A wonderful river nearby the hotel, and the 3rd largest river of Sri Lanka. A whole day river cruise could include a visit to a Mangrove Lagoon, . Crocodiles are rare now but there are plenty of water monitors and river birds. It is delightfully relaxing to cruise along the river, detached from the rest of Sri Lanka, wallowing in one’s own -wonder at the magnificence of the riverine scenery.You can have a wonderful trip on one of the boats of Blue Sapphire Fun Tours.

We did three trips with him and all were TOP!
The trip to Yala was awesome, because we saw many anymals there. Our driver was really dedicated to show us everything in the park. The river safari in Bentota was a nice experience. It is a great place to see birds , lizards and crocodiles, also to make unforgetable photos with a baby crocodile. More>>
We used VTS during our 2-week stay at the Centara Ceysands hotel in Bentota (see separate review for hotel). Arranging tours with VTS was very straightforward. I arranged via email on our arrival in Sri Lanka. VTS responded to my emails very promptly
We did two separate tours with VTS tours. The first to sigiriya and damballa caves. The second to yala national park. Both trips were great. The driver Rohan spoke really good English and was very knowledgeable about the area. He really looked after us. Would definitely recommend.
