Waste of money, no red crab, they are doing fraud on stones all are fake we trust but they have complete team and they are doing fraud I have very bad experience udia people are very bad shop keepers are very rude , mandir pandits are very greedy, boat are very costly and waste of time and money, stones are fake they show you like they are giving you directly from seep but all are fake. The only one think which I like hospital are very good and treatment and medicine are free when we go for medical emergency. I will not recommend to anyone. Just go to Puri temple for the jaganath bhagwan darshan and come back if you are planing. Again I am saying peoples are very greedy and not trustable. Jai Jagannath

Lake is beautiful but be careful about pearl selling place.
It's my personal experience .If you select private boat from entry point first they will take to Dolphin point and next they will take to one island where local people will be seen with full of sea shelfs.Later they start explaining how pearl will be generated and show you the demo also
By seeing that one will be mesmerized and show interest in buying.They will say cost of one pearl is 600 to 1000 where as original price of such low quality pearl is 50 Rs.
I have never seen such big scam .Attaching video for your reference.I don't know why Odisha Government has not taken any actions on that...

3 to 4 hours journey and costed 4200. It is boring to travel by boat for few hours to see just glimpse of Dolphin.
If you go, carry water bottle, snacks to enjoy in the boat.
Red crab island - someone just come and show to 2 - 3 crab in basket. He will show you many precious stones - we did not purchased any. It seems fake as per many you tube/other reviews
Overall, not worth to spend one day and 4 K

Satapada is famous for dolphins.But with blink of eyes the dolphin(s) appears.This is because a lot of tourists come here and went inside chilika with hired boats, which make very loud noise.When so many such boats comes to one place then obviously the dolphins may get scared. Whereever, a glimpse of dolphin seen, all the boats rush towards there. But if you don’t spot dolphins then many birds are here who will follow you if you drop foods for them.The specific food is available near the boat point.If you really want to spot dolphins then better to go during off season.
