The favorite beach destination of our country is can be reached easily by a ferry. A ferry service from Goa to Mumbai will be restarted again from April of 2018. Though this is not the first time, the current generation will definitely be overjoyed with this news. The earlier ferry service between Goa and Mumbai was run from the year 1994 to 2004 by a Scandinavian boat. Now that the service is to be started again, you have all the reasons to cheer up if you badly wanted to explore at least some part of our country via waterways. It is not just the fun and adventure it the journey offers. But also, the amount of pollution that can be reduced.

Imagine yourself, sitting on an open deck enjoying the breeze of the sea and vast ocean that is never-ending. Sounds great right?

The travel to Mumbai and Goa via sea would take sixteen hours (yes, sixteen hours!). The cruise service will start its journey from the domestic terminal in Mazagaon. En route, it will stop at Dighi in Raigad, Dhabol and Jaigad in Ratnagiri, Vijay Durg, Malvan and then Panaji. If you are looking forward to taking the trip lo and behold! You can witness the mesmerizing beauty of the Konkan Coast. And don’t worry, the boat has the capacity to ferry 400 guests at a time.

Plans to revive the long-defunct sea link to Mumbai have been in the works since 2014. Now, it seems we’re finally set to sail.

Now turn on the cruise mode and get set for a bumpy ride on the sea. Singing Yo-Yo and a Bottle of Rum.
