I am planning to visit Lakshadweep islands in the coming months, and my ternary is as below. I am a solo traveler and the ship cabin has two separate beds, if I don’t have a travel partner the travel authority will assign someone!!! I Wish if I can meet someone like minded here in IM to be the travel partner, so at least I know who will be my partner ahead of time and plan the trip together. I know the procedure how to get the permit to the island and also how to book the best tour package, I can help you on this part. Please let me know if anyone interested.

BY Ship - M.VKAVARATTI- M V KVT
A Five-day cruise to visit the islands of Kavaratti, Kalpeni and Minicoy by ship- M.V Kavaratti. The island tour is organized during the day with lunch and refreshments ashore. Nights are spent on board the ship. M.V Kavaratti has 140 Diamond class accommodations. Swimming, snorkeling and other water sports are arranged during the day' tour.

Visit to Kavaratti, Kalpeni and Minicoy/ Kadmat
Day 1 Departure from Cochin by Ship(m.v. Kavaratti)
Day 2 Day on one of the islands, evening back to the ship
Day 3 Day on one of the islands, evening back to the ship
Day 4 Day on one of the islands, evening back to the ship
Day 5 Arrival Cochin

I have a tentative plan to go to Lakshadweep from Nov 10th - 18th (leaving Delhi on the 10th and returning on 18th or 19th). Do you know how long the it takes to get the permit, and if there's enough to do there for 8 days of if it's better to visit other parts of Kerala for 3 days and spend only 5 on the islands?

If you book a trip from SPORTS you do not need to worry about the permit, they will take care of it.
I do not think there is anything to do for 8 days in there, you should plan a few days in Kerala.
Most probably I will be planning my trip later Nov or Dec.

Guys..I may not able to make the trip this year or early next year, there are some official trips coming early next year too.. so i am going to push my Lakshadweep travel to middle/late next year..

I visited wellington island Cochin yesterday where the SPORTS administrative office is. I also visited the check-in point and the ship itself (from outside) here is more info here for those who are planning soon.... please see the attachment for more info. SPORTS can also arrange stay in the island if you need.. you need to pay 6000+ in addition to the tour cost. Please IM/email me for more info.

Thanks
