My wife and I visted Yathra by Jetwing for our anniversary (Oct 2014) and we were glad that we chose this place to celebrate. It was a unique experience and the service provided by the staff was amazing. The Captain was friendly and was happy to explained everything during the cruise. Thank you team Yathra.

Two rooms in the boat. (Accommodation for a third person can be made with prior arrangement with the management.) Even thought about an Umbrella and a torch inside... More
