We hired the boat "State of the art" for 3 hours and the boat was exactly like the pictures show. The staff on the boat were friendly, helpful and attentive. They cook the food while cruising and it was delicious and fresh. Organising the boat was a breeze. Rithika was very helpful and answered all my questions promptly.
