Babu Kutty is the Boat Captain of the research vessel Khlee and Maintenance in-charge. He is a certified diver and with his knowledge and experience navigating the seascape around Wandoor, he has been integral to several marine research projects in the past. He also has short term experience in turtle surveys. Babu is from Betapur in Middle Andaman and speaks Hindi and Karen. He is the embodiment of an episode of Man vs. Wild; at odds with nature, on an eternal conquest and willing to eat the most unusual things raw. His daredevilry extends beyond food into medicine and most of his antidotes surpass “alternative”. He might frustrate you with his arguments, but he also has a softer side; he loves playing with children.
