A sister concern of Marvel tours, this company focuses on Houseboat Tours. A Houseboat Tour is, arguable, the best way to "do" Kerala. Officially recognized as a golden category operator by the Government of Kerala, Marvel Cruise has a fleet of top-of-the-line, airconditioned and non-airconditioned multi-bedroom houseboats.
These houseboats or Kettuvalloms as traditionally called, are converted rice boats. Held together only by coir ropes coated with a black resin made from boiled cashew kernels, they are marvels of engineering. These surprisingly sturdy creations once sailed from town to town, laden with rice and spices. Today, it has become one of the most popular ways to discover Kerala, and most travellers count their Kerala experience without a houseboat Tour.
Marvel Cruise works to offer hassle-free houseboat tours, where the local flavour is carefully maintained, be it in the eco friendly material that outfits each craft, or in the smiling faces of the crew who are locals. Each houseboat features fully outfitted living rooms, sundecks, bedrooms and ensuite bathrooms. And above all, nature at its unfettered best!
