Sail out at 3.30pm from Dona Paula and sail to Spring Beach. The beach gets its name from the fresh water spring right at the sand’s edge, where you can wash off the salt after having a dip in the sea.
Explore the ruins of the historical Mormugao Fort on the hillsides above the beach. Lounge about. Have a swim. Do your thing. We leave just before sunset, get a grand vista of the sun going down over the sea, and return to Dona Paula shortly after dark.

Our sailing boats are powered only by the wind. There’s no irritating throb of an engine, just the sound of the wind in the sails and the waves splashing. Sailing is relaxed and peaceful. There’s no need for speed. We go at the pace of the wind (which, sometimes though, can be quite fast).
We offer two types of sailing boats:
(1) Seabird: Fast, 21-ft open gunther-rigged sailing boats with no cabin and no toilet. Capacity: 4
(2) Mini Cabin Cruiser: Somewhat slower 18-ft bermuda-rigged sailing boats with a cuddy cabin and marine toilet. Capacity: 4
These boats are equipped with life jackets for safety, have outboard motors (for use only in emergencies) and are handled by experienced and competent skippers. We operate out of Dona Paula, 8km from the Panaji Bus Stand.
