The cruisers can see the toddy tappers and fishermen at work, women washing clothes, children bathing in the river and lot more trademarks of Kerala.

You get to see the R-Block which is popular of their specialized cultivation that is carried out about four to ten feet below sea level. This is done by by reclaiming land from the backwaters and building dikes around it. You get to get down at the Pathiramanal, a small island where one gets to see a hoard of migratory birds.
The guests will be served evening tea , coupled with local snacks . The package also includes dinner and the following day's breakfast.
