A good visit

Love dolphin, get a chance to see them very near. Yes, the Irrawaddy dolphins in Satapada are one of the major tourist attraction point in Odisha. Visiting this place in September-November and also in beginning of summer will fetch a good visit. You have to see them by boating only and enjoy some delicious crabs and prawns too.
