River Rafting in Goa: Upto 20% OFF on Rafting Tours

The very thought of Goa brings to our minds sun-kissed beaches, blue waters, and a picturesque landscape as far as your eyes can see. But Goa is also famous for adventure sports such as river rafting in Goa, which has led to adventure lovers from all over the country flocking in here. Basking in the sun along the coastline of the Arabian Sea, Goa offers you much more than just beaches and spices, and a mix of Indian-Portuguese culture and heritage that offer a spiritual retreat. Goa is a place to embrace with enthusiasm given the wide range of activities you can do here.

River rafting in Goa is an unforgettable experience that one must choose to do. The sport is extremely common and popular in Goa, where you can find rafting trips to the Mandovi river, Valpoi river, Tilari river, and adventure trips to Tiswadi and Dandeli. It is an amazing adventure to find the sea, hills, and river in the same destination as Goa offers you. So while you can take part in river rafting in the morning, you could relax by the Arabian Sea in the evenings from a day well spent.

Located at a distance of 46 kilometres from Goa, the Mandovi river offers you scenic beauty as well as the thrill of river rafting and swimming. You can take NH748 to reach here. The Mandovi river flows along the Mhadei Wildlife Sanctuary, so you will enjoy the lush riverside and forest too, a scenic treat unmatched in every manner in the Western Ghats. Rafting in the waters of Valpoi river is interesting too, covering a distance of 10 kilometres where you encounter rapids such as Big Daddy, Y Fronts, Giant Haystacks, and Pipeline.

If you are an adventurer at heart, this is a treat you mustn’t miss. A typical river rafting session takes up to two-three hours, and the entire trip might take up to twelve hours in case of travelling to Dandeli from Goa. When planning for river rafting tours in Goa, make sure you carry a swimsuit, sunscreen lotion, sunglasses, a cap or hat, scarves, slippers, and extra clothes that you can change into after the activity.

There are good facilities at all the river rafting points for your convenience. It’s best if you have your own vehicle at your disposal during your rafting session so you can start upstream and have your vehicle waiting for you at the end point of your tour downstream. Apart from river rafting in Goa, you can also enjoy kayaking, coracle boat ride, natural jacuzzi bath, and crocodile spotting. However, all of these are available at Dandeli only.

River rafting can be enjoyed by anyone, even people with basic fitness levels. So when you plan a trip to Goa next, make sure you have enough time in hand to go for river rafting trips in the area. As enjoyable as these are, there will be some of the best and memorable events of your trip to Goa.

Goa Rafting brings you the ultimate adventure experience The swimming ability is not required. It’s recommended to bring sportswear, strong summer footwear, swimming suit, sunscreen and drinking water. You will not be allowed to take a mobile phone, camera or photo camera, wallets and jewelry.though we were very excited for this sport but it was a bit costly and not much thrilling compared to what we had tought.. But for an expirence was quite .They only take you under water for 15 minutes and you will return back to the shore.And the complimentary pics are not clearly visible and you get only one picture.They are a great bunch of people, I didn't just have a great diving experience, but I made some cool friends too. Thank you Goa Diving. Keep up the good work!

Experience which I will cherish for my lifetime. My visit to scuba diving island was among one of my best outings compared to my other outings. But this could be not possible because of seawater sports, they provide excellent facilities with affordable price packages. I will recommend you all if you planning your trip to goa go through seawater activity.
