DAY 01: DEPARTURE
You will be proceeding to enjoy a boat ride session in Negombo. However, the highlight of the tour is the Fishing Village where one observes the fisher folk formulating their nets for the next catch, see how the boats are launched to sea, the excess catch being splashed and sun dried to be sold as ‘dried fish’ before having a brief chit-chat with the friendly fisher folk.
Our friendly and qualified crew invite you on a unique cruising experience on the smooth waters of one of Sri Lanka’s largest coastal lagoons. Escape the hustle and bustle of Negombo town as we take you on a tropical adventure in our little fishing boat.
From the convenient dock on the historic Hamilton Canal we cruise a short distance through the heart of old Negombo town before entering the lagoon. You will get a close up view of local fishing life as we pass by the fish markets and thousands of fishing boats of all sizes ranging from small lagoon canoes to large ocean travelers.
