The boat tour of Ross & Viper Islands is the full India package tour experience.
What is an India package tour experience like? Here’s an ear-shattering clue:
First stop is North Bay for swimming. People watching is the best activity. I grew impatient to get to the British ruins at Ross & Viper.
The the good stuff. Ross Island, administrative center of British occupation until a 1941 earthquake prompted a move to Port Blair. Most tourists stay near the boat, so explore the trails at the back of the island for the Japanese WWII bunkers. Watch for deer.
As the sun droops, the boat heads to solemn Viper Island and its gallows.
