Had an amazing experience during the trip. Went with may family and enjoyed alot. This was our first time we went for snorkeling and fishing. Snorkeling was easy, but fishing will take time for you to understand properly the functioning of the fishing rod.
Goa was always on my hitlist. All I needed was money (which I saved up somehow) and someone organizing the activities for me (Cheers to Thrillophilia!) These guys were attentive and friendly right from the start. The entire trip was pretty economical; thanks to the discounts they offered. Food was good. Snorkeling was crazy! Trained instructor. Everything was on time. I enjoyed every bit of it. The sight was beautiful. Would recommend to y'all. And, yes, the dolphins have my heart!

Visited Goa for relaxing and had spent three days just relaxing at south goa beaches. We decided to have some fun and booked this tour on Thrillophilia. We got an instant confirmation and the trip was very well organized. The entire experience of snorkelling, swimming, eating barbeque, and the boat ride was great and the day was spent very well.
There are many activities in this package at a very reasonable price. We had pick-up and drop facilities as well. The snorkelling experience was fabulous and resting and relaxing at the beach with barbeque lunch was what made it perfect for us. Thanks, Thrillophilia.

We had so much during this half-day tour. During the boat ride, we had seen many fishes and goa had a great marine life as well as we had to witness amazing marine life during the snorkelling. The instructors were so helpful there.
Snorkelling with Grand Island Trip turns out to be more fun and exciting than what we had expected. Watching the dolphins was incredible and we are lucky to see them. Snorkelling was done under professional supervision, so we are not worried at all and the boat ride was fun and bumpy because of the high waves which were super exciting.
Snorkelling was on our bucket list for a long time and we visited Goa especially for it. Thrillophilia had the best and affordable snorkelling package available and our experience of snorkelling with them was amazing and we had so much fun.
