55 miles from Chiryatapu
Contact Hut Bay Port Control on Ch16 when approaching. Anchor off the front of the town at the position given or further north to stay well clear of the turning circle for large ships entering the harbour. There is a daily seaplane service from here to Port Blair.
A reasonable range of provisions are available ashore. There are several simple bars and restaurants ashore catering to backpackers and surfers. It is possible to hire bicycles or motorbikes from Hut Bay – a great way of exploring Little Andaman. Be aware that the estuary in the middle of the town (a good place to moor your dinghy) has large, aggressive crocodiles scavenging behind the fish market at high tide.
