We boarded the boat on Dec 30 at around 1 PM and left on Dec 31 at around same time. Starting from pick up from our place to boarding, sight seen, lunch, visiting place like pakhiralaya, evening snacks, dinner, real life experience share which is bonus from captain Mr. Pranab who spent his entire life in Sundarban. Mr. Monty also shared his experiences with brilliant photographs. We were all together 11 and enjoyed to the fullest. All crew members always had smiling faces, very friendly. Upper deck was excellent and they took care of our demand and expectation always. Rooms were clean and sufficient to accommodate us, bathroom was also very clean. Probably most memorable moments we spent after 6 AM in next day when our boat started and navigated through narrow strip where all eyes were looking for tigers, crocodile, birds etc. Unfortunately we could not see any tiger but we spent quality time, enjoyed and spent as family along with all crew members. Many of us traveled many places but this one touches our mind and heart and got the inspiration to have another trip in the same boat with same set of crew members in future. Thanks to all crew members and management team who had arranged for us. Mr Swaroop Biswas with whom we communicated from beginning is very nice person and handled all our queries very well.

This is one of those rare occasions when you get what you are promised - excellent crew, excellent guide, excellent food and unbelievable accommodation considering it is a small vessel that we were staying in. Although we were two too many, they arranged extra mattresses and put us up on the deck making us as comfortable as possible. All of our whims were honoured with smiles and they offered a few pleasant surprises as well. It seems too expensive, but when you look at the level of service and cleanliness - the other boats generally are at best satisfactory, particularly the toilets - the amount makes sense. The only thing is that they do not take you into the extreme interiors - and they do not promise to do so - but they have a great record of animal sightings. We did not see much, but we were still quite happy because we were looking for relaxation, fun and quality time, and the crew made all that possible. Highly recommended if you are looking for a good time on a boat.

We booked the whole boat for 13 friends. We were picked up dot on time from Kolkatta and in about 3 hours were at the boat. The boat was neat, tidy and the employees were very friendly. Monty the manager of the boat, was extremely helpful, sporting and made the trip a wonderful experience. Food was very well prepared and the tastiest food we had in our whole 4 days trip. The boat also had board games and fishing rods available.

We saw birds, crocodiles, deers and a tiger. (Pic attached).

Overall the trip was amazing and is highly recommended.
