How to reach Long Island from Port Blair

Long Island is a secluded yet enchanted island that should be visited once in a lifetime. Most of the first time tourists shrug away from visiting this island as it is in the remote location and mobile connectivity is low. If we state the facts of the island then it is an island:

Ø    With less than 2000 people living on the island permanently

Ø   The main occupation of the natives is fishing or growing tropical vegetables

Ø   There are hardly any vehicles, so it is a noiseless island with 5-6 rickshaw pullers to help the tourists.

Ø   Crime rate of the island is extremely low as there are handful of people staying on the island

Ø     It has beautiful sunsets and sunrise and the surrounding islands like Guitar Island is must to visit.

Ø   Beaches are just a walk away and are popular for Scuba diving in andaman

So How to reach Long Island from Port Blair? If these reasons are enough for you to visit the island then pack your bags and take at least ten days off to explore the Andaman Islands. But the question is how to visit the Long Island? Well, the island is located in the remote location and can be visited via Havelock Island or Port Blair, the capital city of Andaman Islands. Though, if you plan to travel through Port Blair it will be easy and you will have more options.

There are four options and you can choose one depending on your budget and convenience:

Ø   Direct Government Ferry from Port Blair: The best and comfortable way to reach Long Island is via direct ferry from Port Blair. Ferry starts early morning so you have to wake up early to board the ferry and tickets cannot be booked in advance. If budget is your concern then this is the best option as it is a government-funded service for tourists.


Ø   Hire a personal driver: It is a convenient way of traveling if you time is in your hand and you can’t wake up early. Hire a driver with a personal driver who can drop you to Rangat via road and then you can take a ferry from there. It is feasible as you can board the Government ferry from there at an economical price and is a comfortable option as you don’t have to get up early.

Ø   Private Charter: If you want to have a fun and thrilling ride to the Long island then opt for private charter. It can be expensive but if you are a group of 5-10 people then hiring a private boat will make the ride comfortable and you can enjoy fishing, swimming and diving during the trip. Also, the boat will be on standby at Long Island; so if you want to explore the neighboring islands like Guitar Island then you need not wait for a ferry to arrive. It will be like having your personal space on a secluded island and enjoy the magnanimity of nature.

These are best commuting options for tourists who want to visit the enchanted Blue Island i.e. Long Island. It is a perfect place for those who want to be along and enjoy the simple pleasures of life and live a simple life away from the complexities of the urban forest.
