The MV Kalangala that was constructed in 2006 at Port Bell and carries 100 tons of cargo, 108 people and 8 4×4 cars. For a single journey, every person pays 14,000 for first class and 10,000shs for second class and for a vehicle, 50,000-60,000 according to its length.
On August 04, 2010, the vessel stopped operating because the engine had to be repaired. This affected all the people that were using the ferry mainly the tourists, traders and the operators of the vessel who were Mulowooza & Brothers because they were losing 4million shillings each day the ferry was not operating since they had contracts from different companies.
The vessel started operating again after 5 months of repair on Friday, currently controlled by the Ministry of Works since the deal with the Mulowooza & Brothers to operate it had expired as they search for a new operator.
