Monsoons in Goa are by far the most exhilarating time especially for a pluviophile (a person who loves rain).The warm scent of the earth after the first rains is the most invigorating feeling. The sound of the rainfall has a calming effect. The surroundings are verdant and deep green. It’s a different kind of “alive” feeling. What’s more is that our trips don’t stop during this enchanting time of year. We have an exciting Monsoon Fun Adventure Backwater Cruise Trip with Water Activities to crank up the level of excitement of your monsoon holiday.
What’s onboard the backwater cruise:
Now that we have your attention the boat you will board on for The Monsoon Fun Adventure Backwater Cruise Trip is a fifty seater catamaran style boat, with a fully functional top deck. The top deck is perfect for sunbathing during fair weather, and a lot of fun in the rain if you enjoy sitting out in the open.

The morning trip begins at 10:00 a.m. and ends at 1:00 p.m. and the second trip begins at 2.30 p.m. - 5.30 p.m. The boat leaves from Narvekar Jetty, Britona.

Cruising Location and what to see:
The Monsoon Fun Adventure Backwater Cruise Trip will ply away from the Arabian Sea towards the Mandovi Backwaters opposite the Salim Ali Bird Sanctuary. Please make sure that you wear the safety gear provided to you at all times while you sail.
The Salim Ali Bird Sanctuary was named after famous ornithologist Salim Ali, and is located on the western tip of the island of Chorao. It is an estuarial mangrove rich in flora and fauna. One can see a variety of birds here. There are also Indian Otters that gambol around in the water. Very rarely can a mugger crocodile be spotted basking on the banks cleverly hidden among the mangrove.
On your way towards the backwaters you will pass by old Goan-Portuguese houses on the banks of the Mandovi River. What is unique about these old houses is that the main entrance of the houses face the water. You will also see a few churches while you cruise along.
