As Vivekananda rock memorial is situated in sea approx 500 meters from main land , the only access to it is by taking a boat/Ferry which are organised by Tamil Nadu government . There are two types of tickets available . one is ordinary cost around Rs 50/- and a special ticket cost around rs 200/- . The only difference between these tickets are that the queue for taking the special ticket will be much shorter than for the ordinary ticket and thus we can easily get in to the ferry service .At peak seasons both counters will have long queue .In the both cases when reaching rock memorial , you have to take a entry fee of around Rs 20/- .
PS.-In the return journey there is no separate queue for special ticket , all have to stand in the same queue . .
