SeaPlane Flying Expirence:

It is worth while to experience flying in Seaplane, as the Amphibian Aircraft offers large individual windows to each and every passenger that gives fantastic aerial view of the scenic beauty of Andaman and Nicobar islands and particularly the thrill it offers while flying so low above the sea level combined with the excitement of landing and taking off in the sea

In Port Blair the Seaplane operates from the Pawan Hans Helicopter base in the Airport and in Havelock and Diglipur it lands and takes off from the earmarked water dromme in the Sea near the Shore/jetty. Floating pontoon is placed in the waterdromme in Havelock and Diglipur on which the passengers will be disembarked from the Seaplane. To take passengers to shore from the Pontoon and vice versa, Exclusive Speed boat is also pressed into service

Come enjoy funfilled beach holiday and romantic honeymoon in Andaman and Nicobar Islands.
