River Safari Tour in Waikkal
Walk down the lanes of history, explore the day to day lives of common people, and indulge in a conversation about the Dutch colonies and spice trades – that’s exploring the famous Dutch canal (or Hamilton Canal) in a nutshell. Date back to the times when Sri Lanka was the ‘Spice Island’, and get a taste of the historic legacy of the canals.
A blend of Lifestyle and Nature
Winding amidst the Negombo lagoon you can see lines of fishing boats waiting to go into the ocean, coconut and palm trees stretched in an array, little boys and girls running astray, and regular lives going about. You can encapsulate the local culture of Sri Lanka beautifully in your photographs here.
But this river safari has more in store. As you escape the Negombo lagoon, the canal meets the tranquil blue Indian Ocean, and the view changes into stretches of sand dunes.
Enjoy the serene calmness of nature as the boat floats into spectacular views of mangroves. This area, popularly known as Maha Oya, remains uninhabited and is a natural panorama. Drift through the arrays of coconuts and palms, treat yourself to the sights of birds and animals, and ride into a tropical adventure.
