Jack Tar Charter Destination Tip – Andaman & Nicobar Islands


The Andaman & Nicobar Islands form an archipelago in the Bay of Bengal between India, to the west, and Myanmar (Burma), to the north and east. Most are part of the Andaman and Nicobar Islands Union Territory of India, while a small number in the north of the archipelago, including the Coco Islands, belong to Burma.

Andaman & NicobarThere are about 570 islands most covered in tropical rainforest, only 36 are inhabited with just four of the Andamans fully inhabited with amenities and all are practically untouched by any form of foreign influence. The Andamans lie to the north of the chain while theNicobar islands lie to the south.

These fantasy islands can be perfectly explored by private superyacht, sailing the romantic waters on an island-hopping adventure that can include anything from first-class snorkeling and barefoot walks to indulgent massages and sunset drink. The archipelago is about a two day sail by schooner from the coasts of Thailand and Myanmar so plan for chartering a yacht for at least 10 days to allow time to discover the islands unless your yacht is already based there.

Some yachts do take advantage of the seasons to shift from Mainland Indonesia and the islands out to the Andaman & Nicobar Islands during the months of October and May, other yachts will will make the crossing on request though usually with advanced notice.

Due to commercial fishing being banned the ocean is teeming with life and many of the charter yachts will troll lines out to make sure your catch of the day is as fresh as it can be. Diving is as good as it gets, the waters are clear and the coral and fish will spell bound you. Most of our charter yachts have dive gear and guides and some have PADI instructors.

Port Blair is the capital of the Union Territory of Andaman & Nicobar Islands, located on the east coast of the South Andaman Island. Just about all the islands have pristine white beaches fringed with tropical jungle and our yachts will find you a perfect spot to relax, sunbathe or BBQ.Dallinghoo-Jack-Tar-Superyacht-Charter-16
