<p>I will be in Kenya in April/May and would like to go to India by ship. Does anyone know of any shipping agents or such, which could be of help? Thanks</p>

There is a company in New York - Travltips Freighter and Cruises (www.travltips.com/) the books freighter trips all over the world.    I've traveled with them once, to Antarctica, on a cruise shop and found them reliable with knowledgeable agents.  They have a bi-monthly newsletter that offers reports on trips they have booked.       www.travltips.com/cruises/freighter/overview.php     There is also a British company that arranges travel on cargo ships: www.cargoshipvoyages.com

Lots of useful information here on traveling by cargo ship: http://www.ndoherty.com/cargo-ship-travel/

India can be tricky though. I was in India myself in 2012 and contacted many cargo ship companies requesting a ride to Sri Lanka. I had to give up in the end.
