The Aberdeen Jetty is a part of Marina Park near water sport complex of Port Blair, where launches and boats are available to the Ross and North Bay Island. Island tourist boat operator association looks about the works here. The system works here is in a well organized manner. The boat name is clearly mentioned on the ticket, departure and arrival timing is also mentioned on the ticket. Announcements were made in mike when the boat arrives. Passenger names are called out. So there is no need to rush and run towards the entrance of the Jetty.
My tour operator arranges the ticket and brings me here at 9:00 am. At correct time boat comes to the jetty and we board M.V. Island Waves boat. For safety life jackets provided to all persons and overloading of boats than maximum capacity is not allowed. A guide type person comes and gives instruction about how to wear life jacket then tell about Coral Bay Island and what activity can be done there. I and my wife choose to use glass bottom boat so about 9:55am we were shifted to glass bottom boat for 20 to 30 minute ride to see under water coral life through glass bottom boat. The tourist included my son who chooses other activity like Sea walking and snookering were directly taken to the North Bay Island.
