Kanyakumari, renowned as an international tourist destination, welcomes thousands of visitors, both domestic and foreign, daily. The scenic beauty and cultural attractions draw many during holidays and festivals.
One of the popular activities for tourists in Kanyakumari is witnessing the sunrise and indulging in a boat ride to the Vivekananda Memorial Hall and Thiruvalluvar Statue. To enhance the tourist experience, the boat service hours for these iconic locations have been extended.
Typically, the boat service operates daily from 8 am to 4 pm without any interruptions. However, recognizing the increased influx of tourists during the Pongal festival, the Bhoompur Shipping Corporation has decided to extend the ferry service by an additional 3 hours. This extension will be in effect for three days starting from the 15th, allowing visitors to make the most of their time exploring the picturesque attractions of Kanyakumari.
