From Our travel experiences, Here we bring a unique and special boat rides you should take and feel the Moment:
1) Shikara Ride at Dal lake, Shrinagar, J&K.
Shikhara Ride in Dal lake became famous and special from the time it was shot in the movie. This ride gives us altogether a different experience of boating, where you will be treated like Maharaja in Shikhara, in the lake surrounded by Hills. There are 9 spots of visit in the lake like a floating market, only floating post offices of India, Garden and many more. If possible, try to take this ride around sunset. Taking the breathe-Taking view from the Ride and Enjoying tea cups served in Shikara - makes this place come first in our list.

A Gem of place for Pune People. Place is suitable for travelers, photographers, leisure travel people, and camping people. this place is known for migratory birds visiting India during the month of Feb to March. you will get to see thousands of Flamingos and other around 70 types of Birds.
Taking this ride during evening  sunset time is most recommended. try to take a hand boat(Not diesel boat) so that you can witness birds with a closer look. watching sunset from the huge Ujani dam, feeding food to those birds, complete silence around, NO Noise of a single element and listening to a soothing song  " O Maanzi Re...." at a slower volume - a perfect and no other ride can be better than this.
3) Lime Rock Ride at Bhedaghat, MP :
Bhedaghat is a beautiful place near Jabalpur, MP where many movies like Ashoka have been shot. famous for its rock cutting architecture and a holy river Narmada flowing through, a different boating experience you can avail here.
Especially during winter evening, take a 8 seater boat ride of around 2 hrs,  visit different spots on the way. boat guides here try to entertain participants via unique ways,style and content of commentary while showing places. a fun time to interact with boatmen, watching huge height rocks around, small kids diving into water and a satisfying experience of boating.  
4) Mangroves Jungle Ride, Poovar Island, Kerala:
This is a must Take ride for everyone. Ride starts from Poovar town and takes you through dense Mangroves Forest. During the ride, you can see many types of birds, wildlife and different different plantations as well. Many times, Forest is so dense that it gives you a partial feeling of Anaconda hollywood movies. Almost after 2 hrs of ride, it takes you to Poovar Island which is a golden sand beach and you can spend a good amount of time to witness the sunset and play in crystal clear water. Best part of this ride is : this poovar island separates Kerala and tamilnadu by just a soft border.

Hogenakkal Waterfall is in TamilNadu, but just at the border of Karnataka and Tamilnadu. A naturally carved multiple falls is a unique attraction to visit this place. take a coracle ( special round shape boat) which can accomodate 4 people and take a ride to this waterfall in the early morning. a best panoramic waterfall view you can get early morning when there are no crowds. almost 1.30 hrs of ride and you will feel truly majestic experience when water mist and droplets covers you all around, only waterfall sound and special coracle boat. a MUST TRY!
