Boat Rides

Boating in Kolkata (Calcutta)

A fantastic way to watch the sun go down over the Hooghly River is by riding a skiff into the waters at dusk. Rowers line up their boats along the pier at Outram Ghat, and offer rides that take you under the Vidyasagar Setu bridge on a round trip from the jetty. Prices are around ₹500 for an hour's ride.
