Depart from Gateway
A transfer boat will pick you from the jetty and take you to your sailboat. Hoping from the one boat to another is a bit of an adventure, but quite safe.
We sail pass some of Mumbai’s oldest lighthouses accompanied by seagulls and the gentle splash of the water. You’ll learn the basics of sea awareness, how to orient yourself in the water, and to know exactly where you are.
Lots to sea
Soon we’ll be passing the Naval base, a sigh reserved only for fortunate people like you, and the shipping channel where you can see huge ships heading out to distant lands. While your captain merrily rolls out steamer-loads of information about different types of boats and sea vessels. Don’t forget to look out for submarines, they like to pop out for a peep every now and then.
More than just sitting around
Once you’ve got your sea feet, the captain will let each one of you handle the boat! You can relax on the deck, put your feet in the water and feel the water wash away the stress and every memory of the city.
The boats are quite fast, so you will cover quite a distance in 2 hours. You will be sailing along the harbor, which is the legal limit for leisure cruise. But you will go deep enough to see large cargo ships quite close.
Both the evening slots (4 pm and 6 pm) are very popular. As well as the early morning slot (7 am).
A lot of customers prefer this, as it is a very different experience and lets you see the city lights.
If the weather is not suitable for Sailing, 3 alternate dates will be provided or a refund of up to 90% of the experience price.
The boat’s the maximum capacity is 4 people per boat currently.
The experience is extremely safe for children as well. We have had children as young as 2 years accompany their parents. Parents or Guardians have to take full responsibility of the children.
Oh yes, the boats are very safe. Each boat equipped with life-jackets and safety staff onboard, it is also has a motor, in case the wind suddenly dies out or for any other emergency.
