It is just sailing on a boat seeing nice sightseeing, but, nothing special to highlight. Try not to go during the monzoon period as the rain complicates the trip. I had such an experience and it was not pleasent at all.

When we traveled in the boat the host announced that the boat service will be discontinued shortly for few months. I do not know, now boat service has been restored or not.
