The second largest island in the Lakshadweep chain.Minicoy originally gained prominence as a centre for tuna fishing. Southernmost in geographical orientation, the island owes its growing reputation as a preferred dive site to the presence of three large shipwrecks in relatively shallow seas. One of the wrecks is believed to be the SS Hoechst and the unfortunate events that caused their sinking, probably led to the construction of a lighthouse as far back as 1885.
Wrecks have always proved a strong magnet for divers and the Minicoy trio are virtual underwater museums. The various specious of sealife that abound in the waters around the wrecks are unusually large and the ferrous content leeching from the ruins are thought to be a likely agent of this mutation. Practically all dive sites on Minicoy claim manta ray sightings during September/October and January or February. Other exotic species including shark, bull ray, turtles,jacks,red and black snapper, napoleon wrasse,barracuda,sweetlips giant sweet lips and humpback parrot fish are found in abundance at Bose point,Murambu and Boduhavaligang.
