Digha, West Bengal’s beach town, will soon have creek cruises for tourists, mostly around Durga Pooja. For people who did not get it, these cruises will be similar to the ones we already have in the Sundarbans.

The creek nestled off the Bay of Bengal is away from the rough waters of the sea, which makes it the perfect spot. The new creek cruises will begin from the Nayakali temple and move towards the inland. The temple is just 4km away from the Old Digha. 

The cruise will last for an hour, and for now, we will offer two cruise trips every day. The cruise vessel will be capable of accommodating about 80 passengers. It will set out from the jetty point, which is near the Nayakali temple.

This new creek cruise service in Digha is expected to bring in more tourism, especially during the Durga Puja. The mangroves here do not get much exposure from tourists, but with these new cruise services, people will get to know more about them. 

Digha is known for its pristine beaches and is located on the shores of the Bay of Bengal. With its captivating beauty, it is surely a must-visit town in West Bengal. It is one of the most popular weekend destinations in Odisha and Kolkata. 

Reaching here will not be much of an issue as it is well connected with Kolkata and other cities in West Bengal by roadways and railways too.  (As per Times Travel)
