2 Kolkata - Port Blair (flight) Morning transfer to Kolkata airport and approx. 2 hours flight. After arrival to Port Blair you'll be met by company representative and transferred to hotel. After lunch, visit the Anthropological Museum and Naval Marine Museum. In the evening, attend the enthralling sound and light show at Cellular Jail, where the heroic saga of the Indian freedom struggle is brought alive.
3 Port Blair - Havelock Island (ferry) Early morning departure by ferry to Havelock Island (57 kms by sea from Port Blair) and transfer to resort. Visit to Radhanagar Beach at Havelock Island (credited as Best Beach in Asia by Time Magazine in 2007). Stay overnight amongst sandy beach and lush green forest in a comfortable resort.
4 Havelock (Elephant beach) After the Breakfast, visit the Elephant Beach. Embark on the most memorable snorkeling trip, just 40 min by boat.  Sea around this beach offers snorkelers calm blue shallow waters and is perfect even for beginners. The beach is also a great place to spend the time relaxing. It is very scenic with fallen trees and white sand giving the photographer some interesting shots. The large reef here starts very close to shore at a depth of about 1 meter. It is mostly made up of hard coral and has plenty of marine life. Evening visit to Kalaphathar Beach at Havelock for sunset.
5 Havelock - Port Blair (ferry) Return to Port Blair in the morning. Afternoon visit to Ross Island from where the Britishers governed the islands. See the ruins of the British settlements, which are being eaten by jungle in similar way like Angkor's ruins in Cambodia. Enjoy the last evening on the Andamans, perhaps in some famous seafood restaurant?
6 Departure to Kolkata or Delhi Morning flight to Kolkata or Delhi and further to your final destination.

 

Tour variants, extensions and combinations: 
  • Optional activities: Snorkeling, sea walking, jet ski, scuba diving with underwater photography, banana ride, sofa ride, game fishing.
  • Extend stay in Havelock (+1 to more days): If you are keen to relax more, you can stay some more days at Havelock, enjoying its beaches and tranquility.

Northern Andaman is perfect refuge from the touristic hustle and bustle of Havelock.
