“Beautiful ride”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 11, 2013

The ferry ride was a beautiful experience.We could spot more animals and birds in an hour than the full day jeep safari,We took the 9:00 am trip so we dint have to wait for the ticket.we were told that for early morning trips its too crowded and you have to queue up an hour before.
Overall a must go ride.

“Not worth the detour”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 1, 2013

For anyone who has been on a safari, this is definitely not worth it. If you are in the area (without detour), then you should stop. Otherwise skip. We saw very few animals. The lifejacket is annoying. I was lucky, one of the boat attendants borrowed my canera and took a few good pictures.

As we were on our way to MAdurai I don't regret the stop but certainly not worth a detour.

“Good experience”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 29, 2013

The blue water with the blackish dead trunks, the yellowish land and the green trees make it an absolute scenic beauty. I only wish the lake boat trip was a little longer than the stipulated 1.5hrs and took us a little more towards the interiors
