KAYAKING - only at Havelock beach, couple of institutions, and not much info
available. (Dive India and Barefoot)

Public Transport

Andaman Herald and Daily Telegrams for daily inter island ferry schedules

Local buses are available with the schedule, I couldnt find the routes, but the
government has provided with the bus numbers with the driver names :P


Minimal Cost

For a 5-6 day trip with everything inclusive, it would come about 75-80k with a
good hotel, return airfare and scuba 4 day package.
