Kovalam to Cochin by boat

Can I reach from Kovalam til Alleppey by bus, and on to Cochin by local boat in one day? Or is it too much? How do I get the timetable in april 2013.

Yes you could easily get bus from kovalam to alleppey.it will take minimum 3 to 4 hrs and you could enjoy back water house boat in alleppey but there is few boat from alleppey to cochin .but dont worry.. lots of bus are there it will take minimum 2 to 3 hrs.its cheap and cool....but from your question its my understanding that u need to experiance boat ride ( its a must do if you are in kerala it worth the time..if you hire one house boat from alleppey its a half day or full day trip including everything...)but it will not go to cochin. for that you should get a bus which is available all time.if you are not looking for a boat ride yes its only 4 to 5 hr fromkovalam to cochin.you could get direct bus from kovalam to cochin.or just do one small de tuor to thiruvananthapuram (trivandrum).from there you could get direct bus and train to cochin .
