What you can expect


1) Novices & beginners can be confident about the paddling activity as our Lead Guide will provide introductory paddling techniques and come along (in another kayak or in your kayak) for your safety should you need it. If you prefer a canoe, you may choose a 3 or 4 seater canoe instead of kayak.
2) Within 30 to 45 minutes of paddling from the launch point, you can reach sandbar. It is an ideal place for a short break/walk or photo ops or bird watching. From here, you can get a glimpse of the spillway regulator bridge that controls the inflow of seawater and outflow of Ithikkara river.
3) Paddlers can proceed from sandbar to east and pass under the railway bridge. If you're lucky or wait for a few minutes, you may be able to see a train pass by overhead in either direction.
4) Within 30 minutes passing the railway bridge, paddlers can reach a small island which is not more than 200 sqm in size. The island hosts a small temple, named Chithan Thampuran – probably the smallest island temple in Kerala.
5) Paddling 45 to 60 minutes from there to east will reach the tropical mangrove forest which is nearly beyond the reach of humans due to lack of road access to it.
6) Return to Syzygy.
