This tour is physically tiring because of its hectic schedule so it should only be undertaken if you do not have time or the chance to return to this side of the world.. This is a group tour, size might go upto 15 to 20 people. We highly recommend the one and two nights trip, however if this remains the only option then surely Sundarban should not be missed because there are only few places which is as mysterious as Sundarban.
Itinerary of One Day sundarban tour : 5.30 to 5.45 am: pick up from Your Kolkata address. Three hours by road to the the last road point of Godkhali.
8.30 am: We get on our personalized motorboat of four or six cylinder engine and head towards the forest office for permits and witnessing the eroded islands of Sonagao, Bali on one side of the river and mangroves on this other side. Breakfast will be served upon embarking on board.
10.30 am:We reach Sajnekhali forest office where we get permits and start the whole day boat safari into the worlds biggest mangrove jungle of Sundarban, the only with the Royal Bengal tigers.. Apart from the famous Tigers one also has the chance to spot esturian crocodiles, monitor lizard, spotted deers, civet cats, otters and lots of bird species, migratory and locals.. We take the route which has the most number of channels where the low and high tide is at play from time immemorial. Come to witness the beautiful mangroves, the mystery of this land and get more in return. Do not come just to spot tigers you might get disappointed. Logistically we try to cover three watchtower of Sajnekhali, Sudhanyakhali and Dobanki however it depends on a lot of factor and sometimes we would only be able to do the two watchtower, but it just means that we do one less watchtower, does not mean we will spend less time in the jungle..lunch will be served on board.

8 to 8.30 pm: Drop off to your kolkata address.
