Full description
Begin your day at 8:00 AM at Madu River in Balapitiya for a boat safari. For one-hour, journey through the primitive depths of the mangrove marshes. Traverse the dark and dangerous caverns, formed by the thick mangrove forests, interspersed with stretches of bright open water.  The next destination is an outdoor fish massage parlor. Dangle your feet into a fenced section of the river to get treated to a massage by the fish. After, visit Galle Fort in Sri Lanka, which is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Galle Fort, or Dutch Fort as it is also known, is a fortification built by the Portuguese on the Southwestern coast of Sri Lanka. The final destination is the Ahangama fishing village for a stilt fishing photo shoot.

    AMAZING! We couldnt have asked for more in a day. Our first spot was Bentota beach for some adventure sports. We were so lucky to spot a crocodile resting on the shores of the river while we went speed boating. Next we stopped at the turtle conservation centre and learned about turtles and were lucky enough to meet some newly born turtles. From there we headed for the Madu river boat ride. The river safari was adventurous and lots of fun. Next and the last stop was Galle Fort. Loved every second spent in this beautiful UNESCO heritage site. Overall super satisfying experience. Loved each bit of it. Aarun was the best guide we could have asked for. 5 stars for the whole tour.
