A family friendly , exhilarating activity in Port Blair.
Introduced in 2020, Seakart is an adrenaline filled water-sports available for the first time in India and launched in the third destination in the world after Mauritius & Dubai at Andaman and Nicobar Islands.
The Seakart itself is a novel watercraft that is built like a go kart, hence the name, which delivers the best of everything in one single adventure.
The activity involves the guest self-driving the Seakart under the guidance of a licensed instructor along the coast of Port Blair on a long route.
The Seakart is made to fit 3 people, but unlike jet skis and speed boats who are allowed only near the shorelines, Seakart actually goes a step further and allows you to explore the wavy deep seas far from the shoreline, driving all by yourself, making it one of the most unique experiences to have in Port Blair.
The ride starts from the shore of Corbyn’s Cove Beach, where you are accompanied by a trained instructor, leaving seats for 2 guests who can enjoy it together. A total of 6 Seakarts drive in a V formation piloted by “Starfish” - the rescue boat, which keeps everything in check. Each Seakart has their own steering wheel that lets you guide the boat in any way you like to an allowed degree. Anybody can drive a Seakart and it does not require any prior swimming or driving skills.
As soon as you leave the shoreline, you are greeted by rough tides of the beach, which splashes across the Seakart and sprinkles on your face, giving away a vibe of refreshment. As you enter the deeper seas, you can feel the difference in waves and the calmness of the ocean, with a spectacular view of the open horizon combined with a great view of the roads and shoreline dotting all the way from Corbyns Beach to Marina Park and finally the Ross Island.
The ride starts at the Corbyn’s Cove Beach and follows through to the Flag Point near Ross Island, from where it returns back, covering around 5-6 Kms in total. The ride lasts for about 20 minutes, making it one of the longest sea adventures you can have in the Andaman Islands.
The trip starts at the Seakart Adventure Lounge at Corbyn’s Cove Beach, where you are given a warm welcome. Soon you will move for a pre-exursion briefing that details the dos and donts. After you are done with the liability waivers, you can move forward to the changing rooms and get ready for the adventure.
Soon after this you will be taken to the Seakart and the drive will begin.
Seakart Costs INR 3,499 per person when shared by 2 people who take turns driving the kart.
The same cost changes to INR 4,999 per person for 1 person who drives the kart by themselves and can be accompanied by a child of 6-12 years of age.
