Thane Creek stands out as a hidden gem for birdwatching enthusiasts. Embarking on a Flamingo boat ride along the creek offers a unique opportunity to witness an abundance of birdlife, including both Lesser and Greater Flamingos. In addition, visitors have the chance to see a variety of other avian species such as Avocets, Northern Shovelers, Grey Herons, Egrets, Plovers, Sandpipers, Black-headed Ibises, among others, making it a memorable experience for all nature lovers.

Trip duration: Around 1.5 hours (Including 1 hour Boat ride)

Important Details

  • There are 12-seater boats (10 seats in shade)
  • There is a basic public washroom near the ticket counter but no washroom facility near the jetty.
  • Due to ongoing maintenance work on the approach road for almost a km hence some extra time should be kept for reaching.
  • Parking is available near the jetty point on the road.
  • Senior citizens with less mobility can find it a bit inconvenient to board the boat due to bamboo jetty. (Can share pics to give you an idea about this)
  • Finding an Ola/ uber or auto while returning from jetty is not feasible so either u have to walk back or keep your cab waiting till boat ride gets over.

Trekking with wandering souls was a safe and good experience. The team leads were genuinely caring and made sure of everyone's safety despite having a large group.The trek was well designed and it also had an introduction session which served as an icebreaker and made the batch more friendly towards eachother. The crowd was decent and blending, you can meet and make new friends. It was my first time trekking with a group and I would join them soon πŸ’ͺπŸ½πŸ‘πŸ½
