Snorkelling and Scuba Diving 

Snorkel your way through an array of fishes and vibrant coral reefs in crystal clear water. Since Konark is where history and water activities collide, you have the opportunity to scuba dive and explore shipwrecks such as the HMS Carron. Although exploration of these ship wrecks might be well-suited for experienced divers due to low visibility and challenging conditions, do not be disheartened. Witnessing the school of colourful fishes is a sight that should not be missed either. Ensure that you go with experienced operators in the area for your safety.
