Adventure Sports in Goa

Goa is unarguably a paradise for those who love adventure sports. A trip to Goa is incomplete without availing atleast a few of the plethora of opportunities it offers.

With a long beautiful coast, lush Sahyadri Hills running through the state and innumerous operators offering a range of activities, Goa remains a favourite hub for water as well as land sports.



Parasailing is one of the most wonderful sports allowing one to literally have a bird’s eyeview of the surroundings and beyond.

Here one is tied by a long harness to the parasail on one end and to the boat or jeep on the other end. Depending on the type of parasailing the automobile (boat/jeep) paces ahead and lifts the person in the air inflating the parasail.

There are two types of parasailing – beach parasailing and winch-boat parasailing.

In beach parasailing one is launched from the beach and lands back on the beach while in winch boat parasailing one takes off from a winch-boat and lands back on the winch boat.

Besides, whereas in beach parasailing a duo can go together, winch-boat parasailing has to be taken solo.
