Absolutely Brilliant. If you are not planning to travel round the world any time soon and want to see bioluminescence in India, Havelock and the waters around Havelock are probably the only place for you. A lot has been written about Tanaz and her skills...More

The Kayaking experience is an amazing one. Definitely check it out in Havelock and do not considering going with anyone other than Tanaz. I had an incredible experience. She's very confident, knows what she's doing and a lot of fun! Definitely recommend it to everyone!
