help and advise please

Hi, I would love to visit the Andaman Islands for three nights. I can arrange my own flights arriving in Port Blair at midday. Can I then get a ferry to Havelock island (where I wish to stay) or do I have to stay one night in port Blair first? Also how do I get from airport to ferry jetty? How far is it?

I am not interested in travelling around, I just wish to spend time relaxing on a very quiet beautiful beach.

Can you tell me the ferry times to and from Havelock and can I book in advance online?

Finally, any recommendations for accomodation would be appreciated as would any other advise. I would be going in March.

Sorry so many questions.. Mandy

Hi Mandy

I think you will be too late for the Ferry that day arriving at that time since I was there last there have been a number of innovations in transport such as seaplanes so that may change things but it's more expensive obviously if you go back through the post there is plenty of information about it. I think Barefoot is the only place to stay in Havelock on the best part of the island and the best beach by far. Not expensive by western standards. Enjoy your stay

Regards

Doug

I am interested in using the seaplane or helicopter to transfer to Havelock. I have searched the web but seem to be getting contradicting information so can someone give me the latest up to date info please.

Can I prebook either of these over the phone/email or would I be able to get a ticket when I arrive at Port Blair. How often do they fly?

Many thanks for any help

Contrary to previous post, the afternoon ferry to Havelock is 2pm (i took this ferry 2 weeks ago) - depending on when your flight gets in you could make this time. You will only need to be at the port at 1.30pm at the earliest.
