KADMAT–2BANGARAM–THINNAKARA ITINERARY
[Agatti-Kadmat-Bangaram-Thinnakara Itinerary Route Descriptions]

Ê
 

Here is your exclusive Kadmat [5N]; Bangaram ]3N] & Thinnakara [3] Islands Package Sample Itinerary and Route Descriptions.

Your adventure begins with 12 leisurely days and 11 mystical nights in the magical coral islands at Lakshadweep where you will find a world of pleasures for you and your companion to enjoy.

The exhilarating experience during the Catamaran transfer from Agatti to Kadmat Island (Distance 65 km)

A cruise from Agatti to Kadmat onboard the HSC [High Speed Catamaran] will take around 2.30 hours. The blue sea around you is a beauteous vision. The cool ocean breeze and seagulls will give an absolutely unforgettable journey. You will encounter sandbanks, sparkling coral reef, large school of fish and other marine animals.

Thus, before you arrive the Kadmat Island – a beautiful place blessed with unique natural beauty - the inner island transfer will nourish your mind with a thrilling experience!

During the travel you could catch a glimpse of many different islands, mostly uninhabited. Bangaram island [9km] is situated just opposite side of Thinnakara island [11km] and share the vast lagoon and coralline banks with Agatti. On the north-south edge of the lagoon Parali (i); Parali (ii), Parali (iii) and Kalpitty isle are situated.

Pitti Bank is situated around 20 km ahead from Agatti Island. Pitti island, also called PakshiPitti (Island of birds) and hence there are many birds over here, particularly the Seagulls. The host of the seagulls and other birds, and their group activities will delight every one - rather it is an extra bonus to the tourists.

When the Catamaran passes close to these islands, you get yet another unique experience. A momentary, brief passing look of the local fishermen engaged in fishing operations with Pole and line vessels, a traditional method of “Tuna Pole and Line Fishing”.

A pole and line consists of a hooked line attached to a pole. The vessels carry live bait to entice the fish to aggregate around the boat by using bait and water spraying. The Lakshadweep Sea is abounding with Tuna, Kingfish, Barracuda, Shark, Snappers, Bonefish, Stonefish, wahoo to name a few.

Pitti Bank is a largely submerged sunken atoll with a very large lagoon area. There are just two islands Pitti and Amini share the lagoon and remain at its opposite ends. Amini Island lies at the northeastern extremity of Pitti Bank, 42 km from the uninhabited Pitti Island.

Kadmat island, although just 5 km northeast of Amini Island, is separated from it by a deep channel and thus forms a separate geographical unit. Along with the cool breeze of the sea, the scenic beauties and visions, you are slowly getting closer to the exotic Kadmat Island.
