We had a fantastic family sunset boat ride recently and really enjoyed it. Captain Fernando explained everything happening in the lagoon and we were amazed by his knowledge. Speak fluent English and very friendly person. Recommend to anyone who visit Negombo
The best experience you can have in Negombo. Bookings made by just making a call. Pickup from and back to the hotel provided. At 3500 LKR, this cruise experience was worth every penny. The cruise starts from the Dutch canal and moves into the lagoon. Cruise through the mangroves was a great experience. You get to get down on an island have a King Coconut and to top it all watch the sunset while standing in the middle of the lagoon. The best guides will be with you to explain everything in detail and keep you entertained. Tip: Go for the sunset cruise.
