Water Sports

Water Scooter
Water scooters accommodate two people on a ride.
This action sport provides all the thrills of a motorbike with the softness of an ocean instead of hard tar road beneath the feet.
They are readily available at Dona Paula jetty, Cidade de Goa, Majorda, and Candolim beach.

Woebeggong and Reeftip sharks, Shovel Nosed and Sting Rays, Nurse Sharks as well as Dogfish are spotted occasionally. The warm waters also teem with playful Bottlenose Dolphins although they are shy of divers.

Very few of these have been found and explored. There are reportedly around 1,000 wrecks along the coast of Goa. Even allowing for gross exaggeration, that still leaves a lot of ships waiting to be found and dived on by lucky, daring divers!

Due to the shallow depths of the continental shelf which limits diving to a maximum of 24 metres, the risk of Decompression Sickness is minimal.

Goa makes a great holiday destination. Make your holiday even better by exploring the underwater world of Goa which very few people have experienced.

Water Skiing
For the speed-lovers Goa offers the thrills of venturing into the sea on speedboats. The high-class speedboats which are available in some places, can achieve speeds of up to 30-40 miles an hour.
These craft, which can carry between six to eight people, are available at the Cidade de Goa, Bogmallo Beach Resort, and Taj Hotels. They can be conveniently used for sightseeing as well as water-skiing.

Swimming
The most common water sport is swimming, although it is least mentioned in the media. The waters around the Goan beaches are warm and almost always safe.
Swimming can be enjoyed by the young, the old, the infirm, the affluent and the budget traveller alike. There are life guards at all Goan beaches, so check with them about the status of the sea, before you jump in.
