1-Day Culture and Nature Experience

With calm waters surrounding you and the sun shining bright, explore the island’s lagoon ecosystem in a traditional canoe and indulge in a delicious crab curry cook out.

The tour begins on a traditional outrigger canoe, gliding gently over the calm waters, with your guide taking you to the best spots to see an abundance of tropical marine life. Enjoy the serenity of the lagoon as you soak up views of lush greenery and sparkling water.

Afterwards, return to the banks of the lagoon where local women will prepare a mouth-watering crab curry. The freshest catch will be cooked up in front of you, using traditional techniques and a whole lot of spices to tantalise your taste buds and create irresistible aromas. Then enjoy the feast in this picturesque spot, surrounded by natural beauty.

But this experience is not just about exploring the lagoon and enjoying a delicious meal. It is also an opportunity to connect with Sri Lanka’s culture, people and way of life. You will learn about the traditional and sustainable fishing methods used by local people, how they prepare meals and get a taste of the island’s rich flavours and the warmth and hospitality of its people.
