Early morning cruise–8.00am to 10.00am

Cruise in the cool of the morning when the birds are most active and fishing boats are returning from the sea. The shores of the lagoon are buzzing with activity as hundreds of fishing families deliver their catch to the fish markets and wash their nets along the beach.

Mid-morning cruise – 10.30am to 12.30pm

Enjoy the breeze and bright sunshine of the late morning on the lagoon. We will check out the many day fishermen casting their nets as we cruise to the open water of the lagoon. Cruise beside the sailing boats as they make their way out to the sea. You will see a wide range of water birds, waders and the gull colony on the sand flats according to the tides and the season.

Sunset cruise – 4.30pm to 6.30pm

Relax as you experience the rich colours of the sunset at the inlet of the lagoon as the sun goes down in the Indian Ocean. In the twilight we will watch the traditional prawn fishermen setting their nets for the night’s work ahead. We will be back to the dock before it gets too dark.
