When you’re in Goa on holiday during the monsoons, there’s no need to let the rain get you down. You can still enjoy water sports activities in the backwaters. We have a variety of fun rides lined up that we’re sure you can’t resist.
Where? Down south in Mobor, Cavelossim, in the taluka of Salcette. Cavelossim is the southernmost village in Salcette. The River Sal flows through this village and into the Arabian Sea. The white sands and black rocks add to the scenic beauty.
The drive down to Cavellosim is as breathtaking as the place itself. You will be passing through a few Goan villages where you get to see true “old” Goan charm. Typical Goan-Portuguese houses, susegado Goan lifestyle, lots of lush paddy fields and verdant palm groves.
The drive from North Goa area is approx. one hour and fifty minutes on normal days. It could be longer if there’s heavy traffic. Either ways the journey to this destination is worth every moment of the drive.
Rain or shine, we have a jet ski ride, a speed boat ride, a banana boat ride, and a bumper/ ringo ride.
You will be accompaied with a jet ski instructor for safety purposes. In case you are not familiar with what a jet ski is, it is a small propelled vehicle that skims across the water and is ridden like a motorcycle. This is a thrilling ride and if you haven’t experienced it, you should definitely try it out. There’s nothing more exhilarating than zipping across the water, the wind in your hair and slight spray of water on your face. It’s twice as much fun if it’s raining.
The next ride is on a speed boat. This ride needs no description. Another absolutely enjoyable ride.
If you want to test your balance in the water then the banana boat ride is just what you need. It is an inflatable tube that’s towed by a speed boat. Hold on tight and make sure you don’t fall off. This ride is thrilling!
The last ride is the bumper or ringo ride. Another fun ride where you sit on a tube and get towed by a speed boat. You might want to hold on tight while you bump along across the water.
