You will be starting your tour shortly after dawn, at 7:00 am, near the Boatyard in front of Muthurajawela Sanctuaries. If you select the evening tour on the other hand you will be starting at 3:00 pm. However, keep in mind that the morning slot gives you an increased chance of seeing rarer birds. Your boat will pick you up along with your bird guide.

As you pass along the banks of the waterway, you will notice the diversity of the marshes with the various types of lush plants that line the banks, such as mangroves, palms, various lactic and marsh flora. While watching quietly, with minimal disturbance to nature, you will be able to see the many species of birds flocking to the water to quench their thirst, catch fish or eat the fruit and seeds of nearby plant life. You will be able to consult your nature guide on their identification and information.


Comfortable walking shoes recommended for this tour. Drive time may change due to unpredictable road traffic. Photography stops on the way can be arranged but within locations with reasonable parking areas.
