Houseboat Stay

A trip to the Sundarban National Park is an experience of a lifetime. The unique landscape, flora, fauna and avifauna of the forest leave a lasting memory in the minds of visitors. One way to enhance that experience is by spending a night on the boat. The Houseboat stay allows guests to experience the serenity of the park and enjoy the sights and sounds of the jungle as it comes alive at night.

As part of the Houseboat stay, guests stay on the MV Oceanus, our luxury cruiser. The boat is equipped with western toilets, life jackets and life buoys, first aid kit, a kitchen, trained staff,  comfortable seating, sun and rain shade as well as fully stocked bar.

During the day, guests can explore the park as part of the boat safaris organised by the Sunderban Tiger Camp. In the evening, guests can choose to have the boat dock near the resort or select spots near the surrounding villages. Guests can enjoy the facilities of the resort if the boat is docked nearby. In the night, they are escorted back to the cruiser.
