Backwater Thrills in Goa

About Backwater Cruise in Goa from GTDC

Goa has fames cruises along the Mandovi’s mangrove lined banks, and the islands of Chorao and Divar and Old Goa City.

The excursion itself is like a trek back in time to the Goa of old where life was straightforward and wonderful. You see miles of rich greenery and thick mangroves. If you are lucky you may see an expansive crocodile sunning himself throughout his evening break. Immense freight boats float soundlessly through the shimmering water of this moderate moving stream. As you go further upriver you see the stacking docks where huge amounts of iron mineral are stacked on to the freight boat from tipper trucks.

This cruise is an unquestionable requirement bird-watchers. The journey takes you near to the migratory and resident birds along the riverine tip of Dr Salim Ali’s Bird Sanctuary at Chorao Island.
