Mumbai-Goa sea route could be revived in 2017!

Goan authorities had announced that the sea link between Mumbai and Goa will be revived by 2015. A lot has happened since then; recent reports suggest that Catamaran services might start on the Mumbai-Goa sea route by the month of April in 2017. There have been mentions in the reports of the vessel being a fully loaded air-conditioned luxury liner with a capacity of 200-300 passengers.

The ferry makes stops along the way at Dighi in Raigad, Dabhol & Jaigad in the Ratnagiri District, Vijay Durg and Malvan, before docking at Panjim docking station.

The Mumbai to Goa sea route service was discontinued in 2004. Several people living in Mumbai and Goa will reminisce traveling aboard the steamers Konkan Sevak & Konkan Shakti. A one-way trip would take seven hours of picnicking, chugging through the stunning Konkan coast. Once the passengers settle down one group would start a singing session and another group would take out guitars and food would be shared.

Late into the 80’s the steamer service was stopped and in the 90’s they were replaced by smaller Scandinavian built catamarans. Later the service became economically unviable and was discontinued.

Keep your fingers crossed and if all goes well, around this time next year, you could sail to Goa!
