It’s time for you to rejoice if you are tired of the cab hassles in Goa from the airport. Also if you think the cab drivers charge an exorbitant amount.
Now tourists can take a ferry to Panjim or Sinquerim from Goa airport as an alternative means of transport.
A new ferry terminal was opened at BainaBeach recently. You don’t have to worry about travelling to Baina Beach terminal from the airport has a shuttle service has been made available free of cost.
As most tourists prefer to stay in the North, the Sinquerim ferry comes handly. Sinquerim is located in Bardez from where you can travel further up North to Calangute, Baga, Anjuna or Vagator. This is the first phase of this project. In the second phase, the ferry services will extend up to Chapora in the North and Palolem in the South.
As an introductory offer, the tickets that otherwise cost ₹800, will cost ₹400 now. You can book the tickets online around ten days in advance or on the spot. To book the tickets online, you can visit Drishti Ferry‘s website – the operator that runs ferries on these two routes.
The ferry services begin usually at 8:30 a.m. in the morning, with a total of three runs on each route. It takes 25mins to reach Sinquerim from the Airport Ferry Terminal and 50mins to reach Panjim. You can also hop on a ferry from Panjim to Sinquerim and the other way round.
These ferries are useful for those travelling as a couple, solo or for those who prefer the scenic route. Otherwise, for groups, cabs are a cheaper option.
