If time is not a constraint for you, and you wish to travel lavishly, you can opt to travel to Andaman by ship. Not only is the experience something off the beaten tracks, but also a more convenient way to enjoy the marine beauty of the endless sea.

There are nearly four to five ships that ply every month from Chennai, Kolkata and Vizag. But bear in mind that the journey is 50 to 60 hours long. Although the voyage is quite time consuming, it gives you more time to take in the expansive beauty that surrounds you. If you’re travelling from Chennai, there are two ships - MV Nancowry and MV Swarajdeep.

If you’re travelling from Chennai, there are two ships - MV Nicobar and MV Akbar. MV Harshavardhana is a ship that operates from both, Chennai as well as Kolkata. You can also opt to board a ship from Vishakhapatnam, from where ships ply to Andaman once every month. If you love the sea, then there’s no better experience for you than the beautiful voyage to Andaman.

I had planned this tour for my cousin. I was in touch with Shubham and Atri from booking time.Both were kind and helpful for answering and sharing the details to my queries.Later on Atri was in touch with me and he helped in customizing this tour for couple. He has clarified all my doubts, concerns during planning, booking for this tour. We opted for deluxe category and we shared our preferred list of hotels.Atri also helped in decision making for the hotels. Hotels were good and couple had nice time... Cabs were on time, food was good... Flower bed decoration was too good and also candle light dinner.. but was expecting more for candle light dinner apart from just table decoration ... Overall it was nice experience...

The stay arranged by them was also good.

We booked Seakart adventure tour in Andaman from Thrillophilia. This self-drive experience is the only one of its kind in India, and this activity took place at Corbyn's Cove Beach. All the facilities were available like changing rooms, shower rooms, lockers etc. All the Safety measures were taken care of. The equipment and the entire area was deep cleaned before and after every participant and antibacterial hand sanitizers were available throughout the activity.
All sightseeing-spots were absolutely awesome, the tour itself was very well-organized, well-managed, and well-executed. There is no other way that I will mark negative remarked for this trip as the stay, breakfast, and transport and everything were met our expectations...
The destination was truly paradise with amazing views and attractions, all our needs during our trip were well-arranged which we didn't have any complaint at all... The trip went smoothly throughout as expected which makes us very comfortable and enjoyable
I booked a tour from Ahmedabad to Andaman. It was a family trip. The excitement increases multiple folds all together when it comes to discover a completely new side of our own country. Especially when it’s such well-organized. All the credit goes to our organizers team Thrillophilia.
It was an amazing trip with my partner. We spend 3 days in cruise and we had so much fun and other 4 days in Andaman, visiting various islands and enjoying all the watersports. THANKS Thrillophilia for the wonderful trip
