We went for a 30-minute row boat ride. At 10 in the morning, it was already pretty hot, but the breeze was refreshing. Passing under the ECR was especially fun... The place is good, but facilities could be better. And it will be good if they open sooner (6 or 7AM) when it would be much more pleasant.

Untreated sewage introduction to this serene waterbody made this important ecosystem into another sewage channel of chennai. I wonder how they organise in boat trips in this waters. Save water body and make it again a livable space for countless flora and fauna, which once flourished

This is located in between enroute to pondy or Mahabalipuram from Chennai. One can take this boat ride while travelling towards Pondicherry or Mamallapuram. It sure does worth the time spent. They do offer a lot of water sport activities and if you are person of interest of boating, go ahead without any questions. Staffs are good and helpful.
