If you’re looking for a quieter alternative to the Alleppey backwaters, you just might love the Munroe Island backwaters.
The best way to get a Munroe Island canoe tour would be do go stay on the island for a night or 2 (or more!) and then arrange a canoe tour through your accommodation.
Otherwise, you can probably contact any guesthouse or homestay on Munroe Island and they will likely be happy to arrange it for you.
My backwaters canoe ride cost 500 rupees (US$7) for a 2 hour sunrise canoe tour.
For comparison, Alleppey canoe tours are usually around 1,000 rupees (US$15) but the tours around this price range are full-day tours that come with breakfast and lunch.
A canoe ride through the Munroe Island backwaters will give you a much quieter backwaters experience from a canoe though!
Below are pictures from my canoe ride through the Kerala backwaters around Munroe Island!
What to do after your canoe tour?!
Once you get back to your Munroe Island homestay, you can have a delicious Kerala breakfast waiting for you.
And then, how about…
