About
Makruzz is a luxury catamaran service, operating between Port Blair, Havelock in Neil in the emerald isles of Andaman & Nicobar Islands. It is the first and the largest privately owned fleet in the Andamans. The professionalized service coupled with luxurious interiors and fastest travel time has made MAKRUZZ, a favourite and the first choice of tourists and islanders alike, despite the presence of increased competition over the years. On its initiation, the passenger ferry was dedicated to the tourism industry by the then Hon’ble Lt. Governor of Andaman & Nicobar Islands, Lt. Gen (Retd) Bhopinder Singh, PVSM, AVSM. The owners and the staff continue to dedicate immense efforts to improve user experience and aid the growth of Brand Andaman. Today, MAKRUZZ remains not only a top attraction but also a vital infrastructure in the tourism industry of the islands.

Nice cruise
Oct 2021 • Family
We took makruzz ferry back to back 3 times during our Andaman tour. First time from port blair to havelock. Second time from havelock to neil island. Third time from neil island to port blair. Every time we booked upper deck seats

I have following suggestion for future travelers

1.Try to book lower deck seats. Lower deck has a better front view. The refreshment counter is also in the lower deck. Lower deck tickets are cheapest
2. Ships run 30-45 minutes late on average everyday. Plan your trips accordingly
3. The cruise company will ask you to report to the jetty 2 hrs prior to departure. Dont do that. 45 minutes early is sufficient. Except for port blair, other jettys dont have place to wait. You have keep standing in rhe scorching sun the whole time. So dont be too early
4. Carry all your id, vaccination certificates and rtpcr reports properly. There will be checking at every point
5. Eat light before boarding the ferry, especially if you have sea sickness

The Makruzz ride is very comfortable and the best option to commute between Port Blair and Havelock or Neel Island. There is food service also available on the deck, and the toilets are kept clean all the time,

No refund for cancellation since 3 months!
May 2021 • Couples
Critical: Professionalism

My booking was cancelled due to Covid 2nd wave and as per email communication (in the month of April), my amount of almost Rs 11000 was to be refunded back immediately. But it hasn't been refunded till date. These guys do not respond on calls, mails and whatsapp, and their website carries a silly apologetic message stating that the services are closed due to the pandemic. This is the most unprofessional and irresponsible organization I have ever come across, more so because they are running a so-called transportation business.
Please avoid booking through this pathetic service, if you actually care for your money.

Refund pending from more than a month
Apr 2021 • Couples
Such a unethical company, cashing on cancelled tickets, i waiting for my refund from more than a month now, they have stopped answering emails and picking call.

If you slightest doubt in your travel and may need to cancel it, never book with Makruz, go for greenocean, i had a ticket with them and they had processed my refund in 7 days.

Journey to Havelock from port blair
Apr 2021 • Family
On 5th April our stay was at Havelock island resort so we were booked by thomas cook tours for a journey on Makruzz.my father enjoyed on this ferry cruise. We boarded the top deck where there were only 8 luxury private seating .when they checked our tickets the cruise staff specified that our seats were regular class not premium & we had to go downstairs onto regular class.ther were snacks also available along with some bottled beverages reasonably priced.some people were getting seasickness but we were enjoying the cruise. By about after one & hour hours time we reached our destiny Havelock island.the Makruzz cruise departs 4 o clock in the evening & reaches 5 30 same evening.

Very comfortable
Feb 2021 • Couples
We used the Makruzz to travel from Port Blair to Havelock and found it to be a very smooth and comfortable ride. I tend to get sea sick but I didnt face that issue in the Makruzz. You can buy refreshments on the Makruzz though I didnt so I don't know the price range of the same. The ship is on time and reaches on time, unlike government ferry. Seating is comfortable. Definitely use the Makruzz instead of government ferry to travel in Andamans and it will be a comfortable ride.

Didnt quite understand the 'check in' if in all other respects it is a ferry ! An expensive one of course given the seats and the speed !
