Additional Note:-

“Please be aware that natural elements are beyond our control. Occasionally, floating water plants may obstruct kayaking routes, rendering certain canals impassable. In such instances, we will guide you along an alternative route. If no alternative is available, we may need to backtrack along the same path. At times, a short walk by the canals may be necessary, during which the guide will manage the equipment. Your understanding of these occasional adjustments is appreciated as they are integral to the adventurous experience.”

“In case the kayaking conditions become challenging due to the weather, our guide will arrange a motor boat for your convenience, subject to additional charges. Hence it is recommended to choose cooler hours”

“We engage local guides who possess in-depth knowledge of the region. Nonetheless, new guides may initially exhibit shyness or uncertainty about your level of curiosity. Therefore, don’t hesitate to initiate conversation and ask questions to break the ice, fostering a more comfortable and interactive atmosphere between you and the guide.”
