About

A trip to the place that you often see at the back of a 20 Rupees note, the North Bay Island. The lighthouse seen at the back of 20 Rupee Indian note is from North Bay Island, Port Blair. The new 20 Rupee note which started printing from 2019 doesn't have the north bay island printed in it.
 

In this trip, you will be taken to North Bay Island to enjoy the water sport activities and then to Ross Island to explore the ruins of this place that was once the administrative capital of the British.
 

Both these destinations are a must-visit destination that one should not miss while in Andamans.


Ross Island is a few miles away from Port Blair, once the administrative headquarter for the Britishers. The British then left the island and took settlement at Port Blair due to an earthquake that rocked the Island in 1941. Since then the Island could never recover from the decay and neglect which had set in. Slowly but steadily nature took its toll, as the banyan trees engulfed the buildings thus replacing the structures created by man. This island makes you feel nostalgic and takes you back in time when this was an administrative settlement for the Britishers. The Indian Navy has rebuilt some of the old buildings like the bakery and the local stores, from where you can purchase souvenirs.


North Bay Island also known as Coral Island is a popular destination in Port Blair. The beach and the water activities in its fringing coral reefs are the closest ones you will find at Port Blair. A ferry will take you across Aberdeen Jetty and bring you back after 3 hours. The corals at North Bay are spread over a large area. You're very likely to spot many fish, lobsters, or even clams on the coral reef. When at North Bay, it is time to relax and enjoy. Activities such as Snorkeling, Scuba Diving, Speed Boat Rides and Sea Walk are available here.
 

Trip includes all transfers, boat tickets, pick up and drop and drop to the hotel. A personal AC Vehicle will be provided for the trip. A maintenance fee of 30 Rupees at Ross Island and 10 Rupees and North Bay Island has to be given by the customers after reaching these islands. These amounts cannot be paid in advance. 


This trip is closed on Wednesday. Hotel Pickup is considered within City Limits. If your hotel is far from the main city then pickup and drop cab charges will be extra.

We had booked our trip online with Experience Andamans website, we really enjoyed this trip. We just got our tickets for trip already done by team people only, we have opted for scuba diving at this place as it was recommended by staff on spot and it was worth visiting

From water complex boarded boat to Ross Island reached in 15 mins ride from Port Blair. It has ruins of British Colonies, church, sweet water pond, lots of flora and fauna, the most attractive things in north bay island is the light house.... water sports activities travelling on the same boat to both the place was a good experience

Once the seat of British power, today the island has charming ruins to boast about. Abandoned during WWII, it is now home to numerous peacocks & deer. After Havelock Island, north bay is island for activities like scuba diving, sea walking, semi-submarine expedition and coral sightings. Enjoyed the time here
