Ferry Away: Holiday Homes 90 Minutes From Mumbai

Planning a getaway to Alibaug but worried about the 4-hours drive? Fret not, because the quickest way to reach Bombay’s favourite holiday destination is now open. Ferries plying from The Gateway of India, Mumbai to Mandwa Jetty, Alibaug have officially resumed operations today and what better time to head out than this festive season? Imagine reaching your holiday home in less than the duration of a Bollywood flick. That’s right. Jet, set and go to Alibaug within 90 minutes and start your vacation with a bang!

There are 3 modes of water transport that you could opt for based on your budget and group size: Very large groups on a tight budget could hitch a ride either way in a Ferry for as low as 100 INR, while slightly smaller groups, with a higher budget could opt for a Catamaran starting from 500 INR. For a close knit group with no restrictions, booking a private speed boat from Mumbai to Alibaug is a great alternative, both faster and more efficient.

And while you are in Alibaug, here is a list of homes you could stay at with your family and friends:
