Ross Island by Boat
Depart from your SeaDream yacht and transfer to the Aberdeen pier by bus. On arrival at the Rajiv Gandhi water sports complex you will board local boats and leave for Ross Island. This eerie forlorn place was once the administrative headquarters for the British. All that remains are the timeworn remnants of old structures. A swimming pool, tennis court, bakery and cemetery are mute testimony to the lifestyle of the ruling class, in sharp contrast to the jail where Independence fighters were incarcerated. A small museum displays the opulence and decadence of a bygone era exhibiting photographs and other antiques. Spotted deer and peacocks roam about on the island so with a little luck you can spot few in your trip. At the end of your Ross Island adventure, return via local boat to your SeaDream yacht.
