A different sort of cruise shore excursion

It was easy to find our guide at the port entrance. We were taken to the Chinese nets first because they only operate at high tide. Our guides explained the fishing nets and organised for those who were interested to have a go at raising the net. The trip to the houseboat pier takes between 1.5 and 2 hours. We had some explanation of the history of the area on the way there. There were 27 people on our tour and we were divided into two groups on two houseboats. There was plenty of room and seating. We were out on the backwaters for just under two hours. It was very interesting to see life along the backwaters. Lunch was served on board: rice, vegetables, a chicken curry and delicious fried whole fish. Plenty of food for all, but you eat with the plate on your lap, which worked OK. The trip back to port (again 1.5 to 2 hours) provided an opportunity for many to snooze. Those at the front could ask questions of the guides. It was a pity they didn't move around the bus. However, it was a highlight of my cruise and a different sort of shore excursion..

Fantastic day

It's a MUST if you want to see what life is really like in this part of India. Great guide and driver (how does he do it?) Air Conditioned mini bus from the cruise terminal. The journey took over an hour and a half on busy roads and populated villages but what an experience. Stopped to see an elephant at a Buddhist temple and then boarded the House boat with two other couples. Amazing two hours on the river seeing wildlife, countryside and people washing and bathing. Lovely local dishes served for lunch before setting off for the journey back calling at Cochin Fort area and the Chinese fishing nets. It's a must do and big thanks to the guide Ram ? driver, boat crew and Viator for a fabulous day.
