Odisha Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik inaugurated the Silver City Boat Club in Cuttack virtually. The goal is to promote water-based recreational activities on Odisha’s largest river, the Mahanadi. The renovated boat club was built by Odisha Tourism Development Corporation (OTDC). The project required an investment of around 2 crores. The boat club’s infrastructure was destroyed by Cyclone Fani in 2019. The renovation included a booking counter, a floating jetty, a toilet complex, a children’s park, a parking space, a lifeguard complex, and a restaurant.
To promote tourism on the Mahanadi River, the Silver City Boat Club was recently established in Cuttack, Odisha. According to a Hindustan Times report, CM Naveen Patnaik stated, “We are rapidly developing tourism and hospitality infrastructure in identified areas to tap the state’s tourism potential incorporating water bodies.” “This project comes with basic infrastructure to support multiple water sports operators and promote water-based tourism offerings in Cuttack and nearby districts,” said Tourism Minister J P Panigrahi.
Jet Skis, Scuba Diving, Kayaking, Canoeing, Inflatable Boat, Banana Boat, Speed Boats, Day Cruise, Water Scooters, Pedal Boats, and other activities will be available through the boat club. For the time being, the boat club will be run by two operators. A few other operators will begin service within the next month. In addition, MP Bhatruhari Mahatab has requested that the Department of Tourism include the Maritime Museum on the Odisha Tourism Map and investigate the prospects of other tourist locations in the area.
