After entering the food delivery business through Uber Eats, the global taxi aggregator has announced that it will now provide boat services around Mumbai.

In partnership with the Maharashtra Maritime Board, the newly launched service, UberBOAT will cover the already existing ferry routes around the seas of Mumbai. 

Uber will deploy speedboats to connect the Gateway of India to Elephanta Islands and Mandwa Jetty that connects Alibaug to Mumbai.

The rides are currently available at INR 5,700 (US$80) for UberBOAT (6-8 seater speed boat) and INR 9,500 (US$134) for BOAT XL (10+ seater speed boat) for all these routes.
