In the late afternoon, you’ll be picked up from your Kochi hotel by your guide in a private, air-conditioned vehicle. Then, make your way to Marine Drive, where a small cruise ship will be docked and ready for boarding.
Your 1.5-hour private sunset cruise will take you on the waterways of Kochi Harbour, offering picturesque seaside views of the Kochi skyline including Fort Kochi and Bolgatty Island. As you slowly make your way out onto the Arabian Sea, listen to your guide’s informative commentary and gain insight into the cosmopolitan nature of this region, including the importance of the Kochi shipyard to the city’s trade industry and the many influences of Portuguese culture sprinkled throughout the city.
Though no food or drinks are available on the boat, you’re welcome to bring your own snacks and drinks to enjoy as you soak in the gorgeous sunset and admire views of Bolgatty Island's exotic beaches. See Willingdon Island, host to the Kochi Naval Base, and spot one of the most prominent features of the city, the Chinese fishing nets, which stretch 65 feet (20 meters) out over the sea.
After disembarking, you’ll be taken back to your hotel.
