It's pretty well organised and they're following the basic safety procedures and it's a good ride. You can choose long or short rides. This place has clean toilets too.

Super, one should definitely go boating to enjoy the holidays. They also provide stay in boat. I and my family enjoyed Beach and the store in the beach.

This place is literally the starting point of paradise beach as you need to purchase the ticket from here. You also have few eateries where you can grab a bite. Overall, nothing much to do here.

Most of the time you will always find rush and speed boat to be full so cutting cake there might not be a good idea. You can always do it before you board the boat or once you get off to the beach.

It all depends on the intensity of the rain. Any boatman will think of the safety of his boat,passenger and himself in case the waters get turbulent. Moreover,It's in your own interest not to go.
