  • Took a boat ride for one hour. It was excellent and beautiful with natural greenery and huge trees in back waters . The atmosphere was such that we felt that we are in a different world for few minute...  more »
  • The drive through the river arms was beautiful. There are many birds that can be seen up close. Near the villages, many Indians have in the river. We made a short stop at Poovar Beach. Was ok, but nothing special. The drive through the backwaters was very interesting.

  • Enjoyed the boat ride. Worth the visit if travelling to Trivandrum. I selected this company given high rating basis high quantum of reviews. It was also convenient to be able to pay in advance via card the day before. However the service did not reflect the high rating. The boat was a bit run down, with peeling paint and life jackets were very old, some with missing buckles. Our boat captain was courteous but offered little commentary due to lack of English. In short there is nothing which distinguishes this service from others operating in the area. My suggestion is to check price in advance and simply go with the provider offering the lowest price.
  • Awesome place. Nice island. Near to beach. But entry fee are too high. Not worth it.Awesome place to refresh and enjoy.. peaceful beautiful and very nice boating inside forest and back waters. Will connect to beach and nice place to relax and enjoy. Have to travel some distance from Tiruvanantapuram by bus or Auto to reach this place . Nice place to family and friends trip .. floating hotels are very good where fish food are very famous. And boating facility is available. This will connect to Arabian sea beach which is a good place to enjoy and relax. Awesome place to refresh and enjoy.. peaceful beautiful and very nice boating inside forest and back waters. Will connect to beach and nice place to relax and enjoy.
