The ship had sailed to Barren Island for the glimpse of volcano as a part of Volcano Tourism and was appreciated by many tourists. It can carry 100 tonnes of cargo and is very punctual. It has very effective Air conditioning system and other amenities in the best of the condition. Offenders are fined Rs 500/- for paan spitting and Rs 100/- for smoking in public places.
