Boat club is run by a cooperative society/union of local boat owners. There are around 70-75 old fashioned, heavy engine boats allotted on serial sequence. One boat can max accommodate 12 people & they charge Rs 3000/-. It's irrespective whether you are 5 or 12, rate is fixed. After confirming the boat we have to walk to forest office & register details of all people travelling to Vasota. Forest entry fee comes to roughly Rs 100/- per person plus Rs 50/- per DSLR/ still camera. Then onwards the boat driver take us to the boarding point via a police check point where in they check for alcohol/weapons etc as a precautionary measures. All this take around 25-30 minutes & we started our boat by 7.40am. There is nothing available beyond this point hence ensure to take minimum 2 water bottles per person plus lunch & some possible snacks.
