What it looks like after months and months of waiting, Dabolim Airport in Goa finally has its own ferry terminal. In fact it is already showing two of its catamarans that connect Dabolim Airport to Panjim and Sinkim a few miles to the north. Union Minister for Road Transport and Highways, Shipping and Water Resources, River Development and Ganga Rejuvenation Nitin Gadkari launched the terminal only last week and also announced that more connections are in operation.
Located on Baina Beach, this ferry terminal is just 5 km from the airport. The great part is that the terminal is accessible by a Shuttle service that is free!
