Travel Directions

Shaheed Dweep (Neil) – the tiny, beautiful island located south of Andaman Islands on the East Coast of India, with unexplored coral reef and brilliant bio-diversity, white sandy beaches, forest & vegetation is one of the best tourist spots in Andaman. 37 kms from Port Blair, Neil is one of the closer island destinations to Port Blair. Shaheed Dweep (Neil) and Havelock’s islands are part of Ritchie’s Archipelago. Connected by speedboat from Port Blair daily, it provides ideal holiday destination for eco-friendly tourists in natural settings. The sea encircling the island is shallow and full of colorful corals.

Shaheed Dweep (Neil), with its very relaxed vibe and long, deserted beaches is a place to chill out after the “bustle” of Havelock. Its widest part is about 5 km in length. You can walk the whole island in about an hour or two. It is a remote destination with limited medical facilities & thus in case of any emergency, we request all guests to inform us of any major medical ailment which may need special treatments or any food allergy’s so that we can inform the resort accordingly. All guests are requested to carry a stock of emergency medicines in relation to the above.
There are a number of ferries that ply between Port Blair, Havelock, and Shaheed Dweep (Neil) on a daily basis. Do note that in case you are booking any flight to Port Blair that lands after 1330 hrs you will have to spend the first night at Port Blair and can proceed to Shaheed Dweep (Neil) only by the next day ferry.
Travelers can choose between the slower, cheaper government ferry and the faster, more expensive new catamaran depending on their arrival time in Port Blair as well as their budget. Please note however that getting tickets on the ferry can be very hard and tiresome with long queues. Depending on the rush it can be extremely hard and even impossible to procure tickets last minute and hence advance booking is always suggested. You will need to keep sufficient time to get the appropriate ferry. Please note that boarding stops 30 minutes before sailing.
The speed boats catamarans’ may/may not sail during the monsoon season.
The timings can be changed at short notice and we would request you to recheck the timings a few days before arrival. All sailings are subject to weather conditions.
Availability for ferry tickets:Buying a ferry ticket in the Andamans is not as easy as one might think. Demand for tickets is always greater than the number of seats available. There is no advance reservation system for Govt Boats, whereas Pvt.The catamaran can be booked 30 days in advance and tickets are issued on a first-come-first-serve basis.
We do not guarantee that we will at all times get you a ferry ticket, but can assure you that we will do our absolute best to buy them, once you have booked the transfers with us. Although very rare, it is possible that despite our best efforts we are unable to get a ticket for you. However, given our experience in this department and our local staff, our chances of getting the ticket are a lot better than the one you have when you arrive and stand in queue last minute.
