Houseboat day trip duration is always flexible and fixed according to guest requirement. Minimum 3hrs to maximum 7-8hrs can be booked for a day trip. But duration of day trip is depending upon which are the places you are visiting during the trip. In an overnight experience, you are visiting a good number of beautiful canals and villages. If you compare the same and want to convert to a day trip, you need minimum 6hrs in houseboat to experience the backwaters.

A daytime cruise for riceboat fans who don't have time to stay overnight but don't want to miss out on an experience of the famous Kerala backwaters from the comfort of a traditional Kerala Kettuvallam. Usually between 11.30 am and 5:30 pm.
The cruise can start from Alappuzha and includes a cruise across Vembanad Lake before you motor into the canals and rivers of the backwaters proper. You will moor for a traditional lunch of boat cooked Kerala curries and vegetables before you spend the afternoon taking in the sights and sounds of this traditional Kerala world. Spot the many birds that live beside the water, hear the calls of the toddy tappers or itinerant merchants peddling their wares from the back of small canoes or see the farmers managing the complex process of draining or refilling the verdant green rice paddies.
As the afternoon draws to a close we stop for an early evening dinner before returning you calm and refreshed to the jetty for your onward journey.
If you want to spend a day in a memorable and most exciting way, day cruising in the backwaters is the best option. Seeing the endless lagoons, paddy fields, canals, villages are the overwhelming experience. Different backwater birds, and green paddy fields on the backwaters, the household activities of rural people are a naïve experience while you are on a day cruising.
