    Starts from Babughat Jetty

    Kolkata by the river is a cruise known to have been born on the bank of Great River Ganges. It will be a sail down the memory lane, from the time when Job Charnock dropped his first anchor at Cossim Bazar. Framed between the two steel structures of Vidyasagar Setu and the magnificent Howrah Bridge, very old landmarks from the days of the British Raj, there are numerous ghats that relate to us of Kolkata's past and present life. Princep Ghat, Gwalior Ghat, Outram Ghat, Kashi Mitter Ghat, Sova Bazaar, Kumartuli ghat, Bag Bazar, Maratha Ditch to name a few.

    The vessel casts off from Babughat Jetty. It sails down the Howrah Bridge, the unique cantilever Bridge across the river Ganga joining the two metropolises of Kolkata and Howrah.

    It also sails past the Howrah Railway Station, one of the busiest in the world, and various heritage sites on the banks of the great river, including numerous temples and bathing ghats, the historical point of arrival of Job Charnock, the House of Dolls, the Nimtolla Ghat, the oldest Gun and Shell Factory in India at Casipore.
