About
Start the tour by setting off on a thrilling catamaran ride into the deep blue ocean and learn fishing in both traditional and modern ways, and catch fish on your own. After that, visit the busy Negombo fish market called the ‘Lellama’ and watch the boats returning with their catch of fresh fish, crab, lobster, prawns, and squid. You can also buy your own selection of fish to add to the seafood platter at lunch. For lunch, you will be taken to a restaurant where you can either watch the chef prepare the seafood platter for you or you can join him in cooking the fish you bought! Your city visit will be done during this time as well. After that, you can enjoy the delicious seafood platter. After lunch, you will set off on a boat ride in the Negombo Lagoon, which is fed by a number of rivers and a canal. The lagoon has an expansive mangrove swamp.

    Negombo Fish Market
    Stop: 50 minutes
    3.30 a.m., while most of the country is shrouded in sleep, the Negombo Lellama is filled up with people who are selling and bargaining over fish. It is a vibrant, noisy, and busy place throughout the day. The fish market is close to the Dutch Fort and can be spotted across the lagoon bridge, known as Munnakare Bridge. About 4000 boats go to sea from here every single day. The legendary “lellama” is only closed on Sundays because most of the fishermen in the area being catholics, attend church.

Not what was sold
The tour was only for someone to drive you around. The driver was lovely but the overview details going on a catamaran ride, which you don't. It details watching people fish and then you can watch your food being cooked. None of this happened.

Our driver was lovely and showed us to a temple, a church and a fish market. We ended the tour going to a lagoon which cost extra. Like I said this only pays for a driver.

The lagoon was polluted by plastic and the boat driver threw plastic into the already polluted.

If this review was based on the driver then five stars but this is misleading!

We want to thank you for the review and we can explain this issue. Boat ride charges are not included for this package as we informed. Our tour price is LKR 5,614.35 and we have to pay around LKR 6000.00 for a Boat ride. It is a mistake we are not mentioned in our product details. Boat driver is not our team member (employee) or related to our company. Our driver took you to extra places even which are not mentioned in the tour destinations. Our deep regret for the embarrassment that has occurred during the tour and we will take quick action to make this tour more enjoyable to travelers. Kind Regards!
