Lagoon Safari
I did the lagoon safari with Budget Arugam Bay Tours. Booking the tour was super easy over email with Ansa. A tour guide was provided and also a local fisherman paddled the boat. We saw elephants, eagles, and other birds. This is a very calm & relaxing tour on the water. We were picked up and dropped off at our hotel.

Nice safari and lagoon trip
Very well organized and good communication throughout. We did the Kumana Safari and the Lagoon boat tour. The latter was very relaxing. For the national park it is perhaps best to ask for a guide, as this can enhance the experience by getting some more background information and improved animal spotting.

Lagoon Tour
We stayed at the Star Rest Surf Camp Arugambay for three nights, and this is how we met Ansa, the owner of Budget Arugambay Tours, as he also works as a hotel manager.

So on day two we booked the tour to the lagoon at Pottuvil point.

With transport by Tuk Tuk from and to the hotel the tour took about 2.5h.

We the explored the lagoon with a local fishermen cooperative guide, and saw a plethora of birds which Faina all pointed out to us. Also a herd of elephants grazed on adjacent field.

Sometimes one can also see crocodiles there – for us this time no such luck.

There is a stop at the magnificent beach of Pottuvil point before heading back – if you like, you can buy refreshments there.

All in all it was a very relaxed and enjoyable tour that we can only recommend.

Amazing Mangroove Tours
We went on the morning lagoon tour. Lots of birds, an elephant and glimpsed a crocodile. Stopped for tea at the lagoon entrance and saw plenty of fish being caught by the local fisherman. Our guide Ansa was awesome and explained the way the tours supplemented the fisherman’s income and how the work was shared by the community. Lovely to just cruise quietly through the mangroves. Good length, easy your with young kids.

A perfect Evening Safsri
The lagoon tour was absolutely stunning. Very serene and relaxing. We saw many birds, fish and even elephants bathing in the lagoon. But even if we didn’t see any of wildlife I would still recommend. Our guides were lovely. Watched a beautiful sunset on top of a rock at Pottuvil beach point before heading back. One of my favorite memories of my time here. Definitely go and support the fishing community!

I was Highly Recommend

Amazing Wildlife Trip to the Lagoon
Me and my boyfriend loved our trip with Budget Arugambay Tours on our Sri Lankan holiday in April 2014. We took the early morning tour to the Lagoon where we watched the sunrise and did a wildlife safari. We saw so many animals and birds and the sun rise over the water was beautiful!
Faina is an excellent guide and really knowledgeable and hard working. He made sure everything was perfect and the tour with him was a magical experience!
Everything was amazing and I would recommend Budget Arugambay Tours to anyone visiting Sri Lanka. We hope to come back soon too! Ansa
