The check-in point for the canoe cruise is near the Cheepunkal Bridge at Kumarakom. Please inform us in advance if you would like to avail our pick up and drop services. Once you reach the spot, you will first be given basic safety instructions. Our guide will then take you to the canoe.
The morning session will be in a canoe exploring the narrow canals and local life along with the breakfast. After that, we will use the Shikkara boats for the rest of the cruise. The Shikkara will have a canopy on top. So there is no need to worry about the sun’s heat. But since it is open on both sides, you will get pristine views of the backwaters as well as the villages on the shore. When it’s time for lunch, you will be taken to a backwater restaurant. Kerala style lunch is served on a banana leaf with options of vegetarian or non-vegetarian food. Fish and other seafood delicacies are usually the specialities of the backwater restaurants. We will drop you back at check-out point after a session of fly fishing and evening tea.
