Departed from Mumbai towards Port Blair via flight with a stop in Chennai.

Total journey time was around 4 hours.

Before even visiting places in Adaman, the view from the plane itself was mind-blowing.

Visited Samudrika Marine Mueseum in afternoon.

Later in the evening visited the infamous Kalapani Jail(Cellular Jail) which had a light show after sunset.

Day 2

The next day we headed towards Havelock Island vai AC Ferry.

It takes around 2 hours to travel.

The journey is quite comfortable because of AC Ferry and the view we get to see while travelling.

This island has 2 main attractions - Radhanagari Beach(Awarded as the best beach in India) and Scuba Diving.

Since i had to return to Port Blair immediately the same day, i got to experience only Scuba Diving.

Day 3

We went to Ross Island which is located around 30 minutes from Port Blair.

The journey to Ross Island was also through a boat.

But this time it was a small capacity boat.

Once you reach the island, you are welcomed by a beautiful and friendly flock of deers, peacock and various other small birds.

Those animals roam freely around the island without any restrictions.
