There is only one place from where one can get into Little Andaman, the ‘Vegetable Bowl of the Andamans’. That place is Hut Bay’s dock!
Only government ferries ply to Hut Bay. Every day there are 2 government ferries that carry passengers into and out of Hut Bay. Sometimes, during holidays and on days of high demand, an extra ship is added to the daily fleet.
It takes about 6 hours by boat to get to Hut Bay from Port Blair. Older ships take approximately 9 hours. This is also the port that lies between Port Blair and Car Nicobar.
The dock, in itself is just a raised concrete block. Autos, taxis and buses throng to this place just before the ship docks. At all other times, the entire dock wears a deserted look. But, the dock looks pretty with its azure waters even when it is deserted.
