Know More about this tour

You will be picked up from your hotel in Bentota, Beruwela, or Ahungalla by TukTuk and transfered to Balapitiya. Tuk Tuk is a very typical vehicle in some parts of Asia. It is considered a classical form of public transportation and part of our everyday street scene. It is the three-wheeled, slightly ratty-looking vehicle, the TukTuk, dubbed in honor of its typical crackling two-stroke engine noise. You can sit and stretch out. You will be protected from the sun and rain by the flap and get a great breeze as you zip along. The ride is safe and comfortable with a little excitement.

First stop on your tour- discover the unique beauty of Maduganga nature on a boat trip with fishing. Mangrove vegetation lines up on the riverbed and occasional islets emerge as the river flows into the sea. Further upstream, you can see kraal-fishing constructions and fishermen making their way in rowing boats to collect their catch of the day. The occasional blue kingfisher flits in the vicinity of the kraal, a pond heron stands tall in the water, and other wetland birds have arisen from their slumber.

Next, you will have a chance to go fishing in the lagoon. Here you can engage with the traditional ways of fishing with rods. Refreshment will be provided during the boat trip, and afterwards, you will enjoy lunch or BBQ dinner on an Island. Later, you will returned back to your hotel.
