The stay arranged by them was also good.
I always had Mayabunder in mind for the beautiful and scenic beaches it has. However, after many years of several plans not materializing, I and my friend grabbed this opportunity of a helicopter ride arranged by Thrillophilia. I not just witnessed the mangrove-lined tidal creeks at the Mayabunder Island but the whole tour of all the eight islands of Andaman, was a pleasant bonus. This three hour journey began from Port Blair at around 7:40. After viewing the floating islands we were taken to capture the views of the Bambooflat, Baratang, and Rangat.
An aerial adventure with three of my friends was always on my mind. The drone captures of Andaman’s turquoise waters and the enchanting greenery of the island always fluttered my hearts. This time in January I decided to live my dream and Thrillophilia helped me have an unforgettable helicopter trip. I cannot explain the joy of having soared like a bird above the Smith, Madhuban, Peel and Havelock islands. I recommend Thrillophilia for this exhilarating three-hour journey that lets you see the twin islands of the North and South.

We booked Seakart adventure tour in Andaman from Thrillophilia. This self-drive experience is the only one of its kind in India, and this activity took place at Corbyn's Cove Beach. All the facilities were available like changing rooms, shower rooms, lockers etc. All the Safety measures were taken care of. The equipment and the entire area was deep cleaned before and after every participant and antibacterial hand sanitizers were available throughout the activity.
I booked a tour from Ahmedabad to Andaman. It was a family trip. The excitement increases multiple folds all together when it comes to discover a completely new side of our own country. Especially when it’s such well-organized. All the credit goes to our organizers team Thrillophilia.
