houseboats are not available from Cochin to Alleppey
you have to come to Kumarakom or to Alleppey side of backwaters for houseboat stay and cruise

@James,

No reason why you couldn't spend three nights in (Fort) Cochin, and three on a houseboat, if you really want to slow down. You can get a vehicle for travel between the two.

That said, this company does advertise cruises Allepey / Cochin - see the final listing on this page

http://cocohouseboatskerala.com/back...ise_tours.html

"You can also have the house boat cruise from Alleppey to Kochi. On the way, the places of interest are paddy fields, Pathiramanal, Kumarakom bird sanctuary and villages. The Kochi Destination is Eda kochi (12 Km.) One the way there is a bund which differentiate the sea water and lake water. This one day and night trip can enjoy both the village life and city life. A bit boring route can't enjoy the scenic beauty of backwaters in full. Because the route is the middle of the Vembanad Lake."
