From Port Blair, both privately run cruises and boats run by the government can take you to the island. It is advisable to book the ferry from the Phoenix jetty in advance due to the availability of seats in the government ferries and if you are opting for private ships, be aware that the prices of the tickets in private ones are quite expensive as compared to the government ferries. Also, keep in mind to book your flights (to Port Blair) making sure of the landing time of the flight as there are chances that no boats will sail after 2 pm.
