What Is It?

Winter’s finally here! Hitch a ride with local fishermen at Chowpatty to experience a sunrise like never before.

Sail Your Way Into Sunrise!

Loving the winter? Well its about to get a whole lot better! Head to Chowpatty at 7am to hitch a ride with local fisherman. Finding them could be a little tricky sometimes, but it helps if you think of the whole thing as a real life version of Pokemon Go. You can travel with them to your hearts content {or till you get seasick} on their boats for as low as a INR 100. And trust us, a breathtaking sunrise awaits.

With the humidity not playing villain, this little adventure is the perfect way to start your day. All you and your buddies need is a hoodie and you’re good to go {don’t forget to charge your camera though}. As beautiful as Mumbai is, believe it or not, it gets even more beautiful during sunrise. You’ve hung out at Marine Drive enough, now here’s your chance to see it from the other side. We assure you it’s, if not more, equally beautiful!

How Do I Go For This?

160117_chowpattyboatride01Along Chowpatty you’ll find loads of fishermen preparing to set sail 7am onwards. Embrace the Indian within and approach them – they should take around INR 100 for a satisfactory ride. Local fishermen start their days early so if you intend to catch the sunrise, head to Chowpatty at or before 7am {the sun rises around 7:15am}.

So We’re Saying…

This makes for a perfect date with your loved one or camera, or both. If you haven’t uploaded an Instagram post in a while, then things are about to change!

#LBBTip: Head to Cafe New York after for some delicious breakfast and a couple of beers.
