Getting here – How to Reach Havelock Island

By Air

Pawan Hans, which until 2011 operated sporadic helicopter flights to Havelock, now flies an amphibious 8-seater Cessna seaplane from Port Blair to Havelock and back every day except Sunday, covering the distance in about an hour.

By Sea

Havelock is connected by sea and air from the capital city Port Blair. Ferries operate between Port Blair and Havelock Island 6 times a week. The journey takes about 4½ hours. Fast public sector ferries takes takes 2.5 Hrs and slow one 4hrs, if going through Neil Island the ferry takes 3.5hrs the private sector Catamaran ferry takes only 90 minutes to Havelock from Portblair.

Government-operated ferries are best booked in advance, as seats often sell out. Rates are 250 for “Chair” class and 350 for “Seat” Class. These ferries are AC and can be booked in advance from the counter at the DSS in port Blair. Booking Counter at also available in Havelock at the Jetty and these open at 9:15 to 12:15 and 14:15 to 16:15. You will have to get there early and stand in the queue but as soon as the counter opens the pushing and shoving starts so be prepared to be tough.

In busy seasons, local ferries can get booked up. You can buy tickets yourself from the Port Blair ferry office on arrival, or resorts will often offer to pre-book your tickets for the journey there and back, which you can either pick up from a travel agency on Port Blair, or they will send someone to meet you prior to your ferry. This is a good idea particularly if you’re trying to make it from your flight to your resort on the same day, as the schedules don’t leave much room for error. If you don’t have a return ticket, try and get your resort to book – or you will need to get the Havelock port early and elbow your way to the front of the queue as the locals do, and even then the ferry can still be fully booked with all of the resorts taking the tickets. On the return, the 4:30PM ferry gets booked up first, so it’s often safer to get the 10AM if you need to be sure of making onward connections.
