Catamaran Ride, in Sri Lanka's Lakes

Take an early morning catamaran ride on Polonnaruwa’s Parakrama Sea, one of Sri Lanka’s ancient man-made lakes. These man-made lakes (tanks) are known as ‘wevas’ and were created to provide irrigation. It’s a fun, friendly experience to wait alongside the wives and young children of fisherman, who’ve gone out to retrieve their fishing nets laid out the night before – a great way to get to know village folk.

After the fishermen have sorted their catch, it’s time to head out on a catamaran across the lake; a real adventure! You may even be able to spot white bellied fish eagles, brahmini kites, ibis, cormorants and other native birds. In the middle of the lake is a small island, a rocky outcrop that provides great 360° views of the lake and forests beyond.
