Muttukadu Boat House, Chennai Reviews

  • Good place to visit... Well maintained in a metro City... The boat charges are very nominal.. Motorboat will cost you approx 100 per person for a 3km boat ride.. The row boat will cost you around 75 per person for 1 km boat ride.. safe jacket is provided for everyone.. But they are not well maintained, all mostly worn out and torn and buckles broken.. there is a huge rest hall.. Few stalls with snacks..Overall a good experience.. More beautiful when you go around sunset..

  • It is a nice place just few minutes from the Chennai city on the ecr road. Boating is good. They have motor boats, Motor bikes and rows boats as well. We can see lot of birds in the water while boating. It is better to visit in the evening time to escape from the heat. Kids will enjoy. There is a snacks centre , small eating space and toilets are available.

  • A nice place to go on weekends with family or friends. Boats are available for 2, 3 ,4 ,6 and 8 people. Never give extra money for boat riders.(If you have the habit of giving tips you can give). Everyone should wear life jacket. Water is not much clean so do not touch or play with water.

  • Boating in the backwaters. Paddle boats not available. Only row and motor boats available. Avoid going in the afternoons. The tide rises in late afternoon and the weather improves a lot. Good boating spot near Chennai

  • It’s an onetime hangout spot with adequate parking facility. The main and only attraction here is boating. While it might be attractive to people who have never went on a boat trip before, it is simply a small boat trip on the choice of your boat(row, motor or water scooter) all manned by a driver, the depth of water is less than 5 feet so nothing to be worried about, the fun factor of the short boat trip(20 mins) depends on your co-passengers and your creativity. Not many attractions for photo shoot, few common birds are found around which is not very interesting as well. There is an attached restaurant where you get decent food, you get all basic amenities for a tour spot here, they open by 10am which is the perfect time to explore the spot, it gets crowded from there on. The place is well maintained and looks good, except for the banks which can be kept better. Also watch out for the gimmick pulled by the driver of the boat, where he says this is the allowed limit but if you pay extra I can go a bit longer, you end up paying to extend few mins, just track the time you start and at what point he says this, you pay a very good sum for the duration. Tipping is fine, provided you have fun.
