Launch Ghat

Ferry in Barisal

Numerous passenger ferries (cabin/2nd class Tk 1700/900), generally known as ‘launches’, drift slowly upriver from Barisal to Dhaka. Most leave around 8pm or 9pm, and use the main Launch Ghat, not the Rocket Ghat, which is a short walk away. From the Launch Ghat, there are also boats to Moju Chowdhury Hat (2nd/deck class Tk 455/290, five hours).
