Adventure of a lifetime
Own your dream kayaking adventure and share it with your friends
Added Kayaking in Varkala or Kayaking in Kollam to your bucket list? Say yeah!
Of all the places you’ve dreamed of going, a kayaking trip in Paravur Lake is going to be one of the most rewarding and timeless experiences. No adventurer’s must-visit list is complete without kayaking to and through mangrove forest in Paravur Lake.
One of the best mangrove forests near Varakala you can paddle in and through. Total distance of the round trip is 9 km. The trip starts from Syzygy and covers the entire Paravur Lake including the Upper (mangroves) and Lower (sandbars) waterbodies. Mangrove forest kayaking trip is suitable only for adults; children may not be able to cover this distance and hence not recommended for this trip.
Black Devil Snail Sandbar is one of the best coastal wetlands with an amazing view. Total distance of the round trip is 2 km. The trip starts from Syzygy and the paddlers are guided to the sandbar in the middle of Lower Paravur Lake. Naturally formed near the spillway regulator bridge, it is a cluster of three independant sandflat islands which make it an ideal intertidal place for paddling with your friends and family.

Very beautiful and serene spot for kayaking. We enjoyed the sunset trip to the sandbar on a double seated sit-on-top kayak which spanned for 2 hours. The instructions were very simple and straightforward. We were accompanied by the instructor who guided us through the lake. The spot is perfect for beginners as the water is not too deep. The landscape is very aesthetic with the dark green color of the lake. Near the island where the water is shallow, a lot of snails were seen. In short, a must try and a very pleasant experience.

Fantastic spot for kayaking in the Paravur Backwaters, just about 15 kms / 20 mins from Varkala towards Paravur side. The backwaters are absolutely still, and the water is shallow in the specified areas of the lake. Options of single, dual kayaks and three seater canoes are available. Ideal place for a team outing as they have many kayaks.
You get top notch safety and operation instructions from Mr Alen Netto who operates this place. We had a wonderful experience kayaking with Syzygy, and will surely come again.
Would recommend to make a call a book a slot before you get there. You can call on the number given in google.
Thank you Mrs. Jennifer and Mr. Alen for the help!

My best kayak experience and which got me hooked to it. Syzygy is highly recommended, extremely professional and they make sure you have a good time. I took the short and long route, kayak around the mangrove forest was surely the best. Danny explained everything well before starting the route, safety guideline clearly given. I’m coming back sure with my gang.

Excellent experience, caring and attentive instructors. The ride through the mangroves is one of a kind. If you like to paddle yourself and are not afraid or bring wet, opt for kayak. If you prefer to stay rather dry and just enjoy the ride, opt for canoe. Prices are very reasonable. Can’t recommend enough!

It was one of the best experience for me, it was tough, like really tough and tiring even for people in peak fitness level, takes up a lot of energy to finish off the round trip. And make sure you take enough water and some chocolate bars to boost yourself. Thanks to syzygy and its coaches for this experience.

The most amazing kayak experience in the backwaters next to a beach in Kerala! What a way to enjoy a serene sunset. Highly recommend people to choose SYZYGY while they are in Kerala because it is worth more than what you’d spend!
