  • The Jolly buoy island takes about an hour. It chugs along at several jungle Islands with mangrove forests over and finally reaches Jolly buoy island. The visit to the island up to 150 tourists is allowed per day. Up to three boats in the morning to the island and in the early afternoon it goes back. Stay 2 hours. Unfortunately you can not everywhere on the island in the water, only in a small defined area. Snorkeling was also not allowed. The water glass boats (extra cost), which constantly chugging around the island were annoying. The sea around the island is fantastically beautiful. We were the only European tourists on this day. For booking at the tourist office in Port Blair, you need a copy of your Passport. The permit costs INR 1000 + 600 for the boat tour.
