Panjim ferry

We are staying in Dona Paula next month and were wondering if anyone has crossed the river by ferry and where exactly it lands on the Candolim side? also the hours it runs, is it a viable form of transport and how much a taxi would cost to Foxys restaurant from the ferry landing-cor can almost taste the Steak already!

Hi

The ferry crossing from panjim to betim runs every 20 mins from 6am to 10pm. It is free and takes less than 10 mins.

A taxi from betim to Candolim would probably cost about 400 rupees one way.

Hi, yes there is a bus to betim and panjim. It turns at the neural bridge road in candolim near to casa sea shell so you would need to get on before that turn. It comes from calangute. It cost about 10 rupees and takes around 45 mins.

mrfrostie, you can get the ferry accross to Betim as already mentioned and its an experience. When the ferry arrives there will be a mad rush. Its usually better to get in front down on the right. You'll find out. However depending upon the time of day you cross the bus is likely to be rammed full already when it gets to Betim. If you are coming up from Donna Paula a better option might be to continue to the bus station and get a Calangute bus there. You can get a seat and it will probably only add 15 mins to your journey. 15 rupees from Panjim to Calangute, 12 from the ferry. I don't know what they charge to Candolim but its not going to break the bank. If you are standing in a full bus be especially carefull if you carry anything in your pockets. I speak from experience - enough said.

Thanks for that excellent description roamers-think we might try it one way and get the bus the other way!
