Visited in mid of the week... So very less crowd. Boating to Thiruvalluar statue closes sharply by 4 pm. For Vivekananda rock the timing mentioned is 9 am to 4 pm but they allow till 6 pm. View of Thiruvalluar statue from close up is awesome.

Rs. 35 for boat ride
Rs. 169 to skip the que for boating

Rs. 20 separately to be paid at the memorial rock again for entry.
No charges for Thiruvalluar statue.

The memorial is good but there is nothing much to see than enjoying the sea view. The queue for the ferry is very long and would take an hour to get to your turn.
