Travel to Andaman and Nicobar by Ship

Main Sea Port at Andaman: Haddo Wharf, Port Blair

Ships available from: Chennai, Kolkata, Visakhapatnam


To begin your beautiful journey at Andaman, you may decide to travel by ship. Ships sail from Chennai and Kolkata to Port Blair and back around 3 to 4 times a month. However, in Visakhapatnam, you will be able to take a ship only once a month. Your journey by ship will last around 3-4 days, last over 50-60 hours and make a stop at Port Blair for 2-4 days. 

You can access the shipping schedule over a month in advance for the mainland-island sector.

We don’t usually recommend traveling by ship. But if you’re the kind of traveler who is looking for an unusual adventure every step of your journey, you can choose this option. Although, we’d like to tell you that you’ll have plenty of that on the islands!

A few facts you should know about Travel by Ship

  • Your travel by ship is a 3 to 4 day long journey. Unfortunately, the ship doesn’t act as a cruise liner, which means you won’t be provided with any entertainment options or exciting meals. Before you choose to take this journey, think of the ship as a strictly commercial choice of travel. 
  • The booking process is everything but easy. The lack of convenience can add a little frustration, since you can only make your bookings by physically visiting the Shipping Corporation offices in Calcutta, Chennai, or Vishakhapatnam. There’s no option for you to make these bookings online.
