started breathing underwater, I pulled myself out and said, "Iam not doing this. I have fear for underwater and so I can't". My trainer & my friend said, " U came all the way to try it. U can definitely do".Then I tried again & my timing improved. I came up after few mins not being able to withstand the pressure underwater. Relaxed a bit & dived down again, this time to enjoy the real beauty of the Marine world. And that's it !! My trainer had to finally pull me out telling "Your Times up" 😃The excitement of overcoming your fear, which you thought you would never do it is something incredible. Fear has two meanings- Forget Everything And Run or Face Everything And Rise. The Choice is yours 👍
Next stop was North Bay Island. This island offers so much to us individuals with its beautiful coral reefs. There are various water activities conducted here. One of my favorite was Scuba Diving! Other activities were Boat rides, Snorkeling, Sea Walk and the Coral watching! A must visit island!

We did sea walking here and found Nemo amongst other marine flaura and fauna. You can give this a miss if you are doing scuba diving and you don't care about what is on our 20-rupee note! Have the kulfi here and compare it to the one you had at Ross! I liked the one at North Bay better;) Get lunch at King Shell Restaurant by the beach.We took a day trip package to Ross and North Bay plus sea walking which cost us 8500 INR for two people. You can book these at the jetty, or contact Suresh (DM me for his number), a local auto guy who was very kind to help us out when my friend's phone died on her.
