Getting around Kerala by Houseboats and Ferry

With a coastline running over 500 sq Kms of land along the Arabian sea, Kerala’s marine transportation is just as active as it road and air travel. Small boats and sea jets ferry passengers from one district to the other, while houseboats cruise on the backwaters. Houseboats will usually slowly travel a distance of around 40-50 kilometers (25-30 miles) through the backwaters each day, so you'll get to see lots of different scenery. The best place for hiring Kerala houseboat is Alleppey and Cochin. You'll find hundreds of them there.
