    Stop: 2 hours - Admission included
    You will be picked up from your hotel in Negombo for a tour riding a TukTuk to Muthurajawela Wetland, and a bird watching tour by boat. Your TukTuk is a very typical form of public transport, part of the everyday street scene. On the TukTuk, you can sit and stretch out, protected from the sun, and rain, and with a great breeze. You will soon arrive at Muturajawela wetland marine sanctuary, famous for its mangroves, salt water crocodiles and avi fauna. You will take a boat ride through the vast Negombo lagoon. Extending over 6,000 acres and over 29,000, and rumored to provide home to over 40 species of migratory and 85 indigenous bird species. Mangrove forests that line the footpath are great places to observe birds as well as baby crocodiles and fiddler crabs. On completion of this visit, your TukTuk rider will take you back to the hotel.

    It was billed as a half day tour but the tour itself was only a couple of hours. Two of us were in a boat with a guide. She was knowledgable enough but as a birdwatcher, it was nothing very special. What I didn't like at all is that we saw a water monitor swimming with food in

    Response from Hiran p, Guest Relations Manager at Muthurajawela Bird Watching Tour
    Responded Jul. 10, 2019
    Dear Madam, Thank you for your review. We are very sorry to hear that you had such a frustrating experience, but we really appreciate you bringing this issue to our attention. We always aim to deliver a great experience for our clients. We did an investigation regarding this. Unfortunately, as that hunting incident is a rare incident that a client can witness, our boat rider wanted to make it visible for you and has taken the boat near to the monitor. It’s true that it directed to a kind of animal harassment. We promise to take corrective actions regarding this and advise as well as give proper training for all our boat riders to work carefully in this kind of situations. And thanks again for taking the time to bring this to our attention. We will use the feedback to make us better and to ensure this doesn’t happen again. Best Regards.
