Another volcano, but this time less-active, Narcondam Island was put on the diving map by diving pioneer Jacque Cousteau who was the first to dive in these waters, describing "a wonderous realm of stunning marine life and coral reefs". This island provides the most remote diving of the cruise so expect rich untouched coral formations as well as spectacular rocky drop-offs. And like Barren Island, the deep surrounding waters bring in the pelagics with Eagle Rays, Manta Rays, Jacks, and Tunas being seen here in the past as well as huge Groupers and Potato Cods. But even without the big stuff, numerous Surgeon Fish, Fusiliers, Wrasse, Snappers, Angel Fish, Parrot Fish and Sweetlips dwell amongst the spectacular canyons, mass of white sponges, large sea fans, barrel sponges and steeply sloping coral ridges.
