moving on the bay of sea side was really exciting and wonderful experience of sea side breeze. You could see fresh and live fish caught by fisherman and have a nice time going across the with a coconut water to quench ur thirst

Innovative mode of fishing & very enthralling to watch huge boats pass by in the background on the way to port. Compared to my earlier visit, looks like a garbage dump & did not dare eat the fish caught by locals!

An excellent site especially at the time of sunset, the place is very picturesque during the sunset, with the sun setting at the horizon in perfect background for the fishing nets, a sight I would love to remember. A busy market during the morning with people flocking to buy fishes.

It was great to see them working and for a small tip a fisherman will take you onto one and show you how they work too. Nice little market around the nets and a great view of the mouth of the lake and the sea.

I, as a Kochinite staying around six Kms away from Fortcochin, on going through the comments mainly by tourists who visit Chinese Nets at Fortcochin, on the pages of Trip Advisor which we all try to maintain truthfully, having realized many of their assumptions not very true and misguiding, thought of coming out with my own comments. These Chinese nests... More

We saw Chinese fishing net in fort Cochi near Vasco the gama Church. It was a different experience to see the Chinese net , but the localite charged any amout of money just to show its operation. So tourist need to be careful. Even coconut water was charge Rs. 35 per peice.

Great to see how they fished and still are fishing with this old method. Fresh fish along the boardwalk to buy and have cooked at local restaurants, although we did not do that.
