About Adventure Breaks
Adventure Breaks offers Kayaking, Cycling, Sailing, Ocean Treks, Rock Climbing and Sea Swims in Goa. We also organise Triathlons, Marathons and Tower Runs. Go on an Ocean Trek (on mountains facing the sea) or rock climbing on seaside cliffs. Kayak in the backwater mangroves or to an island out at sea. Go spotting crocodiles on a kayak. Sail in a boat powered only by the wind, and watch a glorious sunset. Take a day trip to Grande Island, to watch colourful sea life while snorkelling. Swim out in the deep sea, or join our Mega Mandovi River Swim. Go on an off-the-beaten-path cycling odyssey. Test your mettle in competitive adventure events like our Tower Runs, Moonlight Beach Marathons and Sprint Triathlons…
Sightseeing, eating, drinking, sunbathing, sleeping and reading — we’ve all been there and done that — now try a tiny slice of thrill. And do it safely. Adventure Breaks offers safe, guided adventures. You are in the hands of qualified and experienced guides. We follow all international safety norms.
Nothing we do is motorised; we have no parasailing or jetskis, no speedboats or banana rides, no motorcycles or go-karts. The only motor we use is a small-capacity outboard motor on a safety boat, or a mini-bus to pick you up and drop you back. Adventure Breaks is deeply committed to the environment. We strongly discourage litter of any kind, on land or water. We require you to bring back all garbage for disposal in a proper facility. We discourage use of plastic that cannot be recycled.
