The activists were set to join the villagers who have buried themselves neck-deep in sand along the shore, demanding a halt to the preparations for loading of fuel into one of two nuclear reactors at the controversial plant.
On Friday, Satishkumar - a close associate of SP Udhayakumar, the activist who is leading the protests - was arrested in Chennai for trying to "instigate" the fishermen there to join the stir against the Kudankulam Nuclear Power Project (KNPP).
Meanwhile, the search for Mr Udhayakumar is still on, police said. He had announced that he would surrender on Tuesday night, but later did a U-turn.
The Supreme Court had, on Thursday, refused to stop the loading of fuel into the nuclear reactor at the Kudankulam plant, stressing at the same time that the safety of the people is of prime importance.
