A boat house is a large vessel used in the waters of Alappuzha for tourists; ironically, it was not designed and introduced for tourists. As Kerala has a unique landscape with prosperous fresh water body, your endless mercy the almighty! It is so easy to move bulk cargo through water. To manage efficient heavy cargo moving, in olden days, huge water vessels were introduced which float royally and worth fully, through the waters of Kerala; a land fondled by raindrops. Those vessels were named "Kettuvalloms" or "Kuvuvalloms" are the ancestors of what we call 'houseboat' or boat house, in these days .
Shikara is comparatively smaller than a house boat. We can take that for granted, as if a shikara were a pick up van on the roads and has been serving the tourists of Alappuzha as a taxi does on land . A Shikara offers seating capacity for four men to twenty men. It is truly meant for cruising remote Alleppey back water villages which are not accessible by huge vessels.
A canoe is a small boat with a carrying capacity for three men . A canoe is meant to be manually operated not mechanically. Alappuzha boat house has a similar cruise package which is described above (read our page Shikara
Motor boats ranges from five seats to one hundred and fifty seats can be availed . If one choose a motor boat cruise they cannot enjoy an overnight stay and they have to to have their food and drinks only on jetties . An Alappuzha motor boat cruise simply offers a wandering through waters of Alappuzha, however, these boats dominated by the early stage of the thriving tourism of Alappuzha.
