Local Traditional Fishing
Alternatively guests may wish to experience fishing in local traditional boats and smaller less equipped vessels. The smaller fishing boats are the ones used for the dolphin watching trips located at Kirinda Harbour. The resort staff can make the necessary arrangements, but the resort management will not take any responsibility for this excursion trip, since the local fishing boats have limited safety equipment and fisherman have poor English language skills. Fishing nets, used by local people can also be used on the beach or by the river to catch small species of fish.
Adventure Catarman Fishing
The option is also available for guests who are more adventurous to try out traditional style fishing in catamaran boats. This type of fishing is challenging and physically difficult, depending on the sea conditions. This catamaran fishing trip can only take a maximum of two guests. The structure of a catamaran boat is much narrower than most boats. Therefore it is advised that only guests who are physically fit and have a lean body type undertake this activity. This is high risk adventure activity and the management will not be held responsible for any aspect of these trips.
There are many boulders that can be climbed to find a quiet reading or reflective spot. Boulder are a great place to observe turtles in the ocean below or even for fishing from the rocks.
