One of the paramount tourist destinations for nature lovers is the Andaman Island. Words are really not sufficient to portray the marvellous beauty of the island. It gives mammoth opportunities to convene the astounding creatures of the maritime world by indulging in various exhilarating water activities like scuba diving, snorkelling, sea walking, jet riding etc. Travellers can arrive at the Indian archipelago either by two modes of transport —– airways or waterways. If you wish to travel by air with the Andaman tour package from Kolkata, then the Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose International Airport, Kolkata serves as a departure point for boarding the flights to Port Blair with non-stop direct flights.
Nowadays, travelling to Andaman Island by air has been made effortless and tiresome-free by flight services covering only 2 hours 5 minutes in minimum and thereby 1304 kilometres of aerial distance will be covered in maximum. It is better to evade multi-stop airways as although the rates will be lesser, the time it will take to arrive at the first destination is more than 13 hours. There are round about 31 flights going to Port Blair from Kolkata including multi-stop and direct ones. This mode of transport really saves time and is pocket friendly if you plan it with the Andaman tour packages from Kolkata.
However, if you are not comfortable with the journey by air, another alternate option that remains is through the water. This journey through the sea can also fulfil your long time wishes to carry out a voyage which can further be satisfied by opting a passenger ship service from the Port in Kolkata to Port Blair owing to the presence of direct ships to Andaman. Kolkata, yet being among one of the selective destinations for a voyage to the Andaman Islands, the vessels, MV Nicobar and MV Akbar would get hold of more time span compared to ships from other destinations. Voyagers will have to expend nearly 66 -70 hours i.e., more than 2 days in the ship prior to reach the island. It is an advice for the travellers with seasickness that they must strictly avoid the voyage and if wishes so, the ticket can be reserved for the return travel as the same vessel will take around a minimum of 2-4 days (without any delay) to stop at Port Blair. The bookings must be done about 15 hours prior to travel. But if you plan it with the Andaman tour packages, you do not have to worry about it. The weather conditions can have an effect on the commencement of the voyage.
