Kayak


Kayaking has a charm that is all its own. It’s you, alone, in a boat powered just by you. You could paddle or you could ponder. All of nature’s majesty lies before you…

We teach kayaking basics. It’s not difficult. A 10-minute briefing followed by a 10-minute familiarisation exercise on the water is sufficient for even a complete novice to participate in any of our kayaking excursions. Our expert instructors accompany you as you kayak in the sea to reach secluded little beaches or through backwater mangrove wonderlands.

Goa’s seas and backwaters provide an astonishing variety of sights and experiences that you will remember long after you leave. Tiny deserted beaches, charming beach shacks, traditional fisherfolk, dense mangrove forests, birds, water life, bunds, traditional houses and the strange trappings of modernity intermingle. It’s an irresistible package.
