    It was a very bad experience for us. We had booked honeymoon holiday in Andaman islands. And while traveling in ferry from Port Blair to Havelock my wife’s got sea sickness and here health deteriorated as soon as we reached Havelock. It ruined our day as she only rested that day. We were thinking how she will go back since it was causing vomiting and headaches to her.
    But at last while on return trip she took medicine and was little relieved by that. Overall our experience in Andaman Ferry was below average !

    Andaman Ferry are great way to hop between the islands. Cheapest and best way to get along the islands. Ferry Prices are also cheap and once can easily find seat with pre booking the tickets.
    They are comfortable though they lack other facilities like food and drink options which would be good for tourists. Some of the government ferries are quite good . While on holidays in the Andaman we traveled a lot through government ferries in Andaman.
