Marine Life


With vast stretches of ocean water dominating the coastline and numerous streams, rivers and lakes cutting across the country, the marine life in India is bound to be an exciting thing to watch out for. Tourists from far off flock to India in large numbers to view the fascinating under water world. This world is completely different from the world, in which we as human beings live. It is one radiant and vibrant world inhabited by dazzling denizens. No doubt, it is always a pleasure to watch this world or simply its residents.

Marine life can be viewed in two ways. The first method entails a person to take a plunge into the water and explore the deep world himself. This is a far more interesting and adventurous option than the second one (as discussed later), because it gives you an opportunity to see the world as it is viz., without any human interference. The fishes, sea turtles, dolphins and various other living being go about in their usual manner without acknowledging the presence of any intruder. The second method is preferred by those people who do not wish to jump into the water but still want to enjoy the marine life. These people too have ample opportunity to stay outside and seek the pleasure of seeing the exotic inhabitants of the water.

For those interested in seeing the marine life right under the water, snorkelling and scuba diving are just the perfect option. There are many location in India where these adventure activities can be enjoyed. However, if tourists wish to stay overland, angling and fishing are the right choice. In India, opportunities for all these activities are immense. However, places where angling and fishing can be enjoyed far exceeds the places where snorkelling and diving can be enjoyed. The reason for this is quiet simple - the area covered by rivers, streams and lakes across the country is far more than the areas that have coastline. Anyways, disregarding the number of places available, the fact remains that enjoyment experienced at each of these places is simply outstanding and unforgettable.
