I had one of the best experiences with Nadodi Kayaking. Me being someone who is scared of the depth of the water, their hospitality and guidance with their experience helped a lot.
The route, the colours during the kayak, the local characters I met during the journey was inspiring. Definitely a good choice to make mind and body wise ❤️

What are you waiting for?

What a fantastic experience! Had always wanted to kayak through the Alleppey backwaters and thanks to Nadodi Kayaking, I had just the best time ✨

We took the sunrise tour which started with the pickup from our hotel at 5am. It was completely dark and the sky was full with stars. Even spotted a beautiful & bright shooting star!! 🌠 We began to kayak around 5:30am and it was lovely to go through the quiet backwaters crossing so many still houseboats. Got to experience the stunning blue hour and a beautiful sunrise!

They also arranged a snack + tea break which was super nice. We returned around 8:30am with the bright sun against a pretty blue sky 🌤💙

A huge thanks to Amal for curating this experience!! 🌸 Would recommend to everyone who happens to visit Alleppey!

This was my second time with Nadodi Kayaking. Where do I begin? It was an absolute blast.

Amal was the best guide ever; he ensured we were well informed about safety, procedures and the like, and his energy was infectious, especially when we were caught in the midst of torrential rain.

I’ve already recommended them to friends and will definitely be doing this again!

Tell me more about the free backwater boating?

Since we are on an island, a boat is an only way to get here.

To get to the island, first we take a local boat to cross the river, followed by a short trek to warm you up. And after the kayaking trip, we will drop you back to the meet up point directly from our dock on a boat ride.

So bascially, you’re getting a 10 mins free backwater boating as well.

Do you have both single & double seaters?

Yes we do.

We have kayaks that one person and two people can sit on.

Is it safe to kayak in Alleppey?

Absolutely safe. And all our tours are made for beginners & first timers.

Alleppey backwaters is really a safe and amazing place to go kayaking. If you’re worried about the rain, it’s safe and even more fun to kayak when it rains.

It’s a premium half day tour, that you can get as an add on to your sunrise or sunset kayaking experience.

We will serve you authentic, home made breakfast or traditional Kerala style lunch on banana leaf, along with a locally brewed toddy tasting experience.

We will also guide you towards the depths of our island village, where you will get to see the actual local life, paddy fields and much more.

We will also show you how to catch fish our way, with a hands on experience.

We are situated at Starting Point, Punnamada.

It’s just 10 mins away from the town.
