Elephanta caves.

You have to reach Gateway of India and there are ferry boats taking you to Elephanta caves. To avoid rush, please reach there before 9.

The ferry rates are displayed on the board (I do not remember, but not much.)

It takes about 45 minutes or so one way.

Takes about 1 to 2 hours to see the caves and journey back say max 1 hour

By lunch time you would be back to Gateway of India.

You do not get meals at Elephanta island. At least I did not see any.

Last but not the least, keep amla supari or clove (lavang) handy with you in case you get vomiting sensation because of rough sea and smell of diesel. So choose a seat away from the engine room to avoid the smell. That is the reason we avoid travelling by ferry immediately after lunch.
