Cochin harbour has long been recognised as a wonderful natural harbour although there are times when you watch a huge super cruise ship negotiating the narrow entrance and wonder whether it is too narrow.
Today it is still a very busy port with a new container port on Vypeen on the north side as well as the dockyard, cruise terminal and spacious naval dockyard which is home to thousands of naval officers and seamen.
The best way to see the port is to use the frequent ferry that travels between Fort Cochin and Ernakulam. This is a working passenger boat but you get a great sight as you chugg along with the commuters and locals on the way to the market.
