Goa Kayaking’s Daily Expeditions into the rivers, backwaters, mangroves and along the coast, is simply the best way to see, enjoy and explore Goa.
Morning starts, wonderful solitude, serenity and flat calm waters – the stuff dreams are made of?
Enjoy the sunrise on the river as you silently paddle with the waking calls of the birds – not a sound to interrupt your thoughts, as your mind expands and eyes widen in awe, taking in the vistas that continually open in front of you. As we silently glide thro' the mangroves on an incoming tide, the scene changes as the first rays of the sun light up the water with bird life at handshaking distance! Our excursions routes are carefully chosen to take you to places thro’ the mangroves, which abound in bird life and not normally accessible to any other craft. As we approach the halfway stage, our kayakers take a welcome break from paddling to enjoy their snacks, fruit and water.
Goa Kayaking offers daily kayaking trips in all rivers, tributaries and backwaters, along the mouth and the hinterland, at different places all over Goa, depending on the tide.
The expeditions usually take off in the mornings between 7.0 -10.0 am. depending on the tide.
Guests/members paddle their own kayaks at a relaxed pace, enjoying a different perspective from the water, thro’ the mangroves, stopping at the numerous fishing villages, beaches, inlets, coves, etc. for freshening up, exploring, and swimming.
These expeditions are normally of 2.0-3.5 hrs. duration and usually end between 11.30 am.-1.30 pm. when we bid goodbye.
We tend to cover a minimum of 5-6 km. on an upriver float with the tide while the down river paddles on a receding tide, are usually faster and longer, but not very conducive to visiting the mangroves, as water would have receded from the mud banks/flats.
Where we start/end
All guests find their own way to an announced starting point (put in) and our friendly personnel, will guide their cab/pickup coach to the end (pull out) point.
What you will get
Every guest in an expedition will receive
1. Pack containing snacks (optional)
2. Bag of fresh fruit (optional)
3. Bottle/tetrapack of soft drink/fruit juice
4. Bottle of mineral water
It is the opinion of numerous guests who have enjoyed our daily paddles, that the snacks, fruit and coolers on the trip is more than a lunch offered by others!
Goa Kayaking provides all the equipment needed like top of the line single and tandem sit on top kayaks, paddles and life jackets.
It is our experience, that these open SOTs’ (sit on top) are best suited for our tropical, humid climate.(sit in kayaks are very uncomfortable due to the closed area which tends to gets hot and humid).
These modern kayaks, are extremely stable and have a very high buoyancy of 110/150 kg. (solo) and 220/240 kg. (tandems) respectively.
We believe that it is next to impossible for any one to topple and fall out from our kayaks. We also make it a point before embarking and insist that every guest wears a life jacket(PFD) to make our expedition a safe and enjoyable outing.
What to wear/bring along
All guests/members are requested to wear board shorts/rash vests or alternatively any pair of shorts and light shirt /tshirt preferably long sleeves will do.
Wear any footwear which you do not mind getting wet, carry a change of clothing, towels and a bottle of mineral water.
A cap/floppy hat covering the neck, sunglasses and sun block cream, (SPF 35 and above) will help keep you cool and make the time spent on the water, a memorable one!
A camera is a must to capture those magical moments but please use carefully and safely and be responsible for the same.
