Trip to Grande island was a good decision for me. The day was full of Fun. We could see 4-5 dolphins during our sailing. I could see many colorful fishes while snorkeling. Also, I have opted for Scuba Diving and that was awesome. The ambiance was good. I strongly recommend this trip to all travelers reaching out to Goa

We had some water activity in the sea like boat riding and snorkelling which I think was the greatest attraction of the place, supplemented by the delicious barbecue lunch on the beach.
