Night to remember!
Mar 2021 • Friends
One of the best times I have spent in the water.
The glittering skies and the sparkling waters will leave you amazed. Incase those of you who wondering if it's safe, you don't have to bother at all.
1st time in a kayak, again don't worry about it.
The orgainizers are wonderful, they pay attention to every detail. We had an amazing time.

A must-do activity, don't miss out.

There are quite a few other activities that Capt. Hook offers too. Do check it out.
We went for an amazing boat ride. One of the best days we spent at Havelock and the highlights of our trip.

Amazing night Kayaking Experience!!
Mar 2021 • Couples
For someone who was entering a Kayak for the first time, this was a magical experience. Captain Qutub and Ms. Nafisa are extremely humble and informative hosts and they delivered a very detailed briefing for us when we got there and made us feel comfortable about what lied ahead - all the while answering any doubts we might have, with patience. The guides accompanying us were very experienced and well-versed with the routes. The best part being that they took us on a different route withing the creek where there was absolutely No crowd and it further added to the experience. The night, the stars and the peace, along with these great hosts added up to a perfect Kayaking trip! Would highly recommend booking with Captain Hook's to anyone who is looking for kayaking and/or for water activities around Havelock.

Thanks Captain!

Night Kayaking-Enthralling Experience
Feb 2020
Had one of the best experience of my life. So this trip to Andaman was planned few months back with my school buddies and we were so excited for this. Having visited to all the possible places , This was a time for Havelock Island. Since I am aqua-phobic I was not very keen to opt for any activity and same was the case with Kayaking and that too night Kayaking. it was "Ali" who came forward and pacified me and convinced me to go for it. He explained us about the constellation , the history of Andaman and its people , about the mangroves etc. If you are visiting Havelock and are interested to go for kayaking "Ali" is the right person to go too. Trust me you will not be disappointed.

Kayaking amidst mangroves @8AM
Mar 2020
We are a family of 4 and opted for 2 double kayaks. Knowing that we were completely new to the activity, Mr Ali started off with instructions and made us feel comfortable.

We then headed off into the sea and had the best time of our life. Mr.Ali helped us understand the essence and importance of the landscape and it's unique treasures.

It wouldn't be exaggerating to say that the mangroves changed our perspective about life. Highly recommend this!

Amazing night kayaking experience
Mar 2020 • Friends
Had an amazing night Kayaking experience with Mr Ali. We saw many stars in the sky and glowing planktons in the dark waters. Each time you paddle or make splashes in water they glow like tiny green fire flies.Star gazing with Mr Ali is a treat as he knows the story behind every constellation and the history of the islands.

It is a very peaceful experience once you get over any irrational fears like the fear of getting eaten alive by some mangrove crocodile in the dark. :) It is very different from kayaking during the day when the waves at the sea are stronger and the visibility is better and the water is blue. Everyone should try this once in their lifetime.

Unique Experience of Night Kayaking with Mr Ali
Mar 2020
Night Kayaking was a unique experience for us as we took a 3 seater kayak but what made it memorable was the company of Mr Ali Asgar.
The way Mr Ali explained the entire process and accompanied us discussing the place, stars, formations etc made our entire experience a truly memorable one.
After meeting Mr Ali, every time we see around the place we remembered the reason for it being the way it is.
We still recollect his humbleness and soft voice. Even our cab driver from our resort acknowledged him.
A truly remarkable experience which would be not possible without Mr Ali.
He is the best person we met in our entire trip in Andaman.

If its night kayaking in Havelock it has to be here with Mr Ali.

Brilliant and memorable experience
Mar 2020
During our trip to Havelock in the first week of March 2020, we had undertaken a day kayaking tour through the mangroves with Captain Hook. It was a brilliant and memorable experience and a must do for the adventure seeking in Havelock. This was our first kayaking trip and Mr. Ali – who was calm and composed, made sure we were very comfortable. We do not need to know swimming to kayak. We were given appropriate instructions along with the do’s and don’ts before getting into the kayak. Prior to letting us venture into the sea, our ability to execute the verbal instructions was also tested. It was a 2 hour insightful trip where Mr. Ali shared with us some thought provoking facts about the Andaman & Nicobar islands, its mangroves and its indigenous flora and fauna. The tour was not rushed and we could spend some time calmly watching the endless blue sea and the shiny mangroves. Mr. Ali took our pictures during the tour and shared them with us on whatsapp soon after. Water and refreshments were kept in the kayak for us to be had in case we felt thirsty or hungry. A small waterproof bag was also provided to keep our phones and wallets. It is best to go without any baggage for the trip. A special mention to Haddo as well who came behind us patiently while we navigated the kayak. Booking the tour with Captain Hook is very simple. One just needs to visit their website and fill in their google form for kayaking. You get a response within a day on the availability and can book it immediately. Their website also has some helpful kayaking tips. All in all, would definitely recommend the kayaking experience with Captain Hook.
