Welcome to Goa Kayaking!
Goa Kayaking is one of India's and definitely Goa's leading nature and eco tourism combine, specializing in kayaking and canoeing excursions along the coast, rivers and backwaters of Goa.
Operating out of Chicalim, Vasco da Gama, we run Daily Kayaking Trips throughout the year including the monsoons, in the most safe and scenic rivers of Goa - the Zuari, the Mandovi, the Sal backwaters and the Nerul river.
We allow you to appreciate up close, the thick jungles/mangroves and explore pristine beaches without damaging the environment
We wish to maintain the natural ecosystems which you will find in the mangroves, mudflats, backwaters, coves and mini bays.
So, we strongly discourage touching, eating, smoking and the removal of shells/plants/orchids/flowers/twigs for souvenirs.
We like to limit the numbers in our groups to avoid over crowding. This ensures that our excursions continue to be "the best, low impact, high quality" on the water operation, in the state.
Goa Kayaking's Silver Strings (2, 3, 4) multi day kayaking expeditions, are a combination of our best and most scenic kayaking trips, combined with carefully chosen visits and activities, of the best that Goa has to offer.(check our Kayaking Safari)
The Goa Kayaking Club provides club members and affiliated club members, both local and international, special members only expeditions, picnics, day outings, moonlight kayaking, barbeques, kayak races, river kayak festivals, etc.
Major training programs in kayaking are regularly held in the summer vacations(April & May), Diwali holidays(October-November) and the Christmas break December).
All this, is in addition to the regular round the year training, which is available at our permanent training facilities.
Goa Kayaking in association with Goa Sailboats now provides the best experience in recreational dinghy sailing in the Hollant Velsao Bay area - reputed as the safest sailing area on the West Coast of India, enjoying comfortable sunny weather, with favourable trade winds throughout the fair sailing season.

Unlike others, we prefer to offer to our guests, only sit on top kayaks as these are the best suited to enjoy and relax in our warm and inviting tropical climes.
We have different kayaks which are ideally suited for couples, friends, children and families.
All sailing dinghies are Walker Bay 10s' which are known to be the safest sailing dinghies in the world.
We recommend that you bring sun cream (min.SPF 35), sun glasses, a hat, wear a rash vest /light short sleeve/long-sleeved shirt and shorts/board shorts( as you can burn very quickly on the water), towels, etc.
Wear footwear which can get wet and generally don’t bring anything along which you wouldn’t want to get wet.
A camera is a must to capture those magical moments seen only from the waterline.
We provide fruit, coolers, water, snacks AND above all, an unforgettable water and land experience!
