About Aqua Outback
Tuticorin is one of the oldest port towns in India, and was the seat of Portugese trading in India in the 16th century. It was once called ‘Pearl City’ because of the pearl fishing that was an integral part of its economy. Today, the coral reefs and lagoons that harboured the pearl-growing oysters are a part of the Gulf of Mannar.
There are 21 islands between the shores of Tuticorin and Rameswaram in the Gulf of Mannar. These islands have been notified as the first Marine Biosphere of India. The Gulf of Mannar Biosphere comprises about 36,000 different species of flora and fauna in a region covered with mangroves, gentle beaches, coral islands and sea grass meadows.
Today, the town of Tuticorin continues its life as a bustling port town with a vibrant, thriving local culture. The Gulf of Mannar too boasts of some of the most beautiful vistas, landscapes and examples of coastal wildlife to be seen in India. Don’t just take our word for it though, take a look at the gallery of pictures contributed by our employees and visitors, here.
