Goa has some of the best inland waterways and many people use ferries to commute.
The River Navigation Department of the Goa government operates all the ferries.
The ferry service is present mostly in places like Divar Island, Chorao, Vanxim and Narve where there is no access via bridge.
The ferry service is free for people and two-wheelers. Most of the ferries start operating at 6 am.
The ferry services are unique as these not only transport people, but also heavy and light vehicles.
In the evenings, the ferry rides are mesmerizing as one can enjoy sunsets while sailing.
The Madkai-Cortalim ferry crossing is the longest in Goa. The service is free for people and two-wheelers, but four-wheelers have to pay a minimal fee.
The ferries also operate special services at a little extra cost. They also accord priority for ambulances, hearse vans and wedding vehicles whenever required.
