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.

Sea Kayaking

MORNING BEACH KAYAKING – Rs990 per person (minimum two persons)
Kayak out to two secluded beaches — where no tourist goes — in the quiet, calm waters on a Goa morning. Collect shells. Swim in clear, sheltered sea waters. Happens every morning from October to May, 7.30am to 10.00am.

SECRET BEACH KAYAKING – Rs1,490 per person (minimum two persons)
We take you kayaking to a serene and completely secluded little beach. Fish splash out of the water as you kayak in the shallows. It’s very heaven…
From October to May, everyday, 3 hours, 7.30 am to 11.00 am

SUNSET KAYAKING – Rs990 per person (minimum two persons)
Sunset kayaking off Bambolim Beach is magical. After all, who can resist a Goa sunset?
