M. V Green Ocean is a new ferry that was launched in the mid-2015 to help travelers move from one island to the other in an economical way. This is quite similar to the Government ferry, but with better seating and space.
Green Ocean 1 is the only private cruise to have an open deck where you can get a panoramic view of the open sea during the ride from Port Blair to Havelock and return. You can get outside your seating space to the open deck to get better views, entertainment, and dance to the music.
The total seating capacity is 198 seats divided into four different classes of seating Lower Deck- Economy, Executive & Upper Deck- Luxury and Royal Class. This ferry puts forward an altogether different experience for travelers visiting the Andaman Island. The best part about this ferry is that it has plenty of space for travelers to walk around during their ride. With fast cruises (Makruzz and Coastal Cruise) such options are not available.
The seats are comfortable, spacious, and the passengers can travel at ease throughout the entire trip.
The cruise has a pantry for some snacks and beverages for the passengers, televisions on each deck, and a music system for entertainment. You have the choice of choosing your seats while booking your ferry tickets.
We recommend photographers to opt for Green Ocean 1 during your return from Havelock as the sunset view is incredible around this time for capturing some amazing stills of the sunset.
Since Green Ocean 1 has an open deck it moves very slowly and it is the slowest among all the other cruises. The ferry takes around 2 hours and 15 Minutes to reach Havelock from Port Blair and vice-versa.
We suggest you choose Green Ocean 1 for your journey at least once to experience the open deck journey from Havelock to Port Blair as the views, feels, and the beauty of Andamans from a different perspective.
We will make best efforts to book a window seat for all the bookings made. However, the same cannot be guaranteed. Please note that we are not responsible for any issues concerning the change in timings from the ferry authorities. We will update you and make alternative arrangements in such situations. A scanned copy of the document is sent to your email ID. This ticket can be used to board the ferry.
