    From Delhi you can reach Kavaratti by two methods.
    If you have a direct flight from Delhi to Agatti, you can reach Agatti by flight. From there you can go to the destination by sailing through sea in Yacht or Boat. Otherwise you can reach Cochin by flight and from there you can reach Kavaratti by two means.
    Reach Agatti by flight from Cochin and from there by sea.
    Otherwise from Cochin four passenger ships are being operated.
    MV Tippu Sultan, MV Bharat Seema, MV Amindevi or MV Minicoy.
    Time taken is about 14 to 20 hours. There are diverse classes of services. There are restaurants etc.
    You can select as per your budget and convenience.

    For visiting lakshdweep one has to take permission from one of the following offices -

    Administrative Office - Directorate of Tourism Development, UT of Lakshadweep, Kavaratti Island.
    OR
    Secretary to the Administrator, UT of Lakshadweep, Indira Gandhi Road, Wellington Island, Cochin, Kerala.

    I am not very sure but I have read somewhere that for Govt servants this permission is not required. You can check on that.

    There are various combinations for going to this place which is not possible to mention here in details but I am referring you a site which has given the details very minutely -
