The boats depart from an area that they give the name BAUPORT. It is an area that is fully allocated for use by the students with greenery and an exquisite view of the Bosporus. The boats depart at certain times of the day from their own pier and this allows for a pleasant journey between the campuses in Besiktas and Galata.
