Go for Backwater Kayaking
The sea and water escapes of Goa present a perfect opportunity to indulge in backwater kayaking across the various waterways of the state. The Zuari River, The Mandovi River, The Sal Backwaters and Nerul River are especially ideal for indulging in this sport. This activity can be availed at any time during the year including monsoons. However, if it is the season of rains, make sure you carry and wear appropriate water repellent clothing to avoid any slippage or loss of grip on the oars of the kayak.
A kayaking tour will bring you to up, close and personal with the vegetation and flora and fauna of the state. You can spot rare river birds, both local and migratory and witness the fine balance of ecology and flora and fauna. The mangroves and varied flora is surely a sight to study and behold. These Kayaking tours can be availed on a single day or as a longer activity of about 5-6 days.
