Kerala Kayaking Reviews & Ratings
The experience was wonderful, great to see the backwaters from the kayak. We were picked up on time for the morning sunrise trip and taken to the location for the activity. We felt safe with Sam, he is very experienced and knowledgable of the local area. He provided good nuggets of information of the areas we kayaked around, wildlife and plants/trees. We would recommend this activity for those who want a more personal experience of the backwaters compared to doing the houseboats and for those who aren’t afraid of doing some exercise. It is a better environmentally friendly way to experience the backwaters too! Improvements: their website could be updated, a quick health and safety talk prior to jumping in the kayaks may have been useful & that gentle arms stretches prior to starting the activity would have been useful :)
The tour itself is a good idea if you want to catch a glimpse of the more intimate life of the locals inhabiting the backwaters. Indeed the smaller canals cannot fit the abominable houseboats and are so much quieter. A shikkara boat will follow you around and there will be snacks and lunch provided. The tour guide himself, Samson, is very knowledgeable about the surroundings and open-minded who can easily hold a quality conversation on any topic regarding Indian culture. Would 100% recommend!
Great day out with Kerela Kayaking! Samson is a great guide and tailor makes the day for you. He’s full of fascinating info about the waterways, wildlife, plant life and all things Kerela and India in general. On the Kayaks you get to explore the smallest of backwaters and really see local life. We stopped for a delicious lunch at a small restaurant on the waterways and then later on in the afternoon some great snacks. A motorboat meets you along the way to give you a break from the kayaking and the sun and heat which is a great touch. Would highly recommend a tour with these guys! We had a great day and again Samson is a credit to the tour 👌🏼
We had a great full day tour today with Kerala kayaking. Kayaked some very narrow secluded backwater, combined with stretches on the more common waterways on their very comfortable boat. Guide was of much added value to teach us about nature and local customs. We would recommend this very much, a great alternative to the busy and expensive live a boards!!!
Natural view is good. But the water resources are polluted by the boat owners. The authorities have to look upon it.
