There's a boat ride from kanyakumari to Vivekananda memorial.there's too much crowd but the rock is worth visiting.if not for Vivekananda's statue and memorial,you can stand on a rock in the middle of ocean and the breeze is really soothing

A serene place to enjoy. The method to go is by ferry where ticket price is very cheap unless and until the line is too long and you want to opt for VIP line. Place offers a good info about mythological stories and Vivekananda.

You can buy ferry tickets in the boat jetty office just before your trip to the rock. no need advance booking and I think advance booking is not available.
