Diving in Visakhapatnam

Just like Goa on the western side of India, Visakhapatnam has been an important city for trade for a very long time. This means that lots of ships have come in and out of the Bay of Bengal here and some have been shipwrecked. Vizag is home to huge underwater shipwrecks as well as a wide variety of underwater species. Chintapalli is the best dive spot in the area overall but the nearby village of Bheemunipatnam is home to a mysterious 200-year-old shipwreck discovered in 2017.
