"I love the water so I liked taking a ride on Chilika Lake, stopping on a beach and eating fresh fish. The trip was ostensibly to see dolphins, which I did see, but I see dolphins at home too. So the real enjoyment was just being out on the water on a terrific day.
"This is my second visit to Chilika Lake; the lake is simply spell binding. We drove up to the Satapada in a private vehicle from Puri. The distance is around 50 kms from Puri to Satapada by road. We took a boat to Chilika Lake from Satapada.
"Boating on Chilika Lake, located at Satpada some 90 mins drive from Puri , is an awesome experience . But one must be wary of those who sell pearls at very high prices, nearly 15-20 times their real worth . Although much advertised, dolphins are practically a " no show", you just get to see some tails or small backs.
