Overview
What to Expect
07.00 AM - You will be greeted and picked up by our driver from most closely located hotels in Negombo and then taken to explore Galle Fort. The Galle Dutch Fort is a seventeenth-century colonial fort in Sri Lanka. It stands on a rocky promontory facing the Indian Ocean. Rocky shores and an imposing landside rampart defend it on all four directions. It was the Portuguese who chose Galle as a permanent trading post in 1588.

12.00 PM - After the Fort visit, you will be taken to a local restaurant to enjoy your lunch.

01.00 PM - Thereafter, you will enjoy a scenic boat ride in Balapitiya Madu River. The water of the river is dotted with small islands and the banks are all covered with lush mangrove forests that are home to dozens of incredible animal species. Enjoy hundreds of vibrant tropical birds and a few crocodiles if you’re lucky enough.

03.30 PM - After the boat ride, you will be able to visit a Turtle Rehabilitation Centre. In here, you will learn about how these people protect sea turtle eggs and increase hatching rates. Start from protecting the mother turtle during the nesting process and when she is finished laying the eggs and safely back in the ocean, then relocate the eggs from the beach to there hatchery. When the baby sea turtles hatch and then return them to their natural habitat quickly.

05.00 PM - After the Hatchery visit, you will be taken back to your hotel in Negombo.
