Houseboat or Country Boat Backwater Tour

The best way to experience the famous backwaters is to hire a gorgeous Houseboat or ‘Kettuvallom’ that have become a defining image of Kerala.  We can recommend the best mid range and luxury operators and arrange a houseboat trip for you on the nearby backwaters of Alleppey which is only 20 minutes drive from Marari. You can also visit the Alleppey Boat Jetty and choose a boat for yourself if you prefer.  There are a wide variety of Houseboats on offer within a considerable price range, depending on facilities and season.


House Boats (Kettuvallom) 

Mid season prices are approximately Rs 12,000 for Deluxe and Rs 16,000 -23,000 for Premium boats. Prices for the December/January peak period are up to 50% more and the main backwater routes are crowded, so the essence of the tranquil backwater experience is somewhat lost.  We can recommend a Houseboat that will take you off the beaten track and suggest to go for 2 day cruise in the Peak Season.


Country Boats

We really recommend a Country boat tour as an alternative to an overnight houseboat trip. These are smaller boats with chairs and a roof that can travel in the smaller canals. You can choose whether to use an engine or travel in the traditional silent way with long poles as a punt or with wooden paddles. Half day and full day tours are available with local lunch and snacks at approx Rs. 500 per hour.



If you’re feeling more energetic and adventurous, then we can arrange a kayak trip through the backwaters. The rate is approx Rs. 1500 per hour. Please discuss with us at least 24 hours in advance.
