You get to meet the team and strangers who turn out to be your friends over the days you spend on the tour. Get accustomed to the weather – be surprised, the sunrise here is at 05:00 AM and sunset at 05:00 PM, not something you get to experience on the mainland. It might be raining and when it stops, it wouldn't leave traces. Every time we narrate the weather conditions of Andaman over the years we just remember our friend narrating it as HOT- WET - & it's just HOT & WET.
