Water cruises In Kolkata

One of the top things to do in Kolkata is boating on the Ganga or on the Hooghly River to catch a glimpse of some historical places along with some old aged monuments and temple situated near the Hoogly River.

A Boat tour on the Ganga RIver

The Ganga can be toured in many ways, two of the most preferred ways being the country style boat ride and the Shikara ride. The country style boats carry the ancient glory, culture, and style of the city, and if you are a heritage lover then you must avail this ride. Rides start from Madurdaha at Beniapukur in the heart of the city. The organizers would pick and drop you from and to the hotel. During the boat ride you would be supplied with mineral water bottles, English speaking guides, and your conveyances from hotel would be in AC cars.

For the Shikara boat ride experience, you will once again have to come to another bank of the Ganga at K. B. Sarani, Golpark. Shikara boat is decorated with leaves and balloons and there will be a red carpet walkway to welcome you for the cruise party. Timings are 9:30 am to 7 pm. You can get cakes, music, cold fireworks and such party arrangements on the Shikara boat by the organizer, while you tour through the cool and breezy Gangas. Apart from that, if you want to spend some time on boat with your loved one then you can choose the paddle boat ride in the Vedic Village water lake. You can easily reach this place by car and Vedic Village is situated 23.2km away from Kolkata.
