About Houseboat overnight trip (evening start at 5 pm on chapora river)
Stay on a goan house boat overnight and have a wonderful time. It is a perfect way to experience Goa like never before. We take guests on a night journey through the Goan Backwaters, to provide you with a fantastic view of the sunset. The gentle lapping of waves and balmy breeze provide a soothing and relaxing experience.
We depart Siolim jetty @ 1700 hrs. sailing past the 16th century Chapora fort and fishermen in their little row-boats, onwards towards the ocean, to swim on the deserted Morjim beach.
After sunset, we sail into the backwaters, alongside little ancient villages dotted with their Temples, Churches and Coconut farms before we moor for the night where you can try your luck at crab fishing whilst you sip your drink. Your crew will serve you a hot tasty Goan - Indian dinner before we call it a night.
You will really feel close to nature as you get to enjoy watching different species of birds settling down for their slumber on trees on the backwaters of Goa.
Day 2 Wake up to a refreshing cup of Tea / Coffee with the chirping of birds, try your luck at fishing whilst having a filling breakfast, and if lucky with some freshly caught & smoked clams or mussels. Then we sail along the silent river with lunch and drop off at the jetty
This trip includes:
- Includes transport from your hotel and back (only from north Goa. For transfers from south Goa there is additional cost)
- Dinner, breakfast, lunch and all inhouse drinks "apart from Wines".
