Ganges cruises by big boats

Hi,

I'm wondering if there are cruises on the Ganges in Varanasi? But not those small boats with one paddling person - I'm afraid of them a little bit :) .

You may hire the bigger boat which can ride 20 persons. Those are redily available in Dasaswamedh Ghat of Varanasi.

There are no cruises on Ganges at Varanasi in real sense, your only option is these boats …travelpod.com/tw_slides/ta00/bb7/62a/ganges…

I suppose that they don't have lifejackets, am I right?

It seams that I have to find other activities instead of Ganges boating.

You may ask for life jackets while you book the boat, though that doesnt require in Varanasi. The boat sails smoothly and slowly. Nothing to scare about.
