About Nautika

Nautika is India’s youngest domestic cruise liner, with two catamarans in business: Nautika and Nautika Lite. In 2018, Nautika’s parent company, Sealink India Private Limited, unveiled the monohull ferry Nautika Lite. Since then, Sealink has been rebranded as Nautika.

Private ferries such as Nautika are spacious, clean, hygienic, and punctual. Nautika takes 2 hours to complete a journey from Port Blair to Havelock Island. The Nautika ferry, when compared to other ferries operating in the same route, is smaller. Anyhow, in comparison with Nautika, ferries like Makruzz and Green Ocean have larger seating areas and space. Nautika ferry tickets can be reserved through their website or through authorized partners like Go2Andaman.



Fleet & Seat Categories


Manufactured in Singapore by Incat Crowther and constructed by Penguin Shipyard, the gorgeous 33-meter-long passenger ship Nautika has two decks that are entirely air conditioned and can accommodate over 200 passengers.

Nautika’s seats are categorised into two classes: Royale and Luxury, with twin decks on the upper and lower levels. The most opulent seating, glitz, and entertainment are provided.

Booking Ferry Tickets? Here are Some Things to Remember

  • If you are booking your ferry on your day of arrival in Port Blair, make sure there is a time gap of 1.5 hours to 2 hours between your flight arrival and ferry departure time. You will need to be present at the jetty at least 1 hour before the ferry departure time. 
  • Book your ferries in the sequence of your travel. An example: if you are going from Port Blair to Havelock to Neil & then back to Port Blair, book your ferry for Port Blair to Havelock first, then Havelock to Neil & then Neil to Port Blair. 
  • Please enter all your details correctly. If there is any change in title, name, age or gender then tickets will need to be canceled and reissued. This will incur cancellation charges as per our cancellation policy.

Ferry Booking Tips by GO2ANDAMAN

1. Always book ferry tickets before confirming hotels.

We cannot stress on this enough. We have a number of people approaching us every season with a booked hotel at Port Blair (with a strict refund policy) looking to somehow get a ferry ticket from Havelock (Swaraj Dweep) to Port Blair. Unfortunately, once the tickets are sold out, it becomes impossible to get a ferry for that day.

2. Do not leave ferry bookings to the last minute.

Andaman Islands have become tourist hot spots in the last couple of years leading to a shortage of ferries on all routes, whether it is Havelock to Port Blair or Havelock to Neil Island, during the peak holiday season. So, ferry tickets get sold out weeks before the scheduled departures. We advise you to book your ferry tickets online as soon as your plan to visit the Andaman Islands is finalized.


Ferry Journey Timeline

  1. After booking your tickets online, you will be sent an email asking for Name, Age, and Gender of all passengers
  2. On providing details, receive your confirmed ticket in an email. Print this out, as soft copy tickets are not accepted.
  3. Reach the jetty at least 1 hour prior to your sailing time.
  4. Check-in your luggage and take your allotted seats.
  5. Set sail to your next destination (Neil, Havelock or Port Blair), and enjoy the beautiful views of the sea. Snacks will be served on board.
  6. Reach your destination in or over 90 minutes.

Is Nautika Ferry better than Government Ferries?

The pricing is higher than government ferries but the journey is more comfortable here. Nautika Ferry booking is relatively easy as schedules are easily available on their website and can be easily booked.

Why do we not take bookings for Government ferries?

If you want a hassle-free & stress-free holiday, we suggest you to not opt for govt. ferries. Government ferries are primarily aimed at transporting locals and are not recommended for tourists. Go2Andaman does not book govt. ferry tickets.

You can buy the tickets when you arrive in Havelock. Do note that queues for tickets start early in the morning, are usually long and if you are at the far end of the queue, seats might get filled by the time your turn comes.

Are Private Ferries worth the price?

Private ferries from Havelock to Neil Island cost a little more but they are worth the price. They run on time, are clean and well organized with ferry staff to assist you at all points. You can compare fares & timings for all ferries and book tickets for any of the ferries with us. We’re a one-stop shop for all your ferry needs.

To Conclude..

A holiday in the Andamans is incomplete without a trip to the exotic islands of Havelock and Neil. Both these places are the most visited islands on the Andamans. Naturally, everyone going for an Andaman island experience spends about 2-3 days in Havelock/Neil, accessible via a 90 minutes ferry from Port Blair.

Nautika is one of the ferries that operate from Port Blair to Havelock and Neil, and back. With plush interiors, spacious seats, and ultra-modern features, it represents great hospitality and warmth. The route and pricing of Nautika is similar to the other ferries but what makes it stand out is its features and services.
