Cruise trip from Mumbai to Andaman

How to Get to the Andaman Islands from Mumbai by Ship, Train, and Plane

Are you looking for the ideal spot to relax and unwind after enduring the strains of city life for many months? Make a reservation for one of our Andaman Packages, which are the greatest bang for the buck, pack your luggage, and make your way to the islands of Andaman and Nicobar, which are known for their tranquility and magnificent beauty.

A journey to the Andaman Islands is something that should only be done once in a lifetime since the natural beauty of the islands and the stunning marine life there make for an unforgettable experience. There is something for every kind of tourist to experience in the Andaman Islands, from the vibrant multiethnic culture of Port Blair to the breathtakingly beautiful white sand beaches of Neil and Havelock Islands.

The issue that arises now is how exactly one would get from Mumbai to the Andaman Islands. Our Andaman Packages do the perfect arrangement of the accommodation for our clients on the island, but they hand over the responsibility for making travel arrangements to the client itself. We have encountered instances when our customers were able to locate better discounts on travel tickets to the Andaman Islands than we were. Also, letting our clients make their own travel plans gives them more options for how they can get here.

Reaching Andaman from Mumbai by Ship

Ships that are operated by the government of India may take passengers from Chennai, Kolkata, and Vizag to the Andaman Islands. There is no maritime route that leads straight from Mumbai to Port Blair. To continue on your journey to Port Blair from Mumbai, you will first need to arrive at one of these locations:

After that, you will have the option of boarding a standard passenger ship that will get you to the Andaman Islands in around three to four days.

There are passenger ships that go to and from Port Blair regularly.

Train from Mumbai to Port Blair

To get to the Andaman’s capital city of Port Blair, it is necessary to take a train from Mumbai to Chennai, after which you may either take a ship or a flight to Port Blair from Chennai. Because it is an island, the Andaman cannot be reached by road from the mainland of India. Because of this, going by road is not an option.

The 12163 LTT MAS EXP is the most expedient option for travelling from Mumbai to Chennai. It will take around 21 hours and 35 minutes to go to Chennai from here. This particular train departs from Mumbai (CSMT) station at 18:45:00 and arrives in Chennai (MAS) at 16:20:00. It is open on Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays, Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays.

If you are searching for the option that will cost you the least amount of money, then you should make your reservation on the 22179 LTT CHENNAI EXP. The trip to Chennai will take around 22 hours and 40 minutes. After departing Mumbai CSMT at 13:20:00, the 22179 Ltt Chennai Exp arrives at Chennai MAS at 11:00:00. The cost of a ticket on the LTT Chennai Exp is 355 Indian Rupees. On Mondays, service is provided by the train.

If you wish to begin your trip from Mumbai to Chennai Central on the very last train of the day, then you can take the 22157 CSMT MS SF MAIL. You may find this train at Chennai Central Station. It takes around 23 hours and 20 minutes to go to Chennai, and the train departs Mumbai CSMT at 22:55:00 and arrives in Chennai MAS at 22:15:00. This train runs on Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays, Fridays, and Sundays.

On the other hand, if you wish to go from Mumbai to Chennai on the very first train, you should take the 22159 CSMT CHENNAI EX.

Flight from Mumbai to Port Blair

Port Blair’s Veer Savarkar International Airport provides connections to all of the country’s main urban centres. Air India, GoAir, Jet Airways, and Spice Jet all have regular flights to this place, and they leave from all of India’s major cities.

A few years ago, there were not too many flights that could be taken from Mumbai to Port Blair. However, beginning in 2017, there was an increase in the frequency of flights to Port Blair. There are a lot of people that go from Mumbai to the Andaman Islands, and shortly, we anticipate that there will be more planes coming to the Andaman Islands from Mumbai as well as other locations.

What Is the Most Economical Way to Get to Andaman From Mumbai?

We believe that taking a train from Mumbai to Chennai and then purchasing bunk class ship tickets from Chennai to Port Blair is the most cost-effective method to do the journey. But we want to warn you not to choose this option because it will make your whole trip last longer and cost you more money during that time.

What is the best option for you when travelling from Mumbai to Port Blair?

Even if sailing to the Andaman Islands looks like a really thrilling adventure, there are a few logistical challenges involved. And first and foremost among them is an unanticipated change in the weather. Because the travel time of a ship is dependent on the weather conditions, there is a possibility that your trip may be delayed if they are not favourable. Because of the delay in your flight, you will need to locate a new location to stay, which will result in extra costs. Because it may take up to a week for the weather to improve, the hotel reservations would have squandered the money that you had paid towards them.

If you want to go to the Andaman Islands quickly and easily, your best bet is to book a flight rather than going there through the means of land and water transport.  A flight will take much less time than driving there, and it will also save you a lot of headache. On your journey back from Andaman, you have the option of taking a route that takes you by water if you still want to feel the excitement of being at sea. This is due to the fact that even if your journey is disrupted in some way, or if you have motion sickness or nausea, you will still have had the experience of a lifetime.
