Sightseeing tourist boat from Kollam to Alleppey

Hope someone can help out please.

My wife and I both in our 60's want to travel in February to Alleppey.

Do we need to reserve seats for the trip?

What time should we arrive to get the boat please. We will be travelling from Varkala.

We will have two suitcases.Can we store them on board?

Should we purchase food and drinks before travel or can we obtain on board or at a stop?

How much is the trip for me and my wife please?

Dear Tim,

Do we need to reserve seats for the trip?

-you can get your ticket on arrival at the Kollam boat jetty , just next to the KSRTC bus station

What time should we arrive to get the boat please. We will be travelling from Varkala.

-10:30AM the boat departs , so to be safe , as you need to get your tickets as well , you can be there an hour before ( atleast!)

We will have two suitcases.Can we store them on board?

-yes , you can take them on board

Should we purchase food and drinks before travel or can we obtain on board or at a stop?

The stop for lunch and tea , but also you could carry some snacks , if you want

How much is the trip for me and my wife please?

- It would be approx INR 300

HiNeenu-Raj,

When you say it stops for lunch and tea. I assume you have probably been on the trip. Whats available for lunch and where does it stop?

On board the boat is it possible to buy drinks whilst its sailing along?

thanks,

Tim
