This a nice little island. Although you do see some ruins, the main attraction are the deer (550 in all as per their caretaker - Anuradha Rao). These deer come close to you and are not afraid. You may touch and pet them as if they are your pet dog. Never seen this before.

Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose Island previously known after Ross Island was the formal headquarters of the british colonial adminastrators. The buildings once used are ruined by natural calamities or bombing by the Japanese who surprisingly ruled these places for nearly three years. Once the Japanese left they handed over it to Netaji hence the new name. Its about 10 minutes by boat from water sports complex, aberdeen jetty, Port Blair. The light and sound show must be pre booked. Do not forget to see the light house at the far end of the island

Ross Island is presently called Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose Dweep. It used to be administrative headquarters of the British administration. The ruins at the island tell amazing tales of the luxury this place has seen. It was called, because of the splendour it had developed at the time, Paris of the East. One can spend lots of time here seeing what life it used to see in earier times. There is Light and Sound show here. Views from the Islands of North Bay and Port Blair are amazing.

We had visited ross island on 02/01/2023. There will be an speed boat that we have to take to reach ross island from Port Blair which costs around rs/-370 per person. Once u visit Ross Island, you will be given 1 hour to spend time there. I will tell according my experience 1 hour is very less time. Electric vehicle is also available. There are many old British administration ruins, free roaming deers as well as view point. View point requires 45min trekking or one can take electric vehicle as well which is available outside jetty. Sadai Gopal bhaiya had suggested us to 1st visit light house as soon as possible since photo or view comes very well. Have attached some of photos as well. If we waste time in photography of British ruins, u can miss light house so please go to light house 1st and then on way back u can visit ruins. Since sadai gopal bhaiya had booked our speed boat tickets, we got discount and costed only 300 rs per person.
He is best and very genuine whom u can trust blindly on any booking. For any hotel/ferry/cab/auto/byk booking in andaman islands. Contact him in number 9531918600/9933202151. He will be little busy. Contact him in advance for any details. We had 10 days trip. He took care of everything. He charges very minimal also. In ANI for any thing he is go to person.
He also has very good knowledge on port blair geography.
We were very disappointed that lights and sound show were cancelled in cellular Jail. Gopal bhaiya suggested an alternative for the time. So even if any event Is cancelled, if u contact gopal bhaiya he will give u many alternate options as well.
