Cruise along the historic Hamilton Canal through the heart of old Negombo town and observe the day to day life of the local folk. You will get a close up view of local fishing life as we pass by the fish markets and thousands of fishing boats of all sizes. Your guide will share the stories of our traditional lifestyle and explain the natural environment as we drift along past a wilderness of coconut palms, mangrove forests, all sorts of birds and marine life. If you take the sunset cruise you may be able to catch the traditional prawn fishermen setting their nets for the night’s work ahead.
