Year Round

Madu River

The Madu Ganga river estuary is a complex coastal ecosystem protected by the International Ramsar Convention. Madu Ganga is Sri Lanka’s biggest preserved mangrove swamp, and it is home to a variety of fish and reptile species. The river travels across topography, forming 64 islands in the river.

Negombo Lagoon

The boat ride follows the Hamilton Canal, which was built by the Dutch and then reinforced by the British in 1802. The mangrove swamp, fishing village, and fishing harbor are the highlights of the boat excursion.

Gregory Lake

Amid the tea country hill city of Nuwara Eliya, this is a popular spot for boat rides, jet skis, and some recreational activities.


A boat trip on this backwater river, which is flanked by beautiful mangrove forests and fishing villages, is an unforgettable experience.
