Are there any boat services between India to Sri Lanka?

I know there was a service a few years back, but don't know if it's still running.

Any other suggestions on the easiest way to get to Sri Lanka from India?

Thank you!

Andreas

Aargh! A few years? That was more than a decade ago. Not a chance and get there before the truce unravels. Try flying from Southern India..

I know you can fly to Colombo from Chennai as well as Trichy airports. It's a quick flight.

Thank you all for all the info you have given me!

I'm also thinking of visiting the Maldives. I know there is a daily service from Trivandrum to Male. Might go there as well.

Is it only possible to get to Sri Lanka by air?

Yes, it's only possible to go to Sri Lanka by air. There hasn't been boat service for more than ten years...maybe closer to 20 years. Forget about it!
