  • Island of Andaman

The Island (often just called Havelock) is one of the most beautiful islands of Andaman Island and is a placid heaven like no other. Situated 57 km north east of Port Blair, Havelock Island is a hidden jewel, which offers a breath taking trail of natural expeditions. It hosts two of the world's most renowned beaches; Vijaynagar Beach and Radhanagar Beach. Time magazine in 2004 rated the island’s Radhanagar Beach (Beach No. 7) as the finest in Asia. The beach is extremely gorgeous with its brilliant, pristine and blue water. Walking on the pristine sands along the shore, one can hear the sound of waves gently splashing against the beach. The Island also has the biggest concentration of breath-taking diving and snorkeling sites, thus acting as a paradise to marine world explorers.

By Air

The nearest airport is in Port Blair from there you can either take a ferry to Havelock Island or fly in an amphibious 8-seater Cessna seaplane from Port Blair to Havelock and back every day except for Sunday.

By Sea

Ferries are the best way to reach this island and you can take ferries from Port Blair and Rangat. The schedules and timings of these may vary according to the season hence it is advisable to enquire locally about ferries in advance.

But the major mode of transportation is air service which takes 2 hour from Chennai by flight. But if somebody takes the sea route from Chennai it takes around 60 to 70 Hours to reach Andaman.

From Kolkata:

From Kolkata, The best way to reach these exotic islands is to take flight from Kolkata which is two and half hour long. And distance from Kolkata to Port Blair through Sea is 1255 KM which takes 76 to 80 Hours to reach Port Blair

From Delhi:

Surrounding the island there is no rail Services available to reach from Delhi to Andaman.

Scuba Diving

Scuba diving is a form of underwater diving in which a diver uses a scuba set to breathe underwater. Unlike earlier diving, which relied either on breath-hold or on air pumped from the surface, scuba divers carry their own source of gas, usually compressed air, allowing them greater freedom of movement than with an air line. A scuba diver usually moves around underwater by using swim fins attached to the feet, but external propulsion can be provided by a diver propulsion vehicle, or a sled pulled from the surface.

Glass-bottom boat rides

The Glass-bottom boat rides allow visitors to experience several fascinating aspects of marine life, and provide them a bird's eye view of the aquarium. Starting with the spectacular sight of Cownose Rays, which circle in flocks near the surface, the rides also offer an unprecedented overview of the various habitats of the diverse aquatic animals. Glass-bottom boat rides, which replicates an ocean environment, have their own marked territories at different levels of the tank, as they do at sea. Nurse Sharks, Fantail Rays, Guitarfish and all the small reef associated species are commonly found on the ocean's bed while the sharks prefer to be in the darker rocky areas and caves. Rays have a preference for being near the water surface, where they flap their

Andaman Trip has been a memorable trip in our Travel Diary. We are travel freaks and plan 2-3 trips in a year. The arrangements made by Incredible Andaman Tourism (India) Pvt. Ltd. exceeded our expectations. Every detail of the trip right from the pickup of guests from the airport to the drop facility back to the airport was meticulously planned and organized. There was no single day where we felt that ‘it could have been better’. Every need was being taken care of. Would also like to specifically mention my appreciation for Neha who had got the itinerary prepared as per our requirements and was accommodative in the last moment changes as well. I would also like to appreciate the driver who accompanied us during the trip Mr. Bala, a sober, well mannered person. We have travelled through many tours and travels and at the end of the trip, we always have a list of ‘What could have been better?’ and ‘what went wrong’ instead of remembering ‘What went well?’ but with Incredible Andaman Tourism (India) Pvt. Ltd. I just had praises for the team and the experience was truly awesome I have already started recommending the place and the travels to my friends, relatives and colleagues Lastly would like to wish you all the best and please maintain the benchmark that you have created. Even though we were only two of us, you guys gave us an Innova, which was a good gesture and a heartfelt one Thanks for everything

M/s Andaman Island Travels (P) Ltd. is surely a professional tour operator who has managed our tour from 20th Dec 2012 to 25th Dec 2012. Their vehicle were good and driver Jairam was courteous and shown professionalism in every of their interaction with us. The hotel bookings and the ticket booking for Makruzz for Havelock island were arranged by Andaman Island Travels (P) Ltd., so our tour was tension free. We had a lifetime experience in Andaman. Andaman Island Travels Pvt. Ltd. was able to live up to my expectations and arrangements for tour and travel was excellent. The trip to Havelock by Luxury Catamaran Makruzz was a thrilling experience. Radha Nagar Beach, where we spent more than 4 hours in the water is a never forgettable experience. The tour to Baratang Island was a pleasant one. Also the North Bay where we could see live corals was the highlight of the tour. The drivers were punctual and were very communicative. Thanks to Andaman Island Travels Pvt. Ltd. team.
