Everything you need to know to hop on the luxurious M2M ferry from Mumbai to Mandwa, Maharashtra.
If you’re from Maharashtra, most of you must have been to Alibaug. Alibaug is a popular weekend destination in Maharashtra from Mumbai and Pune. However, the ride from Mumbai to Alibaug is not so pleasant.
The tiring ride from Mumbai to Alibaug just got shorter by approximately 3 hours. The M2M ferry sails between Mumbai Port to Mandwa Port in just 1 hour. I wanted to try the Ro-Ro car ferry service which was launched in March 2020 but was anchored because of Covid-19.
M2M Luxurious Ferry from Mumbai to Mandwa
We chose a weekday to ride on the M2M Ferry on my Triumph Tiger, to avoid the crowd. As expected, the ferry is huge with premium class facilities. It starts from Bhaucha Dhakka and ends at Mandwa Port within 60 minutes.
M2M Ferries have different slots throughout the day depending on the number of bookings. You can book your tickets on their website. It runs all days of the week and throughout the year. The staff promised us the ferry ride during rains is incredible. The ship sails whether or not it rains and is operational 365 days a year.
