Over night ,our ship sailed towards Kalpenni. The place that we visited each day made me feel that 'this is the best place ever' .I still don't know which place is more beautiful but all I know is Kalpenni too is portrayed by the best artist.The most amazing thing I felt there was tides resketching the frame.We visited a shore once we reached Kalpenni. After doing our snorkeling while we were returning to the ship,the shore wasn't as same as before,it was all covered with water.Since my hubby wanted to do scuba for long time,I got an additional privilege of doing my snorkeling in the scuba area.As part of the package snorkeling was free for us within Kalpenni. There you can see sea turtles ,corals and many other amazing sea life. The next part of the agenda was to visit the coconut factory which will remind us the cottage industries in our state. After our hectic day we came back to the ship.I guess these kind of journey will help you to make more friends since you won't be interrupted by calls,Facebook,Twitter and so on. BSNL is the only dependable mobile network available these islands. All these days my hubby and me made the visits to ship deck as a daily routine.All those days we hope for seeing the sunrise from the deck,but our laziness and tiredness was more than our desire hence we could be only satisfied with the morning sky.
in the morning on high tides we sailed to Tinakara a near by island with a very few people. we also saw Parali 1&2. there was also Parali 3 but it got submerged in Tsunami 2004. these are inhabited islands. after enjoying the beauty. serenity and peace we came back to Agatti in the evening. on the way back Jaffar our boat crew head took us on the deep sea to see dolphins. it was very risky as the boat was small and the hides were high. but we saw so many dolphins that the risk was justified. it took us 1hr to reach back from Bangaram to Agatti. due to unavailability of accomodation we were able to visit kavaratti which i still regret but we enjoyed at Agatti.
