The warship converted to museum and it is open on weekends only which is located near Gate Way of India.It is a very massive aircraft carrier and the feel you get when you are on it is something that can't be defined.

You can take a ride on a motor launch, for a short cruise that takes you around the harbor- around the now decommissioned aircraft carrier INS Vikrant, or one that heads out to the 9th century Elephanta caves.
