This is well worth it if you are interested in wildlife. All went smoothly with the pick up. We saw lovely birds, blue tailed bee eaters were my favourites, a huge water monitor and baby crocodiles. The previous day I did a trip on the lagoon with Captain F.ernando who also does a trip into this area and I cannot recommend this charming lad highly enough. The tuk tuk driver took me back to my hotel a different route and we visited the huge buddhist temple on the way, an amazing place.

I highly recommend this tour as a way see the more peaceful side of the greater Negombo area. The tuk tuk driver was friendly and on time to pick me up and take me back, although he got lost on the way and was unfamiliar with how the tickets worked. The boat tour was peaceful and beautiful. We saw a variety of birds, water monitors, flying fish, monkeys, and scenery.

An interesting trip and saw quite a few birds at close range, one even climbed on the boat!. The driver had a little trouble finding the start point, and that was the case for another visitor too. Suggest better information to the pick-up drivers.
