  • New video film service for guests engaging in rafting activity at a charge
  • New changing room facility

The time to feel like you are at the Amazonas is finally here! White Water Rafting, the best monsoon activity in Goa, that draws thousands of water sports enthusiasts and tourists to Goa has commenced.

With the monsoons in full gusto, the activity promises pure fun for the whole family on river Mhadei even if one does not know swimming. A raft, the rapids and the stunning forested wilderness   of the Mhadei Wildlife Sanctuary is a perfect monsoon getaway.

Nilesh Cabral,  Chairman  of Goa  Tourism Development  Corporation (GTDC)  said, “White Water Rafting is a  water sport  adventure  activity that  has become  very popular  during the monsoons.  Both tourists and local Goans   have been availing of this facility during the last three years and we are confident that the 2016 edition will also get an overwhelming response.”

The river rafting facility will be available from July to October 2016 subject to availability of rapids and adequate water currents, and suitable weather conditions. There will be two trips beginning at 9.30 am and 2.30 pm every day. The rafting activity is open to both adults and children above 12 years.

White water rafting activities are carried out in accordance with the internationally accepted norms.  The instructors are highly trained and operations run with a ‘safety first’ policy. Each passenger will be provided with safety equipments like life jackets, paddles following the instruction sessions from experts.

The  trip starts at the rafters meeting point next to Earthen  Pot Restaurant, Valpoi in North Goa from where a vehicle transports the rafters  through the  jungle on  a 25 minute drive,  followed by a  10 minute walk into the Mhadei river valley before reaching the river side.

The rafting expedition on rafts for 6 to 8 persons through numerous class 2 and 3 rapids covers a distance of approx 10 kilometers in 90 minutes.  Prior to departure, a briefing is conducted for safety and other procedures.

Charges are fixed at Rs 1,800 per head. The total charges with transportation from Panjim (Paryatan  Bhaavan) is Rs 2,500  per head and  from Calangute Residency Rs 2,600 per  head. GTDC has enabled online booking for river rafting.
