Join us for a relaxing boat trip around Bentota, the resort town on Sri Lanka's southwest coast.

The boat goes up the Bentota River along the beautiful mangrove banks. As you ride, spot the water monitors, various kinds of birds, and, with a bit of luck, a crocodile in the wild. Birds in the area include kingfisher, bee-eater, egrets, eagles, fruit bats, cormorants and others.

The boat will stop at a home garden where you will be given a demonstration of the coir industry, after which you can enjoy a tea or coffee and some fresh local fruit. If time permits, on the way back the boat will travel to the river mouth, a picturesque place perfect place for nature and photography enthusiasts.

Choose a morning or afternoon departure time. The insured boats hold a twin-engine and are large and comfortable with an overhead cover/canopy. They come prepared with life jackets, raincoats and first aid kits.

“The trip that my niece and I did was absolutely brilliant I cannot recommend this trip highly enough and the company H.O.T Tourism they are the best. We also had a very kind and lovely driver Aruma he was very informative We stayed in fabulous 3 and 4 star hotels with good food and service. There are quite a few of the trips that are included but we paid extra for the botanical gardens which was absolutely beautiful, the temple of the tooth in Kandy, a fabulous catamaran down the river and a safari with the elephants all very reasonably priced. The country is stunningly beautiful with paddyfields, beautiful flowered lily pads, coconut trees, banana trees and beautiful wildlife and birds.We had a great train ride to Ella which is a very trendy funky Town we, had meditation with a monk. Climbed Adams peak which is high up in the mountains and the 360° view you get from the top, we picked tea and visited a factory very interesting there was so many other things that we did the best of it was visiting the elephant rehabilitation and sanctuary.
Seeing tiny 6 week old elephants being fed and the safari was fabulous we were no more than 12 ft away from big bull elephants in the Jeep. Lovely haridra resort and spa at Wadduwa where we spent our last 4 days relaxing by a very quiet peaceful sandy beach and I can thoroughly recommend the service and the lovely food at this hotel.”
