Best Sailing Tours in Maharashtra

Maharashtra is a state in India much known for its iconic city, Mumbai which is also the economic capital of India. This coastal state is blessed with both the UNESCO declared world geological site, the Western Ghats and the towering peaks of the Sahyadri Ranges. Towards the west, Maharashtra is flanked by the warm waters of the Arabian Sea. Sailing has always been an important mode of transport in the waters of Maharashtra where back in those days the channel was used for transportation to major cities of Goa and Porbandar. Today sailing in Maharashtra has become a more leisurely activity where the boats are premium catamarans or high end yachts which sail through the sea waters and serves the people a more experiential and fun trip.

 

In Maharashtra, daily sailing trips are conducted between Mumbai and Alibaug, Mumbai and Elephanta Caves, Mumbai to Ratnagiri and Madh Island. Sailing trips are also arranged for private barge parties and people can also avail attractive sailing trip packages like Romantic Sailing on Valentine's Day in Mumbai or Cruise on Grand Soleil 45: mostly organised during special occasions like the Valentine’s Day etc. Apart from these, budget Yacht sailing trips are also organised at a daily basis by different tour operators. Sailing trips in Maharashtra are a fulfilling experience, where one gets to discover new islands, witness spectacular sunrise or sunsets, see exotic fishes like the dolphins, come across flying migratory birds while sailing in the middle of nowhere, all in all sailing is one experience one must indulge at least once in the whole lifetime.

"It was an amazing experience. The tour operators were very helpful and accommodating with respect to our needs. The sailboat was absolutely neat and clean. The guy doing the sailing for us was also very friendly and courteous. He had knowledge about the boat as well as knew about everything related to sailing that an average customer would want to know about. "

The playful waves that ushers love, the gentle breezes of the sea that incites romance, and the candle light dinner that brought us yet closer than before...everything was so very romantic and were really treasurable.

Departing from Gateway, we sailed pass some of the Mumbai’s oldest lighthouses which I had seen only from the land as of now, but with this sail, I got to see it from the sea, and the view was amazing. Accompanied by sea gulls, the experience of the gentle splash of the water as we sailed around was memorable. We were taught the basics of sea awareness. It was amazing. We also learnt how to orient ourselves in the water as we sailed in the sea. As we were passing the Naval base, which was an amazing sight, and the shipping channel was seen where we saw huge ships heading out to far away lands. The captain on board, I forgot his name though, gave loads of information about different types of boats, yachts, and sea vessels. The captain asked us to look out for submarines, and he also said that there would be dolphins. We spotted neither. We also handled the boat one by one for a short while. I chose to relax on the deck and the captain even allowed us to put our feet in the water. It was a mesmerising feeling to feel the water wash away the feet. The sailing experience is such a romantic adventure. This time I came with my cousins, and I am planning to take my fiancé here soon. While I told about this to the captain, he asked me to try it in the morning session as one can catch the sunrise at that time from the yacht.

It was a much needed break for us! The ambience we got to enjoy in the boat was just like the fairy tale kind of story. The way we were welcomed abroad was so catchy. After this, as the boat started moving smoothly over the Arabian Sea, we found it very romantic and loving. After few minutes, we were in the middle of nowhere. It was a feeling that we should not come back to the shores. The openness, love, romance and the beauty of the evening were so captivating and enchanting; the arrangements for the dinner was superb; you really cannot wish more than this. But then came the sad part when we had to return back. Seriously, if there would have option for staying the entire day and night, we would have surely availed that.

For a true romantic candle light dinner cruise in Mumbai with our loved one, it is an amazing option to take her to the alluring shores of Arabian Sea in Mumbai. We both are corporate employees and we hardly get to dine out together. For her birthday, I surprised her with this deal. I took her to the Gateway of India, as we live near Church Gate, I just told her we will take a stroll, and then from there I took her on this cruise. The look on her face was worth all the money spent. We so enjoyed the cruise. It was a true memorable and cherishable birthday for her and a nice day for me.

Would anyone want to miss out the opportunity of sailing on the Arabian Sea, amidst some beautiful activities? I don’t think so. Even I did not miss it and took the opportunity of sailing on it in a cruise amidst the beauty of nature. The journey starts from the Gateway of India, where a speedboat takes you to a keelboat. The keelboat then takes you through the magical Arabian Sea. The beauty of the blue waters meeting the sky in the horizon will surely take all your worries away.

After such romantic moments, now I'm finding it tough to explain it words. All I can say now is that the evening was filled with love and tenderness. The cruise simply took us to a point, where there were only the two of us. Romance was everywhere in the air. And the best part of the candle light dinner arranged on the boat. Amazing foods served in the warmest way and the charm of the evening made it even more flavoursome!
