Why would someone board a hovercraft to get sea sight override? Wouldn’t rafting be much easier? It probably would, but I had already tried river rafting, water sports, etc. However, this time I had decided to travel through water using hovercraft. 

What is Hovercraft?

Hovercraft is a giant amphibious, air-cushioned vehicle or craft designed in such a way it travels over land and water. Hovercraft is also known as the air-cushion vehicle (ACV).  Hovercrafts in Vizag is designed with Russian technology in Russian Baltic sea, St. Petersburg and shipped to Vishakhapatnam port.


Many of us have easily travelled on boat or ship, but hovercraft is not a usual thing we get to see at least in India. When I toured Vizag beaches, I got astonished by seeing so many water activities.

What makes hovercraft ride such a unique experience?

Hovercraft tour is nothing different from speed boating and power boating unless it runs in the sea. However, hovercraft are much more than just a boat because they can travel over a variety of surfaces like grass, ice, mud, sand, snow, and swamp as well.
Hovercraft is an environmentally friendly vehicle in the world. And very useful in disasters as well.


The best part is you can own a hovercraft for a personal tour or simply join their club memberships.

Hovercraft has unique capabilities to smoothly fly over land; flooded or frozen rivers; sandbars; and thin and broken ice.

Andhra Pradesh Tourism associated with  Hoverdock management executed the project to train sailors, pilots, divers and other staff to steer hovercraft sports smoothly.

  1. I've been browsing online more than 2 hours today, yet I never
    found any interesting article like yours. It's pretty worth enough for
    me. In my view, if all web owners and bloggers made good content as you did, the net will
    be a lot more useful than ever before.
