Watching the Casting of Fishing Nets:

When you go on a sunset cruise, you can watch the local fishermen do their work. You'll be amazed at how well the fishermen are able to throw a net into the water. If your camera lets you, take a video of the event in slow motion.

Sunset View:

At the end of your trip, you'll be able to see a beautiful sunset over the open lake. Some soothing music could be a nice addition to the picture and make the whole thing even better. Canoeing through this natural scenery might only happen once in a lifetime. 

The sunset cruise in the traditional wooden canoe is a one-of-a-kind experience. It makes you feel like you are in a painting. What a great way to end the day with beautiful birds, tasty snacks, a view of the sunset, and peaceful backwaters!
