Govt Ferry is the most seasoned and long-standing player with regards to availability among different islands. It is by a long shot the most grounded ship that keeps running from Port Blair to Havelock and Neil Island. We recommend visitors to benefit one side Government ship only for its experience. In spite of the fact that the seating isn't in the same class as journey, in any case, the view from the deck is simply astonishing. Get an opportunity to go to the deck and see the huge untamed ocean. Opportunity to go to the chiefs corner. Government ship has been the most prompt with regards to timing and administrations. For Photographers the night ship at 4:30 PM from Havelock ought to be benefited. On your way, you can get sincere shots of the dusk. The dusk happens right on time at the islands by 5:30 PM as a rule.
